I got the email from the horse's mouth this afternoon (Big Sky Marketing Department, that is) so you know it's true....Big Sky Resort is set to open their ski season on Thanksgiving Day, November 28th.
I generally opt out of the season pass each year and instead try to hit up all the special ticket price days at Bridger Bowl, Big Sky, and Moonlight. Cheap ticket days paired with full priced great powder days equals a great season for me! From Turkey for a Ticket day to MSU Bobcat Day, I've compiled the dates to mark on your calendars for lift ticket deals this ski/ride season.
Biggest skiing in America is getting even bigger! Big Sky Resort is expanding its gladed tree runs by adding five new ski trails with 20+ acres of new terrain that will open on Andesite Mountain for the 2011/2012 winter season.
Skiing up hill. Yes, you read correctly - skiing up hill. That's a new thought in my noggin. It kind of goes against everything your body feels and your brain thinks. But that's what you do in backcountry snowboarding. OK - so not only do I have to learn how to ski, I have to do it uphill. Hmm.
The creme of the crop for Backcountry Snowboarding Bindings are the Spark R&D Blaze Snowboard Bindings. The wonder gadgets are the piece that makes the whole splitboard system work. They work for cross country skiing into your location, and are what makes your board stiff enough to be able to ride it once you attach it back together to snowboard down the mountain. These bindings rock – and I now own them (enter in the jumping up down here).
