Sun, and more sun!! While the valley has had a smattering of fog and clouds, Big Mountain has been in the sun. It is great to head up to ski and watch the car thermometer rise as we drive up higher in elevation. The valley can be 10 degrees and the summit of Whitefish Resort will be 23 degrees. Nice to sit on a high speed chair and get warmer instead of colder as you climb the hill.
See the video below of the happenings from today on the mountain. Those telemark skiers skinning up the mountain are incredible athletes in the Whitefish Whiteout.
Went to the Montana Coffee Traders cupping event this morning. Went through an extensive lesson in smelling and tasting coffee. First as the grounds, then with the water in the cups, then lightly stirring and smelling after 4 min., then slurping to taste. Pretty interesting and informative from one of the owners and the coffee buyer for the company. When we moved to the Flathead Valley in 1995 from the Seattle area, Montana Coffee Traders was IT for coffee in the valley. There were no espresso stands or anywhere else to buy espresso. They are the best.
