Big Sky/Moonlight Basin conditions

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Anyone been skiing either mountain recently? Headed out in a week, but have been hearing it's kind of sketchy.

 

Thanks for any info!

I skied Big Sky about 3 weeks ago. The snow was decent but coverage was thin then, with everything open though. I think they have had a few decent storms since, so I would imagine it would be skiing pretty well.

Hey JGTski. Moonlight is skiing/riding great right now. Not sure what you like to ride, but we have something for everyone right now. We have about 80% of our terrain open, 47" base at mid mountain, and all 7 of our lifts are running. I've been riding a ton the last few days and it's not sketchy. Check out this little edit my partner put together last Saturday. I'll give you a good idea of what conditions are like right now. Hit me up when you get into town. I'll guide you around for a day and we cam go make some turns. Sound good?

Sorry for the barrage of repeat messages. Glitch with my computer.

Big Sky had several good snowfalls last week, with 5 in. on Thurs. 2/2, a crowd of locals that skied it off on Fri., but what a glorious day Sat. was, sunny and cold and clear. By Sun. a lot of the glades were scraped out, but the top, most open runs above 9000 ft., were holding up nice. Lone Mtn. bowl was great for laps, Lenin (off the tram) excellent, Challenger had some bare spots and the usual vicious rock traps. Shedhorn and Dakota down low had gotten pretty crusty. I skied with folks from Park City and Vail who were happy to have the snow.

That puts you here around the beginning of March, yes? One of the best times to be skiing here at MLB!

Actually we arrive in BZN on 3/13. 3/15-3/17 we're taking the Steeps Clinic with Dan Egan at Big Sky. One day to warm up before that, on 3/14, we plan to ski Moonlight. On 3/18 & 3/19, the plan is to ski Bridger Bowl. Then, unfortunately we'll have to return home.

Let me know if you want my $5 tour of Bridger on the 18th. (Its $20 if you whine about the bumps, $40 if you mention the Giants beating the 49ers.)

Hard to know what it will be like a month from now, but it's been snowing hard since seven this morning, with about four or five inches on the ground at 7500 feet. (the base)

Glad to hear that the snow is falling again.  I will be arriving on the 19th and skiing starting the 20th.  Never been to Big Sky before so looking forward to checking out both Big Sky and Moonlight.

It snowed again this morning, with a trace overnight. You'll have a ball!

We'd definitely love the $5 tour on the 18th! Assuming,of course, we still have any legs left after Egan skis us into the ground. Love moguls, however! No knowledge of the Giants/Niners game either - I am a pathetic and lonely Bills fan. biggrin.gif

Wait until you see the moguls in the North Bowl....they look like they used to look in the 60 and early 70s. You'll want to pack them up & ship them back home.
