Deep thoughts by Erick**:

11:15am Wow what a fun day so far! This is exactly the kind of snow we needed to get. Big Mountain creamy goodness! Covering lots of things up and filling in! The visibility has been in and out this morning, and snow continues to fall at the Summit and Flower Point. The views in the Village of the valley were beautiful. It looks like more on the way today. With the entire Front Side of the mountain open, it seems like endless terrain options!

8:05am The visibility has been reduced as the temps have come up. Still have some light snow falling in the village, and lots of fresh turns to get! Hurry and get in line!

7:00am After a conference with Patrol, you can expect to see the new snowpack resemble more along the lines of 8 inches of new, as settling in the new snow has been occuring.. It is still going to ski super well. Confidence is high for a fun factor of 11 today!

6:00am A day bettrer than Christmas!! 12 inches new overnight at the Summit AND today the Front of the mountain will open! Thats right! All the goods you've been waiting for!

Yesterday Patrol opened the lower Toni Matt area in the afternoon, and the skiing was great. Today we get it all!

As you charge into all the newly opened terrain, please ride with care as early season conditions still prevail, however, that should nothing to lessen your magnitude of smiles!

The Grooming team has been working all night trying to keep up with Mother Natures terms of engagment, and have been grooming all over the mountain. However, It has been snowing hard, so there is a predominant cover of powder snow almost everywhere.

Deep, White, Montana goodness!

Yeee-Haaaw!!!!! The day we have all been waiting for all season!

For the most "corduroy like" grooming conditions this morning, I would Check out Whitetail, Caribou, and Goat Haunt, as they will most likely have the most recent corduroy coverage. Otherwise it looks like we are in for some powder skiing today!

It looks like it may warm up a bit this morning, and perhaps get a bit wet, and then cool off again, so come up for your freshies early and see what happens. More snow is expected throught the day, before and after, and most likely during, the brief warm up. Overall it seem like a stellar day is upon us!

You do not want to miss this day!

A day better than Christmas!! So Stoked!

Ski ya out there!

Treewell Safety

Skiing and snowboarding off the groomed runs and in deep powder snow is one of the most exciting and appealing parts of our sport. If you decide to leave the groomed trails, you are voluntarily accepting the risk of falling into tree wells or deep snow and suffocating.

A deep snow or tree well accident occurs when a rider or skier falls into an area of deep unconsolidated snow and becomes immobilized. The more the person struggles, the more entrapped in the snow they become. Deaths resulting from these kinds of accidents are referred to as a NARSID or Non-Avalanche Related Snow Immersion Death. Fortunately, these types of accidents are preventable.

1. Avoid Deep Snow & Tree Areas
2. Always Ski with a Partner and Keep Your Partner in Sight
3. Ski & Ride in Control and Defensively
4. Have a Plan to Survive
