Anyone wanna ski Beartooth Pass this Sunday?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My wife and I will be skiing this snowfield at about 11:00am this coming Sunday (September 28, 2008). It's at most a 20-minute hike from the summit of the pass. It's supposed to be a gorgeous fall day.

Anybody want to join the party?

Looks like fun but it's a little too far from Memphis.
Are you still on your ski every month of the year schedule?

Are you heading down to Red Lodge for a beer afterwards?

Who wants to ski this Sunday?

I DO! I DO!


Wait, where is this again? What's that you say? I can't drive there from Boston on Sunday morning?

Tease!

I'd love to, but I think that I will be skiing James Peak instead (awaiting a TR on conditions from a friend who is heading up there tomorrow). Bob, is this the start of your bar mitzvah TAY season?

Been there - done that .

I hope the drive times are a bit less than last year .

Still trudging along. Assuming I get it done on Sunday, that will make month #132 (eleven years).

That is most definitely the plan. Do you have any suggestions for a place to go? I'm not real familiar with downtown Red Lodge.

You could drive, like, REALLY fast.

Good luck with the James Peak foray. I guess it hadn't occurred to me that this would be my bar mitzvah season. I'll use that one. What's kind of ironic about your note is that our trip over Beartooth is the beginning of a road trip that will culminate with us attending the Quinceanera celebration of one of my wife's nieces. I think that's sort of the Hispanic equivalent of a bat mitzvah?

No forest fires around this time. I think the drive should be considerably less, ummm, circuitous.

Bob -

I make it to Red Lodge about every other year. The best luck I've had for food is at the Bridger Creek Backcountry Kitchen & Wine Bar (talk about an oxymoron for a name) at 116 S Broadway, right in the middle of town. Red Lodge Ales, at 417 N Broadway....the far end of town, has a tasting room open from 4:00 to 8:00 daily. They make a very good hefeweizen.....I haven't tried their other ales.

There are numerous aspen groves on your way down into town, some of which should be turning their fall colors. Take your camera along.

Sorry, Bob, can't make it, Sunday is footie, aka "soccer", (for my daughter's team and the team which I coach) in Bozeman.

Have a great outing and I look forward to seeing the pics.

Thanks, Rio. We may try both of those places.

I hope she scores three goals and your team wins.

Pics of the Pass will be posted.

so how was it?

Hi Bob- considering the conditions today, it would have been worth the drive to WY to get my September turns. I ended up having a number of things to do around the house and got a late start, so instead of James Peak or Rollins Pass I decided to chance St Mary's Glacier instead. Bad choice. Lots of skiers and boarders (someone set up a little terrain park at the top), but conditions were just horrific- giant icy sun cups covered in dirt washed in by the last storm. One couldn't even skin up because there was no way that the skins would have had any purchase. I took one run, probably a few dozen very clumsy turns and called it a day. Nice hike, however, and Spencer the ski dog had fun playing with some new found friends and wading in the lake. Month 47 is in the bag, and it should be easy from here on through July! (sorry no pictures- I forgot the camera).
