I hit Schweitzer in the middle of a great storm cycle. Place was dead and amazing. I literally got 10 laps on the Great escape lift before 11am, all untracked.


Thanks. A friend and I skied Schweitzer on a Sunday last March on our way back to Spokane from Nelson. Curiosity and eastern tree skiing attitudes/skills led us to significant stretches of untracked powder days after the last storm. I was impressed.

I am now flying into Spokane February 19 and out March 3. Liz is unlikely available much of February, so this schedule gets me to my cat skiing Feb. 22-24 with some extra time on the back end while leaving the first half of February open for events in Utah to which I can drive.

At the start I will probably spend Feb. 20 at Red (or Whitewater if Red is not good), then drive to my pickup west of Revelstoke Feb. 21. Tentative plan is to exit east to Kicking Horse, then south to Fernie/Castle/Whitefish. That's where the most snow is now, but with a car I can be flexible if it's different when I get up there.

I locked into a trip to New England a couple months ago to accompany my son for his PSIA Level III skiing exam on 3/19 and 20 at Hunter Mtn. Unfortunately, they may get a messy rain/snow mix from Winter Storm Vulcan on 3/13. But before and after we're spending time at Sugarloaf and Whiteface which I believe are on the upside of the line for a foot or two of snow. Better to be lucky than good:-)
