This trip will be a weekender down to Whitefish Montana.  The event taking place will depend on border/Covid conditions with the hope that we can cross freely with proof of vaccination and safe conditions on both sides of the border.  If PCR tests are still required we will discuss as a group.  


Friday night/early Saturday morning - Head down to Whitefish.  We will plan to be at the resort at 9am on Saturday.  Keeners can come early and skin up the mountain for a pre-meeting lap.  We will ski the resort access backcountry (Canyon creek and area off Flower Point chair, Hellroaring, or other lift access backcountry) on Saturday (and probably finish with some Nachos at the Hellroaring pub!)  Participants will need a lift ticket for that day.  Whitefish sells loyalty cards for $50 that save $10 after your second ticket, and $30 a ticket from there (USD) to save on cost, or we can look for ski and stay packages to bring the price down.  Hang out in Whitefish/Kalispell on Saturday night, then either repeat the resort or head somewhere in Glacier National Park for some touring on Sunday.  If Covid conditions are safe for it, we can look at an air BnB or similar shared accomodations.  If not participants will need to arrange their own.  There are a variety of reasonably priced hotels and hostels in Whitefish and Kalispell. 

Minimum AST1 and some backcountry skiing/splitboarding experience is required.  The days won't be huge or fast, but expect to earn your turns.  If we haven't ridden together please email me a summary of your experience.
