Two weeks from today I will be driving across Idaho on my way to Big Sky Resort. As many of you know I am a powder junkie - not the bad type of powder, but the cool powder that falls upon the slopes of the Rocky Mountains. I will be skiing Big Sky on Monday March 8th and Tuesday March 9th.
The mountain at Big Sky is one of the best out West for several reasons. It is by no means the oldest ski destination west of the Mississippi, as it opened for business in 1973. The resort was the brainchild of Chet Huntley, the deceased NBC nightly news announcer. He came up with the idea and was a key player in making Big Sky a reality instead of a dream. Skiing magazine lists Big Sky as the 7th best ski resort in the USA.
I urge you to call in sick to work or burn up a few of your vacation days to come out and ski with me. Late winter snow conditions can be fabulous at Big Sky and I doubt there will be anyone at the bottom of each run watching the bull wheel spin at the lifts. After all, Big Sky has 3,500 acres. That is one enormous place to ski.
If you want to meet me at the base of the hill, you better email me soon so we can hook up. Do you need lessons or equipment? Neither are a problem. Big Sky has those and much, much more. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
