Being the iconic ski mountain in the Bitterroots, I try to ski Trapper Peak every spring.
A descent of this classic mountain in the Missions takes good weather and the right conditions for an incredible day trip.
What's better than skiing pow with your buddies? Nothing! Here's a video of my 2013 season skiing in the Montana backcountry. All footage from this video was accessed via touring, hiking or snowcat. All footage was shot in western Montana.

Thank you Great Northern Powder Guides, Montana Ski Company, GoPro and Snow Gods
For the "rad montana skis."
In an effort to stay in the sunshine, leaving our beloved Montana for Central Idaho was the weather forecasted direction we headed.
Our first stop: the hot springs of Stanley Idaho. With many to choose, we camped at the Salmon River Campground about three miles north of town and soaked in the tub springs by the side of the road. It was perfect temps, no one there, and a half mile from camp.
After receiving another round of deep powder, Camas Peak seemed like an ideal place for a mid spring powder tour.
In keeping with the idea of a highlights season, touring to Sugarloaf Peak made the cut. An excellent approach, very aesthetic line, and a lovely canyon with great views to the south of Trapper Peak and Boulder and Mount Jerusalem distinguish and characterize the Sugarloaf Peak tour.
Thought I'd share a video of random clips from the last 6 months. This is not my submission for the Ski Vid Contest.
