1/24/2015 10:43:27 PM you'll love it! and it's actually an area that actually has been getting snow this year, which seems really hard to come by. hit up whistler for new years, which had little snow and mammoth mlk, which was the worse i have even seen a resort out west. big sky and moonlight basin are now one resort so it's HUGE. you can spend 3 days easily exploring. Then there's Bridger bowl nearer to bozeman, which has a grand targhee feel. locals mountain, smaller, but empty and tons of good snow. something worth mentioning is big sky/bridger probably have the most in bounds backcountry runs in the US. you'll need a beacon, probe, shovel and partner to hit up some of the gnarly terrain in big sky and the deep stuff on the backside of bridger. enjoy!!!
2/6/2014 9:06:35 PM damn that's a great price spenser! too bad i moved to NC for 2 years or else i would prob get the charlie 58. bought a charlie 54 for my wife, she never used it and it's still in the plastic!
1/29/2014 7:18:44 PM good looking out JD. liftopia doesn't have any deals now and i'll keep an eye on the big sky website too. BTW, I did call Big Sky and North Summit Snowfields hasn't been open all year and doesn't look like it will be. Wind plus a HUGE avalanche apparently stripped the top of lone peak. that was disappointing news... So, if you guys have advice on good terrain and runs/trails that is can't miss, I would greatly appreciate it too.
1/27/2014 7:44:54 PM yeah that's exactly what i'm hoping for...another 3.5 weeks before i go so should be sweet. actually considering now heading out a day earlier to i have 4 days of big sky and that way ensures i get bridger bowl in too. although honestly, i have never done 4 days straight. not sure my legs could handle it... also do you guys know of any lift ticket deals? now that big sky and moonlight are one, the lift ticket price has skyrocketed. $99/day. we still have our college ids (don't ask how old we are) but they should work. another option is the group sales. i'll call them to check that out tomorrow.
1/26/2014 10:25:47 AM have either of you guys been out to big sky or bridger bowl this year? i spoke with the folks who work up at big sky and have been checking the lift reports and north summit snowfields hasn't been open all year and a-z chutes and the big coulior have been closed every recently. just wondering how much snow they actually need or it's going to be open all year. they have been getting a lot of snow all year, but heard they with the wind it tends to blow everything off the top. will be out there in 4 weeks so would be extremely disappointed if those weren't open!
1/23/2014 7:13:04 PM thanks for the pointers guys! i'll definitely stop by world boards since i always want to support local shops. outside of the terrain advice, which i am very grateful for, any suggestions for restaurants and bars in big sky? or a good lunch place in bozeman for when we land? MT, i'll def hit you up if i have other specific questions. and i also owe you some photos from my sledding excursion out to jackson hole last year.
1/22/2014 8:12:03 PM i had no idea that bridger bowl was that close to bozeman. damn, had i known i would have stayed in bozeman for a night before heading up to big sky. i'm not sure the group will want to hit up bridger and we only have 3 days of boarding. you think that we can do big sky and moonlight in 2 days? i'm use to big mountains after calling squaw home for 3 years, but this seems like a different animal. although if there are minimal lift lines we might be able to get through fast... bridger bowl looks pretty damn gnarly from the trail map though...worth it you think?
1/21/2014 10:16:53 PM Has anyone on here hit up Big Sky or Moonlight Basin? There are combined for the first time this year so you have access to over 5300 acres with one lift ticket! I'll be out there in about a month and am looking for any insights and advice on how best to navigate the mountain and what areas to hit. We're an advanced group of boarders and some of us including yours truly are looking for wide open bowls and tree runs and don't mind hiking. In fact, prefer it to get the good stuff. We all have avy gear too so anything goes.
3/22/2013 9:05:40 PM witty, yeah we barely left the sleds. and if you've never handled them before, they can be quite a handful. i ride motorcycles and have ridden jet skis/waverunners before and these take a lot more effort. we ended up hiking up and doing 3 runs in some knee deep powder, which was fun. promise more pics soon!
3/22/2013 9:05:25 AM JB, i'm not going to lie, it wasn't cheap, but in comparison spending $100 on a lift ticket to JHMR, it wasn't that bad. wife paid for everything as an early birthday present. it ended up costing about $175/pp with rentals, gas for sled and car. what can i say i have the best wife ever!
3/21/2013 11:56:24 PM sorry it's taken so long to post something. been writing my dissertation and trying to graduate, so you know...got a little distracted. here are some photos of our day 3, sled rentals and togwotee pass. such a great time! A nice view of how WIDE open the powder fields are! Another view there was just SO much fresh snow! i'll load more when i have more time b/c this file loader app on here really sucks. it's been giving me errors left and right and i just don't have time to mess with them right now. sorry guys. consider it a sneak peek. more to come later!
3/21/2013 11:42:09 PM yeah wife and i saw the drop right on top of the gondola but opted to go further up to casper, which was a much longer run so glad we did it. i'm really impressed with jackson hole as a vacation destination, and if it wasn't so damn much to fly there (lucky we used miles), we would definitely do it again. there's just so much to do outside of the JHMR. 
3/15/2013 3:41:33 PM tried to post some pics, but forgot the site doesn't take large format so i have to reduce everything. no time to do it now, but will to do that over the weekend
3/15/2013 3:34:33 PM cancel the search! the wife and i rented sleds and hit up the BC area of Togwotee Pass. One of the most exciting, exhilarating and nervous times of my life! We even brought our boards and got 3 BC runs in during our day. I highly suggest anyone do it if you have never done it before. SUPER fun and really affordable in Jackson!
3/15/2013 3:31:04 PM Wife and I had a BLAST in Jackson Hole. Didn't do Corbets or even saw it, but woulda like to. Did the hike up to Casper bowl and that took about an hour up and down so that took a lot of our day. Also started off in the Apres Vous area and not knowing the terrain got stuck on a traverse for a little while. The hike to Casper bowl was totally worth it as it was waist deep powder. As much as I have ever been in and I have been in DEEP days at Kirkwood. It was untouched too. but it was a LONG ASS haul to get up there. Day 2 was Targhee and totally worth it. Weather is really variable and it gets a lot of fog but the place was EMPTY. no more than maybe 100 people on the entire mountain. it was like a ghost town and TONS of snow too. Day 3 we rented sleds. One of the scariest and exhilarating things I have done. Bucket list, check. I have another thread on this so will post there! Overall, I would say perfect 3 days in JH. Stayed in Wilson and it was really a perfect central location to everything. Right b/t Jackson and JHMR and route 22 that takes you to Targhee. Wish we had 2-3 more days. Would have done JHMR again, and rented snowshoes or a splitboard and hiked up some of the easily accessible BC area.
