The last 8 days or so we have had a snowy cold spell that provided us some backcountry/crosscountry skiing. This weather also gave us a boost in moisture stored high in the mountains waiting for spring run-off.
Next week, the weather is predicted to warm up to near 50 degrees. That is nice, not TOO warm. We are planning to scout the river and we have a few fishing dates on the calendar, too. The end of March and April are booking up nicely. We will be posting blogs to show you how the fishing shapes up.
In honor of old man winter, here are some photos of our last ski days. We hiked/climbed to get to the snow, but it was worth it! Soon, we will be sitting in the boat and there won't be as much time for cardio-fitness.
Some days we used touring ski's other days we used backcountry gear. We are fortunate to live in the Bitterroots. Great outdoor fun all year long.
Yesterday was cold, about 17 to 20 degrees, but the sun was brilliant. That might have been our last mountain snow day.
