Seems like there's a decent amount of Bozeman riders here. Just trying to see who else is out there. Besides my buddies Mark and Tyler, I tour completely with skiers. Obviously still fun, but it'd also be fun to get out with other splitters.
Anyway, I'm around all winter and beyond, unemployed right now except for a couple odd days of helping buddies out on building projects. Years of experience in the mountains around Bozeman and Jackson. With the semi-fucked snowpack, I've been riding Bridger daily. Anyway, speak up if you're from Bozeman!

Today's avalanche report started to sound promising again though.

Quote:
It's a whole different world in the Bridger and northern Gallatin Ranges. These mountains are getting skied and snowmobiled with very few reports of instability. Folks skied steep slopes on Bridger Peak yesterday after evaluating the slope. As time passes it's becoming harder to trigger avalanches. Although signs are pointing to continued strengthening, the snowpack still demands respect since sugary facets are underlying stiffer slabs.


My roommate and I are both splitboarders. I'm into my second year and he's on his first. We both have full avalanche safety gear and are promoters of a safety-first style.

Probably be on a bridger boundary patrol tomorrow (thursday)...looks like it may snow again this weekend. The facet rubber band will likely begin to stretch again with the new snow. I usually park at the fairground and thumb it up so I could meet there if interested.

I'm stoked to get some fresh out there even if it means putting up with the extra stress.
