Pretty Cool "Semi" Core Montana Backcountry Experience

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

If your looking for a BC trip that has a fun, unique aspect to it. Great Northern Powder Guides out of Whitefish, Montana offer overnight BC Catskiing/Yurt trips. Pretty sweet deal waking up on the mountain embedded in the goods. We did this trip last year during a historic warm trend but we still had an incredible adventure. If your looking for a pretty core experience this is damn close.

 

Therer's plenty of terrain for varying abilites. We were able to hit some huge gladed areas, plenty of steep pitches and even a few rock drops.

 

 

Your digs, This Yurt has a basement for sleeping which makes plenty of room in the living area. They just added another Yurt next to this over the summer.

 

Lots of open areas with decent pitches

Here's a video from our trip last season during the nasty El Nino!

Last year's El Nino petered out to nothing and it was the Blob that did us in, not an El Nino.

Yep, your right on the "Blob", fortunately it's on it's way out!

I found this info on the Vancouver Business paper, 

"A mild El Nino was in effect last winter, but the very warm conditions were largely due to an unusual “blob” of very warm water in the Pacific Ocean, “the Blob is on its way out.”

“The high pressure ridge and calm winds over the northeastern Pacific Ocean that caused it form from fall 2013 to summer 2015 are now gone, replaced with the normally occurring low pressure systems and much windier conditions,”

It's already looking like a promising year after this past week and whats in store for the next few weeks! I'm ready.
