A couple weekends ago I went down to Yellowstone with the intention of skiing the Pebble Creek trail near the east entrance of the park. When I got there I read the description of the trail and decided it was too steep and avalanche-y for me to ski myself.
I checked out a few trailheads and ended up skiing the (closed) road to the Slough Creek trailhead, through the campground and across a meadow.
It was pretty.
The beautiful Beartooth mountains.
Soda Butte Creek.
Bannock Creek ski trail, obviously.
A herd of bison at Slough Creek. They were not that happy to see me ski by.
Nice photo, Mel. Thanks.
