SkiZer’s final day in Montana led him to Lost Trail Powder Mountain.
This ski area high in the Bitterroots on the Idaho border has some great old-school skiing. The day started with about five inches new of fluffy, cold snow — a great way to see a new ski resort.
It was also SkiZer’s incredible luck to run into Alec McNeill of Missoula, who showed him around for most of the day. The two met in line as the day started, and McNeill turned out to be a jovial host who made sure SkiZer found his way at Lost Trail.
The day started with some powder turns on Chair 1, then we headed to the open terrain of Chair 4. The best skiing was done in some double-diamond bowls: Hollywood Bowl and Shark Fin.
