Do you have a long track or do u mostly trail ride? We have been going out to the southern bighorns for past 15 years, and we do mostly off trail riding, so we go in the beginning of March when the snow is set up better and there is a real good base, we all have short tracks and we can go just about everywhere we want to go,that time of year, the days are longer and the temps are warmer,great riding. I went out to big horns early in the season once and we couldnt get anywhere off trail because of the deep fluffy snow Nothing beats spring time riding in mountains. The Northern bighorns has more lodging options and is alittle more populated, and alot more riders, The southern bighorns has its own appeal, its more quite and how should i say it less ritzy I guess. Either way u will have a nice time.

I have been there before. If you are thinking of staying on the mountain you need to call ASAP!!!! the lodges fill up fast!!! Bear lodge seems to be the best to say at, most organized and stuff like that, The passage is a very nice place but just never seem to be organized and Arrowhead worked just fine for us last year.

What kind of information are you looking for i can help you out??

Check out my post on the second page, Them pictures are from last year!!!! Lots of Fun!!!!!

We have short tracks and mostly just trail ride. We would like to go more in the spring but Dec is the only time it works for us. I was thinking of staying at Bear Lodge from what I have seen so far. I have not talked to them yet but I did see the Passage has rooms left. Does it get real busy? i would rather have it more peaceful so would maybe consider the southern side. Any recommended lodging in that area?

You will be just fine riding trails with short tracks. You can always rent a mountain sled one day when you are out there. It does get really busy out there a lot of ppl book there trip a year in advance just to make sure they get a room. I have never stayed anywhere but them three lodges i listed above.

They got some snow there a few days ago... didn't stick but its the start of the snow season.

Any other questions let me know smile

We got rooms at Bear Lodge. Now I will have to work on jetting the sleds and getting them ready to go. Does it seem to be quite a bit busier on weekends? Half of our trip will be during the week so hopefully it won't be too crowded.

We will be there Dec 20-23. Its the first time we have ever rode out there. So I am sure it will be a learning experience. But it looks like they have a pretty good shop there if we have problems or forget something.

Once u go mountain riding u will be hooked, getting off trail and heading into the back country is awsome, Like I said in a earlier post we have been going to southern bighorns{meadowlark resort} for the past 15 years and every time we go we always find new areas that we have never ridden before, some of the valleys and play areas are so big u can spend the whole day just play riding, If snow is low watch for the rocks laugh

    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
