  1. Mountain West Discussion

    They're both in the same valley, but Bozeman-MSU is tucked at the southeastern corner of the valley against the Gallatin and Bridger mountains, whereas Gallatin Field is located in the middle of the valley about 400 feet lower than MSU, and is actually in an entirely different town with a way drier microclimate. So, it's legit. I used to live in Bozeman, they have super sharp microclimates around that valley.

  3. Public Service Announcement - Please Read

    Fwiw I still think this is one of the better subforums here. I stop by periodically to read the LR threads, although as a Westerner, I love me a nasty SE ridge, so I won't be actively posting in them :).

    ka ching We've done a great job of making lemonade from lemons this winter. Snowpack is a little lacking in northern MT east of the divide, but otherwise we're in good shape and AFAIK most terminals will finish the month with BN temps.

    Some areas around GNP including Essex picked up 40". Got 18" here. About two feet of snowpack now.

  9. Mountain West Discussion

    Certain other subforums would have multiple tracking threads with thousands of posts to track 1" of snow. Not us, nuh uh. We're the Rockies, we're a snow region

    I did see a sundog today. Lasted for several hours actually, as the fog was just barely starting to break up at the Big Mountain base area. Big Mountain (the local ski resort here, a.k.a. Whitefish Mtn) usually has a persistant fog layer toward the bottom or middle portion of the mountain, especially when we ridge.
