Big Sky Question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
What equipment is need to ski the Couloirs and the interconnect to Moonlight Basin from the Lone Peak summit?

I know of the check in at the patrol shack and the beacon requirement but is a shovel and probe required also? And is there anything else?

Yep, transceiver, shovel and probe. And you will need one partner for the Couloir. For the North Summit Snowfields you can invide three more friends.

A big pair of stones is helpful.

What do you mean by three friends?

You can go in groups of four at the Snowfields, but only two at a time through the Couloir.
Does it now make more sense?


(Or do I understand your question wrong and you are asking me what three friends are?)

That was my question. I knew of the pair rule for the Couloirs, but wording did not make sense on the snowfields. Thanks. I actually found the answer to my original question on the Moonlight Basin trail map. No probe is required only partner, shovel, beacon and sign out at shack. I am trying to plan the trip and what is being packed since airlines are charging for extra bags now. Is there a place to this equipment at Big Sky? We are most likely staying at the Whitewater or Buck's.

Thanks.

Sorry for the delay with an answer, but I was busy doing other fun stuff.

I assume you wanted to know if you can rent the equipment in Big Sky. I am not 100% sure, but I think Grizzly Outfitter does. Here is a link to their website.

I know the snowsport school has the equipment too, but you will have to hire a guide to get access to it.

Hope this helps.

Anyone know if any other runs at Big Sky and Moonlight require partners, sign out or avy gear?  I hope to visit this winter and I probably wont have a partner or avy gear so I'm hoping the AZ chutes, gullies, dictator, dirtbag, headwaters and whitewater areas don't have any restrictions.  Appreciate the help.

I don't believe the a-z chutes require gear or a partner. The other areas you mention do not.
