    2017/2018 Jackson Hole/Targhee/Tetons thread

    It is snowing, media 310 is probably writing shitty blogs, its time to ski. Probably 75 cars at the Ghee yesterday, it didn't suck.

    Upper lot damn near full today, lots of smiles and man/woman's best friends. The Trap was full of post tour folks enjoying a libation.

    Well FKNA look who’s on the home page of my local ski hill, Alpental @Snoqualmie Pass.
    Andrew, i bet they didn’t pay you enough money for this but the smile is a million bucks.
    Now that you’re an ‘ambassador’ you really should bring the family for a visit.

    I ski there almost every year. Last year was epic. I left just before the shutdown in Feb or March. Great conditions. My business partner got screwed on timing and was stuck during the shutdown.

    Best time of year is when my inbox starts blowing up with daily updates from BTNF avalanche center. I was particularly surprised to read this in last night’s update:

    “Of the 23 years where historic data is available for November 6th, this year’s snow depths at the Rendezvous Bowl study plot are the highest on record.”

    They say that every year. Marketing dept must run the avalanche center.

    Coworker told me they'll try to have Blackfoot spinning in addition to DC and Sac. Sound like patrol is short staffed this year so they got some work to do this week.

    A good way to get more info on the snowpack. I subscribed so when a new video comes out I’ll get a peak into what is going on out there.

    Is it worth making the trip this weekend to Grand Targhee from the front range? There's no snow down here and I am tempted to go get some powder.

    Looks like it's going to start nuking later this week. I'm going to be up there this weekend ... but I have a short drive, not +-12 hours. See ya there? ;-)

    .....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.”

    So no more T-day opening? I guess Saturday is day #1 .

    Looking forward to a strong season- just like last year.

    I wish.... if only I could afford lift tickets and a place to stay. I can dream though.

    Teton mags - I'm new to driggs and looking for touring partners - pass, park, targhee backcountry, etc.

    Am experienced in the backcountry, have taken a level 1 a few years ago and am taking a level 2 in jackson in mid-january. Am fit/motivated and up for long days and/or big vert.

    Am off work and looking to ski most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Shoot me a PM if you'd like to get out. Cheers!

    Hey, while you're here reading...

    from your boot & foot expertise/experience , do you have a recommendation for a doctor in town (or nearby.. IF, SLC???) who has experience with & understands skier/athlete foot issues? I'm self-diagnosing a possible stress fracture, no idea who to go see.

    Thanks in advance.

    Coming up from Aspen. Will be wearing white sweet protection helmet, Kastle 194 mx 98 or blizzard bodacious in black, depending on how deep it is.
