Big Sky / Bridger Bowl Ski Trip

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

Since learning how to ski in January 2006, I’ve been on a total of four ski trips: two to Grand Targhee, one to Les Sybelles, and now one to Big Sky and Bridger Bowl. The trips to the Rockies are especially big, and this year included nine others (most friends from college): Greg, Tiff, John, Rachel, Andrew, Emily, Mark, Peter, and Katie. The yearly promise of powder, good times, and long drives once again held true, and I think it’s fair to say that we all challenged ourselves and improved our skiing abilities, not to mention our ability to celebrate New Years to the tune of Auld Lang Syne in downtown Bozeman.
