Three days in Whitefish, Montana

Summary:FantasticPure blue skies, the deepest snow in a decade, American hospitality - everything was unbelievably good from wheatfish beer to floating down Toni Matt (2,100 vertical feet of nearly continuous fall line, seven minutes up, seven minutes down) and starting to think I can actually do this stuff.Even found a great barbeque joint in the village - piggyback's is the real thing - looks like a dive, smells like heaven, smoked ribs taste like nothing else.
