Beartooth Pass Skiing (did not happen-too much snow)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

We tried to get up to BT Pass for some laps on the Gardiner Headwall and finish up on the Poma at the International Race and Ski Camp last weekend, but were thwarted by gate closures on the Highway due to 1-2 feet of new-hopefully this weekend will be more productive

 

The Billings Gazette recently ran a strory on the camp etc-which is opened to the public on a daily basis

1000  verts of good terrain

This place needs your support-come on out if you can-approx 2 hours south of Billings

We are headed up there today for 9 days.  We have a small camp of racers and hope to take advantage of the proximity to us (Utah) vs. driving to Hood.  I have skied along Beartooth pass before, just not at the Twin Lakes headwall with the Poma lifts.

 

The new snow sounds great, but I would prefer clear & cold nights so they can groom in the evening and let it set up for the next day.

 

I will provide an update either during or after the camp with the details.

How was it?

I was up there again this past weekend and there was some Utah folk present-most likely saw you guys

 

I thought the snow was pretty decent for June (better than the weekend before)..and Chute 1 and 2 were corned up pretty well--very fun day on Sat (6/20) till the T-storms chased us off the hill

 

Mogul camp had a pretty good bump line by the looks of it-the weather that week was kind of warm and unsettled-hopefully the snow set up enough for your training

Yep - it was us you saw.  In fact, one of your pic's has us standing at the top of the chute waiting to drop in (see other thread www.epicski.com/forum/thread/84498/beartooth-pass-6-13-2009).

 

The snow was as good as can be expected for June - firm in the mornings and soft corn by lunch.

 

The mogul skiers were a hoot to watch while riding the Poma - some of them were awesome.  Their coach said that the run they were on (skiers right of Poma #1) is probably the best slope for summer training in North America.
