(editor’s note: Beartooth Basin in MT/WY is open daily from 9am – 3pm. They accept cash or checks only. This is the coolest summer skiing going)

*June 3rd Update*
2-4 feet of snow this past week has helped out by adding base and buffing out the lines. We are still building our park in preparation for the 3rd annual Beartooth Summer Session (5th-9th), as always there are plenty of natural features and steep lines to ski. The IFSA will be sanctioning a two day Regional Junior event, Beartooth Basin Competition (13th-14th). Points earned will count towards the 2014 season.
It was snowing as the crew left today, with snow expected tonight and tomorrow and another snow storm on Friday, this forecast should only add to our fun!
*June 4th Update*
The skiing today was in snowflakes and clouds in and out… so we didn’t get many photos. The weather should turn more spring-like with highs forecast in the 50’s which will help soften things up for the summer session. The first couple of features are nearly completed and the crew has been busy building the park.
Thanks to Justin and Beartooth for these updates. Can’t wait to get up there.
