CLEAR SKIES Morning from the busy little town of Cooke city. The snowman is calling for clear skies for the next 3 days. Then look out, the snow moves back in for Wednesday through Tuesday. Keep up the snow dance. AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: In Cooke City and the southern Madison and Gallatin ranges avalanches breaking on a weak layer of facets 3-4’ deep are getting harder to trigger, but recent observations show they are possible. A large natural avalanche was observed on the Fin near Cooke City on Friday. Before the recent 2-3’ of snow, riders in the southern Madison Range had unstable stability test scores. Doug had similar findings at Bacon Rind on Thursday. In addition, wind has drifted snow into small wind slabs near ridgelines that are easy to trigger today. Avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE today. Its still going to be a busy day today and Monday is a holiday for some people. Have a safe ride up on the mountain. Top of the World is great, lots of guys are headed up their. ... See more
ANOTHER LONG DAY Evening from Cooke city. The snowest group has arrived and they are all having a good time. We at the Super 8 and Bearclaw would like to say THANK YOU for your business. The snowman is calling for Sunny skies tomorrow and 30% chance of snow for Monday. The Top of the World is awesome. Still has lots of untouched powder. AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: The southern Madison and Gallatin Ranges and mountains near Cooke City got to 2-2.5 feet of snow equal to 2-2.5” of SWE since Wednesday. The snowpack in these areas is handling this load well, as Doug found in Bacon Rind on Thursday. However, more snow equals more avalanches, and this recent snow was no exception. Yesterday, a large natural avalanche was observed on the Fin near Cooke City, and skiers reported collapsing on lower elevation terrain. A layer of facets buried 2-4’ deep is stronger than it was a few weeks ago, but avalanches on this layer are easier to trigger with the weight of the recent snow. New snow, wind and natural avalanches mean avalanches are easy to trigger, and the avalanche danger today is CONSIDERABLE. Terri had a good turn out for the prime rib dinner. She says Thanks for coming. ... See more
EARLY FRIDAY MORNING Headed out to plow all over again. The snowman gave us over a foot of snow in town. Friday's forecast is another 5 inches today. Saturday has a 50% chance of more snow. Monday through Wednesday we should see partly cloudy skies. Lets keep up the snow dance. We picked up 10 inches of snow yesterday. The new avalanche report isn't out yet, but I would suggest to be very careful out on wind loaded slopes today. I"ll update when I get back in. Have a good day.
SNOW COMING Morning from Bearclaw/ Bakery and the Super 8 motel. The snowman is calling for a nice dump of snow coming Wednesday. The last snow we picked up was about 3 inches last Sunday. We could see up to a foot of snow by the time its all over. AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: From Big Sky to West Yellowstone and Cooke City the snowpack is gaining strength at different rates. Cooke City has the deepest snow and largest avalanches last week, some 4’ deep. Skiers were still getting collapses there on Saturday and it’s not out of the question to get another today. Think of collapses as avalanches on flat terrain; these are major red flags. For today, stay out of avalanche terrain if you get collapsing, cracking or poor test scores. Avalanches are still possible and the danger is rated MODERATE. If the storm arrives as predicted, around West Yellowstone the avalanche danger will rise with new snow and wind. The bakery is offering a Prime rib dinner for this coming Saturday. She has about 10 spots open if you guys want to come in and have a great dinner. Give her a call and make a reservation. ...

Hello outdoor enthusiasts, I know you have seen information from me in the past several months on the WPLI process. It is time now for comments on the High Lakes WSA. The comment period ends FEBUARY 1st!This is almost everything we ride on the north side of the highway in the Beartooths. If we lose this area, it will cut our riding in half, and stick everyone in half the area. Think about that for a minute. I for one do not like riding a tracked up mountain, so I would like to have every single acre open that we can. If you are not familiar with this process, stop and see me at Roger’s Sport Center, and I will be glad to explain it to you. We need your support on this, if we are going to secure this riding area permanently. Let’s put this to bed once and for all! The link to the commissioners page is http://www.parkcounty.us/commissioners/wpli.html. The link to the High Lakes Proposal is http://www.parkcounty.us/commissione...highlakes.html . Please go to the site, and comment on this important issue. During the comment period for the McCullough Peaks, we were vastly outnumbered, with only 25% of the comments coming from the motorized community! Please do not let this happen again. Take a few minutes and comment. Thanks for your support!

This mornings snow storm
DANCE,DANCE,DANCE Its a good morning, its starting to snow. Keep up the snow dance. The snowman is calling for up to 5 inches of snow today. But for Sunday and Monday we will see partly cloudy skies. Tuesday through Thursday we have a chance of snow. AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: As the snowpack trends towards stability, it’s easy to get complacent and let your guard down. It’s important to remember that large and dangerous avalanches are still possible. It can’t be emphasized enough how important it is to follow the three simple rules of safe backcountry travel. 1) Everyone has proper rescue gear and knows how to use it. 2) Always watch your partner from a safe location. 3) Only expose one person at a time on steep slopes. Today, heightened avalanche conditions exist and the avalanche danger is rated MODERATE on all slopes. Another busy morning at the Bakery and the shop. Good thing we work on all brands of sleds. I forgot to thank MOM's MOTOR SPORTS for staying again with us. We'll see you at the end of March. Be safe. ... See more
SNOW DANCE Its a warmer morning in Cooke city. Everyone from Bearclaw / Bakery and the Super 8 motel, says HI. The snowman has raised the percentage to 70% for Saturday and Sunday now has a 30 % chance. Lets start the snow dance this morning and keep it up over the weekend. AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: Today, careful snowpack evaluation, conservative terrain selection and clear communication between group members is essential. Large human triggered avalanches remain possible and the avalanche danger is rated MODERATE. Looks like another day of being busy. It was a mad house yesterday. Thank you everyone. ... See more
TOP OF THE WORLD UPDATE Morning from Cooke city. The temps have warmed up to 3 above this morning, with clear skies. The snowman has changed his mind for the snow for the weekend. He is now saying we could see a chance of snow for Saturday. Then it turns partly cloudy for the next 4 days. AVLANCHE CONDITIONS: Now is a tricky time. As stability gradually improves, it will become easier to push it in steeper, more dangerous avalanche terrain. Under these conditions, it can take finding the right spot on the right slope to trigger a slide. This means that multiple skiers or riders can hit a slope before it avalanches. Tracks on a slope do not indicate stability. Today, carefully evaluate the snowpack and treat every steep slope as if it could slide. Although stability is gradually improving, large human triggered avalanches remain possible and the avalanche danger is rated MODERATE. Be careful out on the mountain this morning, slopes can slide. The top of the world is crusty and wind blown. I would say that at least 30 people was up their having a great time. __________________ ... See more
WARMER DAYS Morning from Bearclaw /bakery and the Super 8 motel. The snowman is going to start warmer temp's by the end of the week. Looking at snow to move in for the weekend. AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: The snowpack is stabilizing quickly, but not on all slopes, and not equally. You have to assess each slope individually, which means digging and doing a stability test in the absence of collapsing or cracking. Eric was in Cooke City yesterday and saw more avalanche crowns in one day than ever before. Today, I do not expect to see natural avalanches, but human triggered ones are possible and the danger is rated MODERATE, a “spicy” moderate is what I called it in yesterday’s video. Spicy because although the likelihood of triggering an avalanche fits a moderate rating, I’m being conservative and traveling as though it’s rated considerable. The prime rib was a great hit again. Hope to see every one this coming New Years Eve. Everyone is welcome to post anything they would like on this site. I hope some one turns in your lost items. If they do, I'll give you a call. It was a wild and crazy week for the holidays. Would like to thank everyone that has come up to Cooke City. Come back again. ... See more
