    Glad to see your getting some fresh snow! I was there last week, only 2" of snow all week and temps didn't get over 8 deg. Lenin and Marx off tram were ok A-Z's and big col. were SCARY. Hope everyone has a great time!

    I leave tomorrow morning so it would have to be today. If that works that’s great. If not I’ll follow the Minks

    Looks like you have been having fun at Big Sky. PM me if you want a guide for the lines you haven't skied. I can't be at the base at 9:00 AM but can meet up later.

    I am out most days this week and may have spotted some of the PugSki group on Lone Moose yesterday. With the lower visibility in the snow and wind, I have been in the trees.

    Below tree line has been a good place to be with all the snow. Yesterday was better but Monday was tough visibility

    White on white above the tree line makes for tough skiing for me. I can wait for better visibility, but understand some visitors feel like they "must". Skiing from green lollipop to lollipop down Liberty in a white out isn't my idea of fun.

    Most of us don't know you. No way we're just going to stumble into you by accident at a place this big. Maybe check in with is us our 8:45 boot up tomorrow?

    I don't access the mountain at the main base area and can't be there at 8:45 AM.
