August on the Sun

~ by  Merritt

An appetite for summer skiing or snowboarding usually finds one on the sunny, groomed slopes of Mount Hood or the glacial peaks of Chile.  Yet for all its publicity, the Montana’s own Glacier National Park has never been known for its ski and snowboard opportunities.  Sure, you have to hike your way to the top of your line, and sure, there could be thirty smartphone-wielding tourists hoping to post your vicious yard-sale on YouTube.  But if you are looking to shred some summer corn with epic views in every direction, Glacier is tough to beat. The most easily-accessed terrain typically becomes available in mid-June with the opening of the Going To The Sun Road.  Our crew of six took advantage of the record snow pack provided by the winter of 2011 and headed up in August.

Despite a prediction for freezing rain, the turbulent weather patterns of the Rocky Mountain Front surprised us with blue skies and temperatures in the mid 60s.  The park really shines on days like these.  360 degrees of glowing white glacial snow cutting across blue horizons and melting into lush alpine forests shadowed by towering peaks.

True to the hype, GNP provides a plethora of eye candy.

After a brief parking fiasco, we picked out a nice open roller and built a mellow kicker far away from the bustle of tourists on the Hidden Lake Boardwalk.  Perfect for a relaxing August afternoon.

Glacier is famous for its plummeting waterfalls, death-defying mountain goats, and crystal clear mountain lakes.  But to a skiers and snowboarders, Glacier National Park is an infinite playground of limitless lines shaped by thousands of years of geographic processes.  Without lifts or runs, each experience in Glacier  Park is unique and bound only by one’s creativity, drive, and goals.  Whether you are seeking a relaxing day on a mellow slope or an intense mountaineering expedition into a never-ridden area, Glacier Park has it.

Altoona Ridge Lodge

~ by  lbsnow

The Altoona Ridge Lodge is located in the heart of the Flint Creek Range, in Granite County, Montana.  LBsnow enjoyed a weekend revising our knowledge of the backcountry and snow safety, while enjoying untouched powder in undiscovered terrain in-taking 3 hearty meals a day. 

Awaking to a hot breakfast and a warm cup o’ Jo at Altoona Ridge Lodge.

Instructors James & Eric. James is a Pro Patroller at Snowbowl, MT 4 days a week. Eric is a Volunteer Patroller. Both spend majority of there lives in ski boots. Both teach avalanche classes through Altoona Ridge Lodge and they might just be available on a given weekend to guide you to some of Montana’s finest winter terrain. 

Dane Surkamer of The University of Montana is spending a weekend learning new ideas and testing his previous skills during an avalanche 1 class. Dane is in the process of solidifying a large area of snow allowing him to perform multiple types of snow safety tests.


David Bosler on top of a rutschblock with his UNITY dominion split board.  This block broke after a few solid hops from the knees. I wonder if it’s SAFE?


Looking east from just behind the Lodge.


Views over 120 miles in every direction. You can see all the way up through the Mission Mountains into the Scapegoat Wilderness. I think I can see the Granite Park Chalet in Glacier if I’m not mistaken. 

  • Be Nice. He may be cooking your dinner!
  • The Lodge is designed to accommodate parties of up to 6 people.
  • Choose between self guided or hosted trips.
  • Altoona Ridge Lodge is a two hour drive from Missoula, Montana, and in the middle of the Flint Creek Mountains, in the Deer Lodge Forest.


Relax the head, shoulders, knees, and toes at the end of the day in the wood fired sauna. Altoona Ridge Lodge is one of the most enjoyable and humbling getaways I’ve had.
