Taking and Receiving

Some current work by Z

The storms around Bozeman have been infrequent at best. This is how January can be in Bozeman. Its often best not to check the snow amounts in Cooke City at this time. That is a sure way to madness. I got down to the Hebgen Lake area (aka The Chicken Shack) three times in the course of 7 days last week. West Yellowstone has been getting hit consistently with moderate snowfall. Adding that with cooler temps and little wind and some sweet, sweet powder skiing is on reserve.

We choose to return to a pocket south of the Sanchez Bowl that I call the Trident. Very little traffic and the best fall-lines in the entire zone. All you have to pay is a steep and stout 1800' final skin that can be repeated numerous time and a track is never crossed.

Ending the Month

Life continues to impress. I'm doing my best at being a jobless skier this winter while maintaining a steady stream of application and resume spraying. Plenty of obscenely beautiful days have been collected already.

The idea for a trip to Cooke City has emerged. That damn place is continually getting plowed by storms that don't even scratch Bozeman. Engaging search for a dog-sitter.

Ski Powder.

Things are looking up for the camera to be taken out soon.
