I definitely had to look twice when I saw mention of Lost Trail on the cover
of the October 2002 Powder Magazine.  That's two years in a row that one of
the major mags has had a Lost Trail story (which is amazing, since I'd never
heard of it before moving here).  Both articles have to do with the
expansion terrain, which basically brings the resort from a Bolton
Valley-sized place, to one 4-5 times the size (hopefully without too much
increase in skier traffic).  It's certainly the talk of the town (when the
topic of skiing comes up at least) and it's going to be an interesting scene
to watch.  I just hope the new chair runs.

Here's a fun example of the Lost Trail scene.  Last year E and I were
waiting for chair 3 to open so we could hit the powder off the back side of
the Bear Claw Ridge.  Chair three only runs on weekends, but even then, you
never know.  Although the chair was slated to open at around 10:00 A.M.,
sometime after 11:00, it was still no go.  When we asked one of the other
lift operators what the status was on chair 3, he said "Ah, well, those guys
partied pretty hard and they're probably not up yet."  The funny part was,
he wasn't joking.  He didn't even say it in a really pissed off tone either,
more of a matter of fact tone.  I think it did open eventually, but it's a
good example of the laid-back Lost Trail style.  It's not a style that fits
everyone, but friends that visited last year really enjoyed it (especially
the $20 lift tickets and the great snow).  Anyone who finds themselves
roaming around Western Montana this season and wants to check out Lost
Trail, let us know, we'll be happy to give a tour.
