re: Minnesota - places to see, things to do? - fargobison
Duluth is beautiful, I would recommend that for sure. Brainard is also a great spot, easy to get to from MSP if you want to just chill at the lake and maybe sneak in some golf. Some fantastic courses there. Bemidji/Itasca is another great area, lot of hiking trails and you can check out the head...

re: 2020-2021 ski thread - fargobison
I am excited that Pano is open, was worried for a while that it wasn't going to be...Hopefully there is still some good snow left. Guess I'll have to deal with some ice/rocks but coming from the Midwest I'll just be happy to be skiing. I am pumped for Vail, wasn't orginally going to be a part of...

Almost went to Tahoe but picked Colorado instead after CA went into lockdown. At least I won't have to worry about it melting I guess but the forecast sucks. Going to Winter Park tomorrow for 3 days, Vail 1 day and Copper 1 day. ...

re: Another Denver/Colorado thread... - fargobison
There are some hotels in Frisco and Dillon that are alright, same with Fraser but it all depends on when you want to go. Granted you aren't in a swanky ski town but you are in the mountains and can drive to any of them. You can stay around Granby pretty cheap as well if you look at airbnb. ...

So we have vaccines that are supported by what is the gold standard of scientific research and then we have a pubmed article which is pretty much just a commmentary by some quack. Who to believe...Who to trust...I work with a transplant surgeon and a intensivist both with decades of experience who c...

re: 2020-2021 ski thread - fargobison
Last day of three at Big Sky, was windy but still a good time. Seems like people sleep on Big Sky a bit, snow is a bit thin right now but for what this place offers not sure you can find a better mountain when the snow is good. Tons of terrian and you don't have to fight the crowds. Great views as w...

re: 2020-2021 ski thread - fargobison
One day of skiing in at Big Sky, I think at most I waited in a lift line for a few minutes. They have a lot of the mountain open considering the amount of snow they have had, some thin spots but managable. Everything is open here as well. [img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EpjuKEdUYAIvtE3?format=j...
