He’s like a superhero on skis. Well, at least the faster-than-the-speeding-bullet part.
There’s all kinds of ways to travel to the top of a mountain: chairlift, skinning, snowshoeing, jet pack… wait, jet pack?
This is obviously not for everyone. Troy Hartman is a professional stuntman who enjoys skydiving and bungee jumping. The personal jet pack was made for [...]
What’s almost better than a pot of gold? Twelve inches of new snow!
Lost Trail opened on St. Patrick’s Day with a foot of new snow. Plus, today the mountain is offering 2-for-1 day lift tickets today. Don’t forget to wear your green snowsuit!
Check out a video shot by Lost Trail’s Will Moss on Saturday at the [...]
Time to stop talking the talk and start walking the walk.
You think you can ski a lot of vertical feet? You scoff at any run that doesn’t start at the top and end at the lodge? It’s time to PROVE IT!
This Sunday is the inaugural Vertical Challenge at Snowbowl. Teams of two will compete to see [...]
The Missoulian ran an outdoors story today listing 25 reasons to love spring skiing.
But the list hardly ends there!
Tell us what you love about spring skiing! Maybe there’s one on this list or maybe there’s something else you love about spring skiing.
Here’s what I love about spring skiing:
Forget goggles. Go for the sunglasses!
Those brave souls [...]
This would seem like an obvious no-no. Alas…
The Montana Snowbowl patrol in a post on the group’s blog yesterday warned skiers and snowboarders against jumping off the chairlift. The post stemmed from Saturday when Snowbowl’s Grizzly chairlift broke down for more than an hour and patrol had to perform rope evacuations.
Apparently a father/son duo decided to [...]

In case you missed Sunday’s Missoulian story on Snowbowl’s EIS, which is now out for public comment, I’m posting it again here.
Here are some [...]
I had friends ski Lookout Pass today. They said media were crawling on the mountain, which was cited as having received the most snow on the planet this week. And remember that the mountain was closed yesterday — new spring hours in March — which made today, I hear, even more sick!
I don’t know if this [...]
Here’s the story I wrote for today’s Missoulian on the release of the draft environmental impact statement for Snowbowl’s expansion plans. The expansion to the west of the resort on TV Mountain will nearly double the ski area’s size.
The Lolo National Forest hasn’t gotten the document uploaded to its website yet, but I should be getting [...]
The Missoulian received a “cease and desist” letter recently from Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation asking that the newspaper never use the term Champagne Powder TM (snow) in any story ever again because the ski resort trademarked the phrase. The term appeared recently in a Missoulian weather story.
(Pause for rolling of the eyes)
Does this sound familiar?
This is soooo Missoula.
There’s sure to be some stiff competition at this relay race because if there are two things that folks in Missoula are good at it’s skiing and drinking.
It’s a team relay race that involves skiing, skinning/snowshoeing/xc skiing, snowboarding and drinking beer.
Faceplant, no less. I’d be sure to face plant if guzzling Faceplant.
