Ski to Covey Meadow 2017

With the warmer weather up here in northwestern Montana, we knew that the snow might be a bit crusty. We were feeling the winter cabin fever, however, and the bluebird day called us up the long drive to Polebridge to do a little ski to Covey Meadow along the Inside North Fork Road. After a […]
