Snow Quality in MT; Bridger and Big Sky

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was thinking about heading towards Bozeman and hitting Bridger and Big Sky, but it looks like the snow may be boilerplate at this point? How are the resorts skiing right now?

 

Thanks for any info,
D

Maybe I should phrase it this way, was the new snow a a good reset, or will it mostly amount to dust on crust that will be gone in a few days?

BS skied well today-not dust on crust-very good chalky lines if you know where to look. It has been pretty cold still.Our problem this year has been the WIND-it seems that a lot of our snow gets blown off the mountain right after it comes down and things firms up due to being scoured out. Good today off the tram, soft in the gullies especially below the transitions. But that can change daily! The bowl was not great, but not bad either-I enjoyed my few laps under bluebird skies skiing the chalk.

 

Coverage is great right now -and the only crusty spots I found were over on Shedhorn/Dakota-did not ski Challenger today however (last week it WAS dust on crust on Chally). Last week was more crusty for sure. But again, we did get hammered by the wind after our last storm a few days ago. It really hasn't gotten very warm yet. Single digits when I started this AM.

 

December was fantastic, January was not, Feb had some awesome days, and March is setting up nicely

Thanks for that. I'm feeling better about it now.
