I hate to be more of a dick than I normally am, but is there interest in having a group doing a combined Moonlight Basin-Big Sky lift ticket/terrain exploration one day.? (Tony C mentioned it, but it was on my radar...) I am asking now, cuz the lodging option posted here by Lady S and Das Boot allows for a combined ticket. And I'm thinking of booking it in the next few days. I know of a few who have already booked it.
AFAIK, this would be for useful for only advanced skiers in steep exposed terrain (we know who we are from previous Epic Gatherings.) I'm already in touch via email with separate likely trip partners for lodging, car rentals, etc.
Nolo, sorry for complicating your logistics, but 1) Big Couloir will pose a logistics challenge regardless 2) I only get so much vacation time so I have to hit it when I can.
If we do this, I propose doing it on Thursday or Friday. This will allow us newcomers to assess the terrain. Even though I'm one of the newcomers, I'll be willing to accept guide duty for the day. (I am a terrain bird dog. But I'll gladly defer guiding to a local for this proposed excursion.)
