The storms have finally ended.  It snowed 13 days in a row in our advisory area, a pretty sweet system that dropped over 6 feet of snow outside Cooke City.  I was there last Sunday and had the throttle pinned to get anywhere.  The snowpack is getting stronger by the day.  With high pressure settling over Montana bringing sunny skies the backcountry riding and skiing will be great.

Although the avalanche danger is trending downward, if you head out into the backcountry check the most up-to-date weather and avalanche information at mtavalanche.com. Photo of Republic Peak outside Cooke City by Jay Pape.
