Turkey weekend skiing 2009

 We took advantage of snow and a few days off for Thanksgiving to get in some skiing.  

  • On "Turkey Day" we skinned up to Bradley's Meadow/Ramp with a large group (cowdog, Julie, Colleen, Steve, Suzi, Brian, Duke Brian M., and Greg).  
  • On Friday we skied the early season opening day (11/27/09) at Bridger Bowl, although nice also frustrating as everyone was funneled to one lift.  
  • On Saturday Julie and I skied with Collen and Steve and found a delightful 4 inches of fresh and more open lifts/terrain.  We ran into Derek and Erin and skied briefly with them. 
  • On Sunday, Brian and I hit the slopes.  Later that day I mounted some Freeride AT bindings for Derek, supporting his fall from tele grace into the darkside of AT.

Overall, a nice skiing weekend.  Some notes:

  • New skis for cowdog, 186 Volkl Gotamas mounted with Marker Baron AT bindings.  Great setup!
  • New skis for julie, 166 Rossignol Voodoo Pro BC 110 with Fritschi Freerides.  Yep, another great setup!
  • After this blast of skiing, cowdog has 13 ski days so far this season.

Two feet of snow Nov 12 equals skiing Nov 13

 A big storm brought almost 2 feet of snow to Bozeman on Nov 12th.  Taking advantage of this little treat, Greg and I headed up to Bridger Bowl to skin and ski.  Lots of people up there, skiing just about everything.
