Although Idaho and a good part of the NW is suffering from a marginal snow year, the Sawtooths continue to hold true to its reputation of having a deeper snowpack.  Even if things are looking thin in the Ketchum area, we’re seeing average depths of 4-6 feet, with even 9 feet up high!  The skiing continues to be off the hook…here’s a couple photos…

SMG guides have been skiing everyday for 2 weeks straight, and the ski bender included Mike Hatch, Clark and Trei with tour parters Kirk, Marc Hansleman and Brad Hatch from Greenwoods.  We’ve covered everything from Copper Mountain to secret stashes in the Sawtooths, and the classic runs at the Williams Peak Yurt.  Hanselman & Clark guided a group based out of the Sawtooth Hotel, and got some great powder stashes in the Banner Summit area.  During a brief period of good stability, the chute patrol even made an appearance, and got to venture into some higher exciting terrain.
