Lost Trail Powder Mountain is another great one. Half in ID half in MT. I lucked out and they had a steak dinner fund raiser while I was there. No agro dickheads to deal with either.

If any of you FF's are in the area, look for us.I'll be the old guy in a blue jacket and blue plaid pants trying to keep up with my adult daughter.

Avalanche Lees Peak


Submitted by Contributing Observer on Sat, 2014-02-15 15:42
Type of Report Location
Report of observed avalanche activity
Anthony Lakes Area
Observer name Type of Reporter
Max Forgensi Contributing Observer
Mode of Travel:
Ski (Mountaineering AT, Tele etc)

Red Flags:
Recent avalanche activity
Roller balls
Rapid loading
Observed blowing snow


Report: Huge SS-N-R4D3-WI-G on north face of Lees Peak. 1/4 mile wide, average crown 60 cm up to 20' crown height. Started mid slope and covered entire looker left cliff area to saddle with Lakes Lookout Peak. North aspect. Stability tests at 7500' gleaned moderate shears 35 cm down below zipper crust layer. Upside down snow pack. Plenty of energy for avalanches to propagate long distances. I would avoid any large pieces of snow at tree line in the Elkhorns til the snow pack can heal

Skied there a couple of days about 5 or so years ago, staying with friends a short drive away in Sula. Love that place! Now THAT is a small town, when you're here you're family, kind of vibe.

Have also ripped through the curves on the way up and down the hill a few times during warmer months......

Phil, I appreciate the concern.We've never skied there, and figured a guided trip would be the best way to figure the place out.Does anyone have any feedback on the Anthony Lakes guides? I would imagine they will be pretty conservative in light of the snowpack and recent events.Any tips on skiing the resort to find the "goods" inbounds?

I've skied there,too. It's great. Lost Trail is also a short distance from the east end of the Magruder on the way into Montana adventure riding.

How do you get photos of such nice pow without an army of gapers screwing it up?

Neighbor Leo and I skied Meadows Saturday and it was a zoo. Pow was mostly windblown and hard in the morning but warmed up and got soft around 10:30 so we skied the bowls and rode the Blue chair. Not sure if riding Blue was any faster than standing in line for the high speed but at least we weren't standing in line

Bachelor was PACKED with gapers - we just stood waiting for about 45 minutes at the bottom of Outback until they gave the open signal for NWE. Total Chinese downhill to the bottom of NWE but we out-skated all the snowboarders and were waxed up for speed. It only took about 4 runs to lay waste to all that pow!

Nothing like skiing with Brother Leo!


A little experiment in the lower flats last wednesday with the G-15:
