    Cooler AM temps; a little color, other than green, around the valley; And it's the last week of August.
    My annual signals that 2 of the three offseasons have passed. Fall is awesome but the November doldrums of anticipation are brutal.

    Time to scan for ski stuff needs while it's as cheap as it's gonna get. Thing is, I don't need a damn thing. I have 2+ of all soft/hard gear. Wish I'da mounted the new skis last season as a new sharp edge may well have prevented my Knee ding. Tough luck.

    Structural Safety Inspector - always on the clock.

    SFB knows roofs, PM him. He might trade fish for skillz...

    Greenmachine - you are inked in for the Village and Darkside tours.

    Skibrd - didn't you work for the man? Get in the loop, we'll have ya. Glad you got the full boat, worth every penny.

    Quite the local contingent here in JH. Sundays at 11 at Casper may get busy. Down days midweek's gonna be just us kooks ripping bowls and crushing the village. And Ikon smackage.

    The ski bum vibe here is like the solar system: A handful of major players, many smaller but uniquely important ones, then all the rest of the dynamic and changing features. Occasionally someone really amazing pushes through.
    Hard to say who's the sun though, maybe skijunky. He's fosho a planet methinks.

    I shorted my season by five days last year b'cuz da knee. Can ya tell I'm jonesing to get 'em back?

    I agree it's gonna be a good year.

    Knee's on the mend: Full ACL replacement harvested from quad,meniscus trim and partial MCL. I'd give it a B minus right now.

    Meister - the mags in Big sky are top shelf fun. Reach out or I'll connect ya. Might even go up for a day. Gotta go crush the north summit snowfield.

    I musta skied with 25-30 mags here last year. Man that was fun. Some for days, some for a coupla laps. All cool in different ways. Dig it. Then both BBI's and 2 trips to Big Sky last year. Prolly 30 more mags.

    I have 5 - 1/2 off passes. Mallwalker gets dibs on one cuz' I gave him one last year for one of the only blackout days. Didn't even know there were any. Other 4 up for grabs for poor mags or a parent springing for the family, oof.

    Most leftover skis/hardgear at 50% off in the valley. Who needs what?
    I will be yer HUCKleberry one or two of those halfers. You have snowbird comps waiting if you head south this year

    Used to work for the man, taking a year off of it. Schedule was too hectic last winter and it sucked.

    Looking out the window in Moose, I see entire yellow leaf filled branches on both cottonwood and aspen.

    This showing ski bums around the village thing is a good gig. Thoroughly enjoyed it last year. As SFB told me, I have yet to meet a mag I didn't like.

    Glad you're out from beneath the thumb, skibrd. It's bettah.

    Fugi - pm'ed ya for sad vibes...you could show up at 3am and would be welcome. Anytime my friend.

    Norse - You show, we go. You get the full hook. Bring Mofro. Nice Tool reference.

    SVS and TFT for the roadtrip...You guys are manic for the driving. Me too. Have to get my game on for all you PNW hammers. Solid.

    SIJ - I don't wanna believe it's turning in the 3rd week of Aug. but it would appear so. Hope the colors last for a few weeks.

    Most of you have seen my digs and know the offer: a spare bedroom inside, the futon in the wax room and a massive garage. We could house 20 mags if they were melloooooow. Free beds in JH. 420 friendly. Very safe. Bong leaves a bit to be desired.

    Where ya at, Sailcat?

    Penciling you in, with an ink pen right now, whoooeeee.

    Last year one of the CO mags set me up for dabs in the smoky hut and I about did 3 pirouettes and then keeled over. Look forward to that again Mr. youknowwhoyouareguy.

    B-bear - maybe we should start a slumber party for mag ski bums. That'd get rowdy. I still have yer prize from BBIAlpy waiting.

    The GF and I rented a Wandervan for a couple weeks, picking it up in Boise this Saturday. Will be cruising through Teton county at some point with MTB's in tow. Any recommended spots for #vanlife overnight parking?

    Grand Targhee lets you camp for like 10 bucks and there is great MBing at the resort and surrounding area.

    Good call. Another option is down at 'big eddy'/Rainey Bridge on the Teton River, just not on weekends.
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    I second this for at least one night.
    The riding at Targhee is really fun. long downhills and more raw trails than you typically see at resorts

    as Parvo and his grandmother's shawl suggest, it's getting cold here at night again so bring warmer clothes than you think - esp if you end up staying at high altitudes a lot like at Targhee
    On the JH side the usual non-campground camping spots are up in Curtis Canyon or Shadow Mtn
    they are a little drive outside of town and I've noticed in the past week or so that town is slowing down a bit so you've got that going for you
    enjoy the trip!

    Norseman, you show up, let the local mags take care of the rest.

    I’d be down for a mag Targee bike meet up.

    Thanks b-bear, we're going to wait until after Labor Day to roll into Jackson. We've got puffy jackets, hats and pants ready to roll.

    I have some friends in Alta, WY that are going to go for a ride or two with us so will probably lay over at their house for a day or so but will most likely hit up Curtis Canyon. Are there primitive sites in the Shadow Mtn area or just find a good spot to park?

    Id be there for that.
    Caution, though, the next three weekends at Targhee will be a shitshow (enduro race, Wydaho Bike Fest, NICA race)

    Jobs at Jackson and Targhee

    Hey TGR!

    First post on here so go easy on my poor ass. I'm a Canadian who moved to Australia, and has been going back and instructing in BC for the past 3 winters. Was doing some daydreaming the other day about working a season in the states after I finish up University. Any word on instructing at Jackson Hole or Grand Targhee? My understanding is I'll probably get more work at Jackson, but it'll be dummy expensive living there. Targhee will get less work but will be more affordable. Any knowledge on what rent's like in those areas? Just trying to do some homework before I make poor life decisions ! Cheers for the insight

    Let us know when you get to town and I’ll join for a few rides. I know my way around the pass pretty well, but still get lost in Cashe Creek on the Snow King side of things.

    There are a couple pairs of Fisher ranger 98ti's in 180 and 188 at the tent sale on the village, half off.

    I’m in Moose right now, but my son says there is a big wildfire in downtown JH on the butte.
