Now, that the holidays are over, the slopes are not NEAR as packed as they have been since opening for the season. If you are planning on hitting up the mountain in the next few days, you want to ensure you are making the trip worthwhile. Which means, you must have good snow conditions, and preferably, fresh powder. Check out the most up-to-date ski reports for western Montana and surrounding resorts, as of today, January 2.

The reports really don’t look that bad for this early in the season. I really hope Lost Trail plans on seeing more pow pow, because that is where I am planning on heading to this weekend. Stay warm and safe out there fellow snow bunnies!! Oh, and don’t forget to recite the “pow prayer” before hitting the hay tonight!

“Now I lay me down to bed, I pray the lord for pow to shred

And if it’s waist deep when I wake, epic lines I vow to take.”
