Thinkin about goin this winter to Whitefish Mtn, Montana. Obviously huge mountain with tons of pow
and looks to be a sick enough park. Im from the midwest so i dont
really know that much about it? Anybody have an opinion?
Great treeskiing. With a La Nina and a -PDO, this winter should be excellent for snow at Whitefish.

(on October 2-3, 2009): Schweitzer receives first snowfall of the 2009-10 season. Ken Barrett, lead guide at Selkirk Powder Company, kicks off season by skiing down the ramp outside SPC's private lodge. Think Snow.
my friend lived there last winter and loved it. it's a super small town, but my impression was that it was pretty cool by montana standards. the trip that i took to visit him, it snowed the day before i showed up and i was skiing knee deep freshies for the following four days straight. the only thing you've got to be prepared for is a lack of bluebird days. it was foggy as hell every day i was there and that's apparently the norm for most of the winter. but otherwise, such an incredibly fun place to ride.
Big Mtn. Pwns great trees any day, and some pretty sick cliffs on pow days. and their park is OK ive skied better in the midwest but you wont wanna be in the park very much with all the awesome natural terrain. also when are you going because ill be there the 27th-the 2nd (ish).

definitely go there! Real mellow town, but the mountain is awesome. I went there for a week in february a few years ago, and it was only bluebird the first day, and then dumped snow the rest of the week.
its awesome in the winter and they get tons of snow but NEVERever go there during the summer to bike, i just about killed my self when i seen they had 1 dh trail and i had just drove there from canada...
never been to grand targhee, but Big Mountain has often been called the Big Fog.. It's really hit or miss though. it can get really foggy there but it can also be real sunny.
Also, sometimes it looks like it's gonna be super foggy from town, but it's an inversion when you get up there, and then you're in for a real treat.
yeah dude, inversions are so sick.. also if the light is right, there is this shit that happens called the fata morgana. it's this reflection off the clouds or something that makes the mountains look like crazy plateaus and looks like this:
