    Major wind deposition of an otherwise skimpy wave.

    Skiing was excellent today. Snow started before dawn for a coupla inches. Skied CowPow first for about 10 laps then up the box into some high wind, 40+ sustained gusting into 60's, awesome. About 15 ft. visibility.

    Then went through the ski schooler slalom and stuffed a tip by the last guy; Twisted my knee a little - no good deed goes unpunished.

    Early season skiing at the village just turned back on. The bowl opened thin but with this windstorm, it'll fill in a firm packed layer; except maybe some ridgetop scouring.
    The Wind is our friend here.
    1st box tomorrow should yield some excellent conditions.

    My favorite conditions are anytime I can walk on the Tram. Today you could have made 30 laps anywhere on the hill and not once have another person on your chair or gondy car. Maybe 20 on big red.

    Just rolled in with the Mrs. Had a great day at Big Sky with ~4” but windy AF which made for some wicked stashes.

    Sounds like a run up the tram in the morning is the best place to start? Any other must-skis tomorrow?

    Welcome to town! Heard it's quite windy in the village, hopefully it will refill and buff everything. If you are up for an inbounds hike, it looked like headwall was still fresh near end of day, not sure it even opened today

    Anyone have a preferred taxi company for a ride from the airport? Younger daughter & I are getting in noon-ish on Saturday. We only get to ski Saturday afternoon & Sunday, then back to California (boo). Mrs. Suit and older daughter will already be there, but they've made it clear they're not picking us up.

    A1 Taxi has been good to me for airport trips. 307-690-3900

    New snow was a nice refresh but lots of wind effect up high. Looking like I'll be around the village on Sunday. Gonna mostly be a weekend warrior this winter.

    PM Tye, I think he drives one a day a week for fun so he'd probably have some insight or maybe even be available.

    After the big wind/ snow event on wed., the vill has done some healing. R bowl was 3-8 inches of windblown chalk today. Better than yesterday as the new snow hadn't quite bonded to the firm under. If the whole hill was like that, you'd never stop turning. Off piste and trees are better facing north, still soft. Tons of terrain open; OB begins to offer up some lines too.

    A better than average opening for us by all accounts. We're often a little slow to start.

    and yeah, it was dead again today. about 25 ppl a box.

    Warm and beautiful on the summit , hung out and scoped the 3 lines some friends had just pasted on Pucker face.

    Have a couple furnished rooms for rent on the Westbank through June. Not the cheapest, but great location and pretty decent place. Pm if you know anyone looking. Thanks!

    That is some pretty good pre-holidays conditions at "The Village" [/cool guy]. I've got the Bear Baby/Djongo tour queued more for the Winter of IKON. Let me know if you see any paragliders flying at the ski area.

    You do realize there are two ski areas in Jackson Hole and jhmr has been called "the village" for eons...because that's it's name. It's not cool, it's just it's name floggy googles.

    fuck...I thought I was doing it right. Me and Sick Rick were kicking it is the VC circa '94 after explaining that the earpieces to your Smith's go over your hat and how to properly lean your skis up in the tram line and sit on the rail, he went on to explain that your don't say "ski are" when in Jackson (or is it "The Tetons" or "Jackson Hole". I get so confused.). I thought the proper nomenclature is:

    "the pass"
    "the park"
    "the village"
    "the king"
    "the 'ghee"

    Is that still right?

    College roommate grew up in Jackson (you reading this, WyMont?)... he always referred to JHMR as the "Mountain Resort", with emphasis on Mount.... MOUNTainresort

    Is that not still a thing? Now we got bbear and Djongo saying "Vill"... shifting vernacular, how's a jong to keep up?

    Just to add more confusion. We always referred to it as “ the Hole” or “J-Hole”.

    I always enjoy the crusty locals that insist on calling it the "ski corp". They were jaded when you could buy a place in Wilson for 5k (which is what my last rental sold for in 1988 - 400 sq ft studio but still) and bitched it was too expensive.

    Affectionately referred to as "The Bung", short for "The Bunghole".

    Nope. Just up in Grand Lake doing a little punch trim, huffing 2 stroke, watching the locals day drink. Why?

    Back to Jackson Hole. Anyone been out in The Park yet? Wondering how conditions are.
