Good to hear. I had to do something else today. I need to make it up there tomorrow. I was up there a week after the first major storm of the season and was suprised at the amount of fresh areas. I am pretty jacked. If nothing else it has to be better than the snowbake at Tamarack two weekends ago.

How is the back side of Brundage? I was with a couple of beginner skiers so only hit a few of the blues with my buddy.

Sweet vid. I was joking a bit. It is a semi fresh foot. Best conditions I have been able to get to yet. Just need to make sure I get my ass out of bed. If everything goes as planned I will be up there right after open.

or go during the week when there are zero lift lines

as far as the backside goes, it is pretty fun, just like the rest of the resort its pretty much all glades and bowls and trees. It just didnt seem as intense as the front side. Its also not quite as steep as my liking, a few times i lost the fall line in the dense trees and ended up almost cutting across the hill instead of going down like i wanted. but when the trees get thick enough it can also be a bit disorienting. So i would certainly hit the backside to check it out, i still did 3 runs back there even though it wasnt as exciting as i hoped. i think the front is more fun. Especially hidden valley, i could probably spend my whole day back on that part of the hill.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

After the mountain closed yesterday due to insane winds, Schweitzer was absolutely incredible today. There was a 6-inch wind blown butter layer, which meant you could hall ass with total control. I've never ridden trees so hard and fast, today was easily in my top 2 best days of the season.

While the rest of the country has been hurting for snow, central and northern Idaho has been the place to be this year. The snow just keeps falling.

Why can't Brundage get dumped-on on a Friday? This midweek stuff is annoying. Damn'd work! Getting out both days this weekend. Hopefully forecast is correct and it continues to fall.

Silver's a cool mtn, but the main reason we went to Silver, was to ride powder at Peak Adventures Cat skiing, until the state of Idaho decided to not give them a permit to use the terrain that Steve, Terry and Scotty had been using with no problems for 16 years.

That was a yearly trip for us and doubt we'll ever come across a group of cat owners that loved riding powder as much as their customers. Steve left the number of runs up to you and your group. They guaranteed you at least 8, but we consistently were getting between 15 and 20, with no complaints from Steve or Scotty.

Anyways if you plan on staying in Kellogg, look up Kelloggvacationhomes.com, every time we went, we rent one of her houses. They're older homes but at $60-70 a night, hot tubs, sleeping 4-6, full kitchens, privacy (no crowded hotel) and within a mile drive. The last year we went the tram almost went over our roof and we could walk to the base lodge for beer and pizza

I had no idea they got shut down man =/

Peak has been on my bucket list for years...


Silver is a nice mountain tho...Lookout pass has the best snow, Schweitzer has the best terrain...silver is a nice mix of both. And it's super convenient. 40mins of freeway from my house to the gondola up.
