Lolo Pass 12-29-07

Sometimes things just work out perfectly. Storms had been pounding Western Montana and Idaho for the past few weeks. I called up Steve and suggested that we go make sure the snow was okay, we didn't want it to go unused.

Steve and I got up there at about 8:30am. At the parking lot the berms were huge and we picked up the old skin trail with about 8" of fresh. The snow quickly got deeper as we climbed. As we came up towards the bowl it was thigh deep breaking up on old skin track to the top of Pillows.

Snow was probably 6%, blower for Lolo. Carver was along for the ride and was doing well with his booties on. We skied from the very top down the gut and over to the right of it; There was probably 24” of new about thigh to waist deep; On the steeps it was coming up over your shoulders, face shots for sure; Then after that did one run on the mellow regen run and then we headed out; the lower trees below the road was really really good; Snowed hard on us all day long; temp was 20

Here's the video that I put together.
