I'm headed to Big Sky in March for the first time, and have a couple of questions:
1. We are staying adjacent to Moonlight Lodge and I am trying to sort out the fastest route to the tram in the morning. Is it possible to get to Lone Peak Triple from Challenger and/or is there a better way than that?
2. I'm interested in the North Summit Snow Field. I've read avy gear is required; is this true regardless of conditions? I already have gear/training, but my friends do not. Can anyone recommend a place they could rent beacons? Is the beacon training area in between Challenger and Iron Horse available for anyone to use?
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
