Montana got pounded with up to at least 10″ of snow yesterday.  We know this because Showdown Montana reported 10″ of snow yesterday.  Just imagine how much snow the highest peaks got…

The above photo shows a local and dogger getting after it yesterday at Showdown Montana ski resort, MT.  Skiing “powder” on Labor Day?  Badass.

Beartooth Pass (US-212) in Montana/Wyoming has been closed due to snow since yesterday morning at 6:45am.  This is the second time Beartooth Pass has closed because of snow in 12 days.

Montana got all kinds of snow all over yesterday.

NOAA issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Montana that called for 4-8″ of snow above 6,000′ on Sunday and Monday – but they also released a snowfall forecast map showing some spots forecast to see 8-12″ of snow.

Clearly, they were right.
