Sometimes, something beautiful happens in this world…
In some cases that may mean falling in love, getting your dream job, or finding out that you didn’t actually break your back when you smoke a tree at 30 miles an hour… On that note, the term Sunday Funday has a lot more credibility when the beauty of 2,500 foot faces littered with pillows, cliffs, and 2 feet of fresh are all of the sudden staring you in the face.
SW Montana can have a tough time staying consistent as far as snowpack goes. The Bridgers can get pretty bad, pretty quickly, when 90 mph winds pillage any new snow that may have fallen in previous storms. Gallatin Range, same thing… And don’t get me started on the Crazies…. But fortunately, with a little exploring, some serious vert, and a couple hours trying to keep 4 wheels between the lines, something beautiful indeed, can happen.
A strong trio and a good sense of the terrain, Meg, Ryan and I cranked our way up switchbacks, through Cascade-esque pillows, perfectly spaced pines, and dozens of photo worthy cliffs. It’s always a pleasure skiing with new people and I was stoked to get to be a part of a shoot with a very talented photog. Check out Meg’s work at http://www.meghaywoodsullivan.com/
Sunday Funday, go get it my friends….
