West Yellowstone remains an early season magnet for training. In good snow years, the grooming is otherworldly. In thin times, the fact that several trails are seeded with grass and legendary Rendezvous Ski Trails groomer Doug Edgerton turns water into wine means even meager snow can seem dreamy. And yes, there’s always the higher altitude South Plateau Rd. which comes into play when the winter blanket in town is lacking. From Nov. 26-30, the Christie...

Fischer’s high end skis and boots are at a level of performance and sophistication that it is best to work with consumers through on line reservations at West Yellowstone instead of the cattle call at the trail head. Fischer will continue with its online registration to reserve skis and boots for the Fall Ski Fest during Thanksgiving. The new gear deserves to be given to consumers in a setting where it can be explained and properly fitted. This is best done in the Fischer booth at the Expo each night.v

Bridger Ski Foundation director and race organizer Dragen Danevski said on Tuesday that he was confident Bohart could pull off a third race, which...

As we do for each race we tested a matrix of CH, LF, and HF base gliders based on temp and humidity. Once we had chosen the base wax we re-waxed and zeroed the test skis with the chosen base and tested if Cera-F over-layers increased the speed.  A final...

With less than two weeks to go until the start of the West Yellowstone Ski Festival, snow conditions appear promising. According to Director Sara Hoovler, the Montana town received roughly three inches of snow on Monday into Tuesday.
