SnowBrains headed up that way over the weekend to ski Beartooth Basin and was lucky enough to be one of a handful to be allowed through the closed gate and escorted to the ski area. Of course, with fresh snow and nobody else able to get there, it was freakin’ awesome! Check out our report…

Pretty mental that we’re having road closures in Montana/Wyoming in late-June for 5-days straight! Is that a record…?

Beartooth Basin was pretty special this weekend.

Heavy snow hit the west over the weekend, with Steamboat, CO getting almost 2-feet of fresh summer powder. Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park, CO also closed briefly over the weekend due to snowy conditions.
