Scenic Chute Near Rock Creek Vista Point, Montana, June 16, 2017, Part One

Our original plan was to ski Beartooth Basin. We were first delayed by Beartooth Pass being closed in the morning after a dusting of snow. Next, after the road opened, Beartooth Basin wasn't running lifts due to a generator issue. Our plan "B" became skiing a snow patch we saw along the drive up that was about a quarter mile up from the Rock Creek Vista Point. After this we would ski above Beartooth Loop and Gardner Lake in Wyoming to complete patchskiing in two states in one day.

Two days later when there was better visibility, Spence took this photo of some good, solid advice on Beartooth Pass Highway.
