November storm

Bike riding in the snow. Bozeman, MT
It's not unusual to get snow this time of year in Montana, but this much snow is a bit of a surprise. Que pasa, El Nino?

As of 2 p.m. Thursday, Bridger reported 15 inches of new snow over a base of 33 inches at the top of the Bridger lift, Wales said. The mountain is scheduled to open Dec. 11.

I suspect that same storm is about to dump on the central Rockies this weekend. Actually 2 back-to-back fronts are blowing through, with double digit inches expected. Wahoo!
Skiing tomorrow!

 I was wondering the same thing.  Perhaps we should have and ESA Tune up at Big Sky and a later season event at Stowe, eh?

Bridger sure knows how to dish out the powder!
Heck, lets just all head to Bridger on a whim!

Joan, you guys are lucky -- most of the snow seems to be going north.  We might get a bit of a dusting here this weekend, but still need lots to really get things going.  Our 2.5 feet of a couple of weeks ago was almost completely confined to the plains, with only a bit in the mountains where we need it.

Please, purty pleeze, might you send some down here?

Mike

Just got back from Mt. Baker and it looks like mid-winter.  The snow was dumping down and there was about 70" of base.

Just shy of 2' in my yard in Gateway. I heard that Big Sky didn't fair as well. the mountains to the south of here sure look like they got plenty.

joan my respect for you went up a couple notches

snow MTBing is so much fun and the right thing to do with limited base. :)

not that ill be going to an ESA but Big Sky is has pretty bad rocks and not that much snow making. Early season Abasin, loveland, solitude or alta would be better bets IMO. Grand Targhee would most likely be the best bet.

Don't feel too bad.  Crystal MT was sunny Thursday and the pow was all tracked out unless you went hiking for it.  Only about a 30' base, and there was nobody there.  Even worse scratched up my rock skis. 

 

You guys will get yours soon.

That's not me on the bike--it's a photo from this morning's Bozeman Chronicle. On the news last night they showed a guy riding his unicycle in the snow--now there's a feat! Seriously, it would have been pretty tough riding with all the unplowed snow--we had 24" at least at our place and the side streets were unplowed. Excuses, excuses.

I was momentarily pleased that your opinion of me went up BWP.
