Mantana – The Introduction

Alpine-Live contributor and team skier Casey Denning left the EC last month to head back to MSU, in the meantime he has been enjoying Yellowstone National Park and Montana’s natural beauty. There has been a few snow events up high in the Bridger mountain range (located ~40 minutes off-campus) but nothing significant yet.
In the off season Casey is a very passionate fly fisherman. On Saturday (Sept. 25) he ventured into Yellowstone in search of river trout – he got what he came for and then some. He encountered an elk stampeed – almost being “gored” by one himself…he unsettled an old and dying buffalo on the riverbed…had a gripping close encounter with a grizzly bear and managed to catch a 17-inch monster cutthroat river trout. Casey fortunately survived and still had time to take these photos of his fetch. We’ll be catching up with him and his crew on a weekly basis from Bridger Bowl, MT via GoPro and photo stills. ENJOY!

Sunday Night Stop Motion

“I can smell snow outside and there was frost on my windshield this morning. A good sign.”
One of our riders sent me this text today from his Kennebunk, ME home. We’ve seen signs of snow on the webcam up at the observatory on Mount Washington and there is some serious dipping temperatures up high. Will we be skiing again on Halloween? Start making sacrifices to the ski god! Enjoy this stop motion movie we found on the internetz.
