We took a few days and flew to Montana to ski Big Sky to celebrate my 60th birthday. Big Sky Ski Resort has had a lot of snow year and their base was in the neighborhood of 8 feet.

As it happened, the weather gave us a bit of a warm up while we were there.  The daily highs were in the upper 30’s and got as high as 41 degrees at the base and around or below freezing on the top of the mountain.. The snow was still go, though. The groomers did a good job getting the slopes smoothed down overnight and by lunch time, the snow turned creamy and it was still easy to ski. We knocked off early afternoon each day soaked in the outdoor pool.
