The Blog is on Vacation

I rarely get on here to update this thing anymore so if you are looking for any information regarding the Montana Snowbowl Ski Patrol and this is way out of date, please check in with us at our website

Summer has been hot and smoky!  Hope you have been doing your snow dance.  See you on the hill...

Here We Go!!

Just got word that the Griz chair is going to run Tomorrow and Sunday!  Remember, early season conditions will exist; please respect any and all closures.  Also, this probably is not the weekend to go ride on that brand new pair of skis or brand new board; let Ullr bless us with a bit more of the white fluff first.

See you out there!

Let the fun begin!

Lookout Pass is open today and this is a look at their conditions.

Lost Trail is reporting 15" of snow on the ground, Discovery says they have 12" on the ground up top and 8" at the base, and Snowbowl is reporting 14"up top and 8" at the base.

I also got word that Lolo Pass has some skiable spots (24" on the beargrass) that may be worth checking out too. As always, ski and ride with care; early season conditions are in full effect!

Winter is coming fast.

Looks like Mother Nature is serving up a big heaping load of early season snow for us here in west central Montana. SNOTEL sites are recording in the double digits:

Remember, if it's steep enough and deep enough to ski, it can avalanche!

Please be aware during these early winter months. Now would be a great time to look into taking an avalanche class to learn something new or to refresh what you may already know. We all get a bit rusty during the off-season.
