Montana is one of my favorite states in the US when it comes to freeriding. The state is less touristy and less commercial and offers great skiing possibilities in resorts such as Big Sky and Bridger Bowl. But Montana has more to offer. A vast backcountry for example.
Land Of No Use
This backcountry is by some people known as 'Land Of No Use', because there aren't that much natural resources. Except for the white gold of course. This is half an hour stoke on a Sunday afternoon!
