Discount Ski Days at Big Sky, Bridger, and Moonlight

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.

Journey Into The Backcountry – Step 4

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.

Journey Into The Backcountry – Step 3

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).
