It was a busy day with the bakery and snow plowing. The snowman was wonderful to us. We picked up 7-8 inches of snow. The dancing is working, keep it up. I plowed from 5 am to 3 pm. The snowman is calling for snow tomorrow but don't hold your breath. The next day for snow is Saturday and Sunday.

When booking reservations at the Super 8, don't forget to mention the snowest discount. If you don't, you won't save money.

I do fill avy bottles and rent and sell avy packs. Come in and check them out.

Morning from Bearclaw and the Super 8 motel. The snowman gave us lots of wind yesterday and we picked up about another 3 inches out of this storm.
The snowman is calling for another storm moving in Saturday through Tuesday.

AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: For today, the avalanche danger is rated MODERATE on all wind-loaded slopes and LOW on all others.

What's the riders been saying ?? Arms staying intact yet ?? The Abundance Cam being down sure has hurt my usual visual marks I have found around the cabin .

Morning from Cooke city. Sorry for not posting, been to meetings this week.
The snowman is calling for a foot of snow by Monday morning. Then it will be clearing for a few days. Then snow moving back in Thursday to Sunday.

The bakery is OPEN for the Season. Terri has a couple of new items to die for.

Don't forget to ask for the snowest discount when booking your room at the Super 8. You can save $$$.
The garage is open for you to work on your sleds or store them over night. You can borrow tools if you need some thing.
Hope to see you soon.

Snowy morning from Bearclaw and the Super 8. The snowman is coming through with his prediction. We've picked up 6 inches from yesterday till this morning. We could see another 3-4 inches by tonight.
Yes keep up the snow dance.

AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: Avalanches will mostly break directly below the new snow from last night and today, which will total over a foot of snow. Avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE.

I've had a few sleds use the garage yesterday. I would like to thank them.
Don't forget that I fill Avy bottles. Check my prices.
Hope every one is having a good weekend.

Thanks Christopher for sharing the picture and the link

Wow what a day Monday was. We picked up 12 + (Sunday and Monday)and I was able to get it all plowed and still make it to town to pick up supplies.
I would like to thank all those people that have helped with the snow dance. It worked well. We picked up another inch this morning. Keep up the good work and keep dancing.

The snowman is calling for a great chance of snow Thursday and Friday.
Everyone should be careful out on the mountain. Chances of avalanches are possible. Check out the Avalanche danger.

AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: Outside Cooke City there is a thin layer of weak snow 1.5 feet under the surface. Sunday’s 14” (1.4” of snow water equivalent) added enough stress to make slopes unstable. Snowmobilers triggered a slide on this layer near Lulu Pass and had to be rescued, while another sledder had a near-miss ascending Daisy Pass when a natural slide almost caught him. This heavy load also triggered natural slides on Scotch Bonnet and Miller Ridge. Ian and I went there yesterday and found deep snow, evidence of wind drifts from the strong winds, and a thin layer of facets breaking in our stability tests. Today, the avalanche danger is rated MODERATE because it is possible to trigger slides on this layer, although I do not expect it to remain a problem for a long time.

Morning from Bearclaw bakery and the Super 8. The snowman is coming through with another great storm. He's put us in a winter storm warning, with a possible 12 - 18 inches, starting today till Friday at 11 am. Keep DANCING

AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: Yesterday skiers south of town dug a pit and found good, stable conditions on their tour. Even so, given the weekend’s new snow, wind-loading, and variable nature of this weak layer, it is still possible to trigger slides. Travel one at a time in avalanche terrain and back off at the first sign of instability (cracking, collapsing and recent avalanches no matter how small). For today, the danger is rated MODERATE.

I've been busy filling avy bottles, stop in if you need one filled or looking to buy or rent avy packs, beacons, probes or shovels.

Don't forget that we sell out of state snowmobile permits.
