you make the trip ill show you around.

No easy access from mt passes like you have in CO. Get ready for a slog. The fairy lake area (from the video) is a four mile skin in on the road before you get to anything moderately steep once they close the gate. (gates still open this time of year making it a bit of a gangbang) Another two miles to get to some lines. Seems like most zones require atleast a three mile flat slog. The trail heads are close to town, with in 15 miles, so you spend your time hiking instead of driving.

unless your talking cooke city..aka..heaven

skipped the season pass this year and bought a cheap sled to get out to the steeps quicker. Working on a dynafit soft boot and kicker skin set up to make flats go a little quicker.
