Remember how sweet it was turning 16 years old?
Well, let me tell you what is sweeter: Skiing all 16 ski areas in the Treasure State in 16 days. WAY SWEEEEEEEETer!
That’s what Cory Birkenbuel, a 33-year-old University of Montana Western student, is about to do. Starting on Jan. 1 in Big Sky and ending Jan. 16 at Maverick Mountain, Birkenbuel and Montana State University film student Kevin Hilton will film their trip, producing a documentary film, which will promote skiing in Montana.
I, too, will be in Big Sky for New Years, so we’ll see if I can catch up with the dynamite duo for some runs. Check out the “Montana Sweet 16” Facebook page for updates on their trip and their full itinerary. They are encouraging people in the local communities to meet them on the hill!
