    Jackson Hole Roll Call Winter 14/15

    There's snow on the ground in the valley and yet no winter roll call hath been started. Imbred JONG to the rescue!!!

    Maybe you've already skied. Telemark Bowl? Is the grass covered? Friday may be the day...

    Anyways, cue assortment of random personal softcore Tetons stoke from last season...

    Dawn patrol on Chiver's about this time last year:


    What most of December looked like:


    Caleb (bcfreerider) skiing Edelweiss:


    Wa-pow! Barreled @ JHMR:


    South Side soul shredding (quotient of soul lessened by presence of gopro):


    Targhee:


    Some of the deeper runs from the South Side last winter:


    Backflips!


    JHMR this am:


    And Teton shredding from people way gnalier than me (i.e. officially hardcore):




    Winter's here! Yew!!

    North aspects above 9k had some snow left over from previous storms. I'll bet it's nice and faceted by now. Something to watch for during the early season. (possibly longer)

    To confirm - yes, true statement. I took a hike up to the Breccia cliffs near Togwotee pass on Saturday the 8th. All North facing slopes at about 8k and above actually had about 2-4 inches of cover still, but it was faceted.

    What kind of boots were you wearing? Those look a lot like animal tracks.

    Looks like tomorrow am could be cool. Predicting 6-9 in the valley which I imagine would double on top te pass. This weekend should be killer.

    Still, tried to bike to work this am. Hot damn that was cold!

    .....go out and make this season the best season of your life. Ski that line, take that trip, slide that rail, make that leap, live for the moment, and make memories with friends that’ll last a lifetime, because as a great man once said, “If you don’t do it this year, you’ll be one year older when you do.”

    They give you any crap about skinning up and riding? 7" of fluff at the office in Jackson this AM. Snow King is looking deceptively good.

    Never, ever have I ever received crap about pre/post - season access. Usually get plenty of warning about any closure/restrictions.

    These guys in the photo are friends of mine, who rock this shit WAY more than I do. Two of them are ski patrol at our little local hill (KC). Awesome, awesome guys.
