We decided to go for a hike last night at 7:30pm. A little over a hour later we were standing at the top of Glacier View which allowed us to see all of the way into Canada, most of Glacier National Park, the Flathead Valley and a good portion of Flathead Lake. Only in Montana.
Throwing it back to two weekends ago when we strapped our skis to our packs, road our bikes up Going to the Sun Road and skied off the top of Logan Pass.
With fresh snow this week in Glacier round two might be coming up this weekend.
Great view from the top of Big Mountain after a stout climb.
Chances are, you learned how to ski at a small mom-and-pop ski area. Or so says the Community Ski Area Survey, which interviewed 1,400 people at the end of March to better understand the role small ski areas play in the ski industry and in the lives of avid skiers.
I grew up skiing at Sitzmark Ski Area, just outside of my hometown of Tonasket, Washington. Haven’t heard of it? I’m not surprised. The 800 vertical feet (being generous) accessed by it’s old, rickety double chair and rope tow don’t attract a lot of attention. But it holds special meaning for me and countless other folks from Okanogan County. It had soul. It had personality. It had character.
I’m not a beach guy. Never have been. But there’s something special about the beach and the coast. It’s never the same. It’s always changing. It relaxes you and helps you see things differently like no other place can. Throwing it back to the good times had with family and friends this past weekend on the Oregon Coast.
Not bad, Oregon. Not bad at all.
First road ride of the season. First road ride up Little Cottonwood. Go Little or go home, right?
Damn right we hit the trails during the Salomon Outdoor sales meeting.
