Hey guys. Today’s post takes us back to Whitefish Mountain Resort (formerly Big Mountain) which is just outside Whitefish, Montana. I realize I’ve posted a few pictures like this already, but I just can’t help it, those snow ghosts are just irresistibly photogenic. When you toss them in front of a blue sky, magic just sort of happens. They seem to be pretty common in the high country at most inland ski resorts in the northwestern US and western Canada. (I’ve seen them in Montana, Idaho and BC mostly, but I’ve hardly been everywhere, so what do I know.)
I realize that it’s basically summer now, so winter and snow is the LAST thing on most of your minds (do I have any southern hemisphere readers?? Anyone??), but I’m not quite ready to let go yet. In fact, my original plan was to head up to Whistler this weekend for one last gasp, get in just a few more turns before the long hot summer. But sadly it didn’t work out, so alas I’ll be hanging out in and around Seattle this weekend. Sigh, oh well. Hope it’s nice wherever you’re at!
