Skiing first fall snow on Logan Pass in Glacier National Park

Yesterday my good friend and I Sonny headed up Logan Pass for a September 1 ski day. We have skied many of days from deep December powder to icy summer stuff. This year we were blessed with 3″ of smooth butter snow! It was a great way to ski my 46th month in a row of skiing year round within 75 miles of Whitefish. Who knows what this years La NiƱa holds…
