Single, You'll just have to choose which fest you want to go to. Planning can't always be perfect. SamH.. if this goes down.. we could meet at the Butte south bound, and ride share??

Yeah, that should probably work. I've got a buddy who lives in Ketchum that I'm going to see in a couple weeks but I see no reason not to head down there twice this winter. There is some awesome terrain in those parts and I'm stoked to do more exploring there.

Not sure if anyone might be interested but the Fairfield, Craters of the Moon areas nearby offer some of the most epic snowkite terrain in the world provided there's good coverage. I have some extra gear and could probably coax my local dealer buddies to consign some more surplus to the cause if folks want to give it a try. By April coverage could be very iffy in the spots I'm talking about but.......................

Who knows - with the season we're having, April might be spectacular!

In.

I can imagine there would be several others from the Hole who would make the short jaunt as well. Please post details soon.

I just saw this thread, didn't realize the wheels were in motion. The Smith house at Smiley Creek sleeps 18, I think that would max out the amount of people we'd want up in the zone. April is the month, any input on which weekend? Can we call it a Backcountry snowboard fest? :wink:
The prospecting Idaho zone is a 10 mile sled ride in, but for those who just want to hike there are plenty of tours you can do right from the house. I've never planed one of these things, only knowing people from the internet seems a bit dicey but i'm down to give it a go and help spread the Idaho stoke. Lets see which weekend works best for those of you who chime-in here and we'll go from there.

Please let me know your ideal dates...

I'm sure I could rustle up a few Bellinghamsters for the trip.

I was just gauging interest Idarado, didn't mean to elude it was in stone yet. Looks like there's interest tho. :)

For some reason I thought the house slept more. How many people do the yurts sleep? Might not work to have the groups that far apart tho?

I'll hit you on email soon

Remember when you let those wacky snowskaters stay at the house?? :lol: can't wait to get down there again, looks like a bit of snow on the way too.
