People are not exaggerating when they call Montana "Big Sky Country." With more open sky than we who live in ski towns are used to, protruding mountains in every direction and an "old west" type vibe still lingering in the air, Montana is, and always will be one of the last great frontiers.
We were treated to 3 days of skiing, one of which was a guided day with our wonderful contact, and guide for Big Sky, Kipp Proctor. Thanks for showing us around Kipp! Although I grew up in Montana, Big Sky has so much terrain to offer I had almost forgotten where all the good stuff to ride was. We were very fortunate to have Kipp showing us around and helping us setup a plan for what would be good to shoot on.
It had snowed a few days prior to our arrival, and we were lucky to find some powder stashes off the tram, Sledhorn, and Dakota lifts. I can't reiterate enough how amazing the terrain inbounds is; I haven't done that technical of riding in what felt like years, and it was great to get out of the park and test my limits on some steep chutes, rock cliffs, and big, big, bowls. After a great day of scoping the terrain we were excited to get out on our own for the next couple of days.
