Powder-Dusted Mountains of Montana

by Nicole Trilivas

I wasn’t raised in one of those families who spent their winters on the slopes. Luckily, my chosen family introduced/forced me into participating in winter sports, and these days I’m a half-way decent snowboarder! And the people rejoice! What I love even more than boarding, is the lifestyle surrounding it: renting cabins in the mountains, getting up early to get first tracks, hot cocoa breaks, resting for a hot lunch, end-of-day stretching and icing and chilling and beer drinking (yum Moosehead IPA). Can’t wait for next year!
