Deep thoughts by Big Dave**:

11:00am The winds have died down and the sun is starting to warm things up. The views and corduroy are top notch right now. What a great day to be in the mountains!

8:00am Grab your camera and neck gaiter as you head out the door this morning. There isn't a cloud in the sky which means the views into Glacier National Park should be incredible today.

6:00am Today is the last chance to make turns in February and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day on The Big Mountain. The winds are blowing 15mph out of the North right now so be sure to bundle up for a chilly ride up Chair 1 first thing this morning. We are expected sunshine and temperatures  to climb into the low 20's by the afternoon.

The corduroy will be fantastic once again when you get here today. The crew was busy last night leaving behind over 45 runs with a fresh new surface on them. Ptarmigan Bowl, The Chute, Moose, Larch, Corkscrew, and Middle Fork were Just a few extras that were groomed last night.

Off groomed is skiing about the same so ski in control, pay attention, and utilize the bright sunshine as you negotiate the firm conditions. Today we will host The Smoking Aces Freestyle Tour with a Slopestyle Competition in the Fishbowl. The New Armory line is in and the park is in the best shape of the season.

Enjoy The Weekend! Big Dave

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
