    You guys sure have a nice set-up. On Monday before I left, my Victor friend and I did two laps on the pass. The parking lot was full but there were only a handful of tracks in what we skied (a decent amount of which skied bottomless), and it’s pretty nice to ski 5000’+ of descent for less than 2500’ of bootpack/skinning.

    Plus it seemed like everybody knew each other; my buddy knew people in both cars we hitched in and then ran into another old friend of hers on the pass.

    I know it’s a bit of a rat race for most people to stay there, but man, pretty nice place to be a skier. I mean, obviously, but the more I go the more I appreciate what’s unique about it.

    Another skier takes a long scary ride today south of the village. SE shoulder of Taylor was powder over weak crusts over facets. Classic "scary Moderate" conditions.

    funny that we were just talking about that area being a dumbass magnet

    Lots of rocks popping up. Major runs are getting scraped clean.

    Feels like 8000' is a notable division between fat and bony, at least on the pass and general area. In the low elevation world, there's a lot of facets and not much else. Above 8 there's still buried surface hoar and nsfx, but not much of a slab on top of them, so no consistent propagation, except in crucial spots like Broken Branch etc. Sounds like we should tune up our avalanche eyeballs if we get an inch of SWE as predicted for Saturday into Sunday.

    Skied w/TFT and the special lady friend today. Good skiing if not a bit firm. And busy.

    Pushed hard early for laps before the crowd. R bowl was testy to start with a skiff of cold dry sticky as hell in the troughs. Subsequent trams treated us to excellent carvy chalk as we trolled for more hashed underfoot.

    Cheyenne woods, Sub laps, a few ganjalas, Casper laps and a Teton lap for measure. Fun but ready for some weather.

    I do enjoy skiing with Baby Bear. Solid all arounder methinks: Skis strong, giggles and very safety conscious.

    We plan on first box sunday so meet us! Also shooting for the 6 showing of DM's movie...

    Spot on IMO, small pockets that can pop and take you into bad places seem to be the thing to strongly avoid.

    Fun day on the south side of the pass! 4 laps on different aspects and elevations.

    Would definitely stay lower angle and away from convex features - had some cracks propagate several feet cutting across a NE aspect, and a big wumpf mid turn on a SW aspect.

    Lots of tracks and large groups out today, but there’s still bottomless and fresh turns to be had our there. My love affair with the Tetons continues...

    A few pics from today!

    What a day. JHMR needs to start paying Djongo and BBear for their guiding services.

    Djongo - thanks for the morning, one for the record books. I agree with your claim that we had the best morning out of everybody on the mountain. L is fired up and we are both in the tram line early tomorrow.

    Bbear - such a blast skiing with your crew. Couldn’t ask for a better group to ski with. Apres brews were killer too...

    Pretty quiet in Mail Cabin. Deep for sure, and a bit cracky where the wind hit. But where the wind didn't hit...ha!

    If the locals are still braving the holiday crowds, any chance I could join in on these groups starting Wednesday?

    Well hell, another funday of pow with TFT and his Special lady friend. After he and I had a great am yesterday we 3 just did OB laps today puttering around in shin to kneedeep for miles. Easy adventures in the sidecountry...

    Honestly I bet we connected 15 miles of boottop pow. And then some deeper too. I got stalled in a hip deep drift for lack of speed and fall line, oooof!

    Had a perfect front flip to burial, getting jacked on a hidden rock. Still low tide out there. Fun...

    Mrs. TFT impressed me today, skiing in good but challenging deep pow. It's good to see someone who wants to get better, actually try, and show results in a day. Solid.

    For the number of tourists, trams were pretty quick. prolly 2 car wait max. Heard yesterday was the record skier day at 10,300.

    Passholer's assessment was spot on regarding snow changes.
    Folks on the first box were amped for more of yesterday but no, not without some advanced looking. We worked many aspects today finding deep windblown pockets all over. The wind escalation and directional shift was something.

    Swerve - we missed ya the other morning, Looked hard in the maze and after the dock loaded to see if you were on Box2. Knew if you were there, you were gonna want to bust a move anyway. See ya at next chance.

    Skeeze - pm me and we can try and connect for some laps...

    Hiked up and over Glory today, skied some great SW facing shots above Coal Creek. NW shots in the same area were wind hammered with punchy snow and difficult to ski.

    Had the place to ourselves. Got a hell of a workout breaking trail up there! Hope somebody gets to reuse our skin track... Plenty of knee deep settled pow on the SW pitches that skied fast.

    Loved the powder skiing, but that high speed luge track exiting out of Coal Creek was a friggin hoot too!

    Great day in the resort. Casper Bowl and the Crags opened, so I lapped that all day. A bit wind affected, but I didn’t cross many tracks.
