The more I see of Big Sky, the more I wish I'd told my husband to reschedule the Summit county trip, so I could do this ESA!
Check out this TR!!

And this pic!

Yes, many will be missing out on perhaps the best ESA ever. Twenty students. Four coaches. Five thousand skiable acres. The math alone is impressive.

Here's the quote from that pic by PhilPug:
YC fell through today. My contact there didn't show up so I skied Big Sky. OMFG, what a mountain, this place is huuuuge. Whoever is on the fence regarding going to ESA there, close this page and go sign up. NOW.
That pic reminds me...
When you go to Taos the main chairlift goes up Al's Run (?name) which is a steep moguled expert run. It's a little disconcerting if you don't ski that type of trail. There's a sign at the base of the chairlift that says:

"Don't Panic! This is only 1/30th of the Mountain. There are easier ways down."

I don't think any of the clinic groups will be skiing the backcountry during ESA, Mike. There's plenty of hair-raising skiing that we can do without transceivers and shovels -- for those who want it. On the other hand, if you like being fully equipped for all situations, by all means, bring all your avvy gear.

Mike, I do have 2 of each . So, if you don't want to bother with your stuff - I gladly let you use mine.

(Your own transceiver is a good idea though.)

thanks Ursula i appreciate it. Doesn't sound like we will be doing the coulair, which is probably just as well for me as my skiing is a bit of a mess at the moment as I'm sorting out a bunch of things. I'm excited about ESA as I think I might be at a point where I'm ready to move to the next plateau. I do wish I would be able to ski with you, though. Maybe you'll be able to join us for a run or two!

I am planning on it!
