Like the title says, this thread is for everyone loosely based around the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, from the Wind Rivers to the Beartooths, Lander to Bozeman, Jackson to Billings (dln, I’m specifically calling you out to post your awesome photos on here :bow: ). I’m flying to California for a wedding on Thursday, but would love to see some photos of snowy alpine posted up on here if anyone makes it out!

I couldn’t make it unfortunately, but heard it was pretty tasty. October 7, 2013 at 5:14 pm #669726 samh 726 Posts @acopafeel wrote: yes, that was from the Albro snotel. I couldn’t make it unfortunately, but heard it was pretty tasty. Word from a friend who was out there was essentially, ‘…although there is six feet of snow at Albro there are also a lot of seven foot rocks.’ -- samh.net October 11, 2013 at 10:46 pm #669727 nordicbordn 225 Posts just got into town (bozeman) this week and am somewhat disturbed that our government will not be funding an avy center as of now.. avy 2 cant come soon enough! on another note, this means (fromwhat i hear) N. bridgers are free range, as all gates to fairy remain open.. travel wisely 😮 October 15, 2013 at 2:49 am #669728 acopafeel 134 Posts i got out yesterday to look at how things are holding up in the Tobacco Roots… i missed out on the dump last wknd and was trying to make up for it. ended up topping out at 9,300 when the 6-12′ of sugar was easily pushed off the bulletproff base. the zero visibility didnt help my attitude either 🙂 looking rather hoar-y out there. it will be interesting to see how the next 2 months treat the snowpack!

Bet it’s awesome. November 10, 2013 at 1:54 am #669735 boppingshoe 83 Posts went up to Bell Lake today. The road was clear. I didn’t dig a pit, but could definitely feel the rotten snow at the bottom. Didn’t bother to skin pass the lake, looked kinda wind affected. played around in the tree and it was fun. November 11, 2013 at 1:39 am #669736 greg.doctor 58 Posts Headed up to Bell lake today for a few turns. Stability was questionable so we stuck to lower angle below. Pit at 9,200 ft on NE aspect revealed 2-3inch nonreactive slab and a larger 40cm slab that sparked some concern. ECT P13 with Q2ish sheers. Rutschblock 5, again Q1-2 sheers. Surface layer is pretty heavy currently. Dug on a slope of about 35 degrees with somewhat significant windloading. 205 CM OF SNOW WHERE WE DUG….on November 10… Like someone said earlier there may be 6ft of snow in the T roots but there are plenty of 7 ft rocks.
