Looking at Gallatin Peak yesterday (3/14) from the top of Bear Basin. Super warm out there, felt like I should be shredding in t-shirt and shorts. By the way, anyone knows if there's a cabin at the base of Gallatin, or was it a big ass rock?

Here's a few photos from Hyalite on Saturday. Things froze hard were locked up good 'n solid all day long. We found challenging surface conditions but a had fun day out anyway. I expected to see lots of wetslide debris on the sunnier aspects from the warmer days earlier in the week, but saw very little save some pinwheels and a cornice drop or two.

Was out around Cooke City last weekend and had absolutely perfect conditions. Upper 8" skiing incredibly soft with no layers of concern. Some windloading to true N aspects that caused a couple of naturals, but we rode all other aspects and experienced pretty much "green light" conditions. Looks like it's going to be a pretty good spring around these parts! Psyched.

Tracks of the master, who of course beat us to it:

But plenty of room for our tracks too:

Once things re-freeze up high, should be game on again! Snow levels are looking really good up high!

Hope you all are planning Beartooth trips this spring... I think the snowpack is going to be excellent. Weathered a decent sized storm that garnered about a foot of new snow up high (with a lot more on the loaded N aspects) over the weekend. Post-kitchen excavation:
