Tim and I had our first guest this past weekend — all the way from Munich. The three of us had a total blast and it was so much fun to introduce Big Sky to a friend. Our guest also happens to be a kick ass skier, so we explored a ton of new stuff, did some hiking and he and Tim braved the Big Couloir.
The “Big,” as locals call it, is Big Sky’s signature run from the top of 11,253-foot Lone Peak. With a sustained 45-50 degree pitch and 1,400 vertical feet, it’s a challenging and potentially harrowing experience. You have to sign out with ski patrol, get a time slot, carry avi gear, and ski in only pairs. So I let our German guest test it out for me
We’re expecting some new snow this weekend and early this week, so I’m planning to put my big girl pants on and ski The Big with Tim after the weather clears. Confession: just thinking about it makes my heart pound …
Here’s the fitness and wellness content that inspired me this week.
Have a great weekend!
