|Beartooth Basin, summer ski area. |
Can't get enough of this mountain air in my lungs!
So recently I went skiing! Can you believe it? Ya can't beat June in Montana. I enjoy getting out, & having adventures, & I absolutely love skiing. I went with a friend this past Thursday & Saturday - skied Beartooth Basin & Gardener Headwall. Here's some iPod photos!
|I skied trails 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, & 9 multiple times.|
This is a ticket office for Beartooth Basin. Parked just off the road, up top. $45 for a full day lift ticket. $35 for half day. $20 power hour. There is no shelter out here, other then this, & an outhouse. It's basically backcountry skiing, with lifts. At 10,900ft. the weather can change in an instant! While I was out here, the temperature was around 45'f, but later it dropped to 34'f & started spitting snow. (This pic by Jamie Schectman)

|The cornices were anywhere from 15ft. to 30ft. tall! |
This ski area has some amazing steep headwall & cornice skiing -
