    The first time he gave me a bump at the beginning of the season I thought he was fucking with me. But time after time the stoke is unsurpassed. Reminds of Balki from Perfect Strangers.
    His name is Franz, he is from Lima.
    He is SO funny. He just bought a DH bike to bring home, I would love to ride with him.
    Sorry about your pooch, Django, it sometimes is harder than losing a human, due to the unconditional love factor.

    It's not all hate. I think it's normal to observe and want to discuss a fairly major change and the impact with others in the community.
    the usual hating suspects will hate but they were also hatin before the ikon invasion.
    Some of my best friends have ikon passes and one silver lining is that I don't constantly have visitors asking us for vouchers now, which is nice
    I'd say for the most part we're still hospitable AF unless you are a dumbass in which case you deserve to be lampooned as has always been the case here

    it will be interesting to see how mgmt addresses the obvious outcry of the Jackson experience being altered by the increase in skiers though. Will visitors not return in the same magnitude next yr bc of the crowds?
    Or are we still less crowded for the most part than most other resorts?
    anyone have a crystal ball or know a soothsayer?
    Either way at least we all now have Djongo on the board to show maggots the way of the local. and me on the weekends.
    Although this weekend I'm heading to the desert to celebrate our 1 yr anniversary and escape the snowbanks
    was surprised andrew wanted to leave the snow, but I think he's honestly pooped from the never ending deluge of snow this yr. aaaannnd it's dumping again today
    Enjoy it kids!

    edit to add that I do like that sticker - funny stuff there
    Your husband is cooler then the rest of us, we know...

    A Hoser needs some help!
    Hey Mags. I know this is a long shot but I figured I’d fire it up here and see if you could help. We’re down here mostly backcountry skiing and a buddy blew one of the pins off the toe piece of his plum bindings, so unskiable, and we noticed the other binding toe piece has a loose pin that is going to go any time. We’ve got one full day left and maybe a quick lap on Saturday morning before we head home. Does anyone have a old touring set up in the 175-182 range that we could borrow for a day and a bit? His bsl is 300mm. I know it’s a lot to ask. Or an old pair of plum guides or old dynafit with the same bolt patterns as the old plum guides.

    Any recommendation of a place that rents touring gear in town?

    Just looking to salvage the last day and a bit.
    Any help would be much appreciated and of course beers/cash/high fives would be part of the deal.

    Wilson Backcountry Sports rents touring gear and can likely help you out.

    A group of skiers violated a closure at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort on Thursday, and now two of them are spending the night out in Granite Canyon.

    Grand Teton National Park rangers are coming up with a plan to reach the two stranded skiers, according to public information officer Denise Germann.

    Their ski partners reported them lost to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort ski patrol on Thursday afternoon. Resort ski patrol called park rangers and Teton County Search and Rescue to assist in the search. Search and Rescue flew a helicopter over the area just before sundown, but didn't pinpoint the stranded party's exact location, incident commander KC Bess said.
    leave them there. Obviously they're fully capable of getting out themselves, right? SAR & GTNP rangers risking their lives for this shit?

    You go out there and get in trouble, you get yourself out of trouble. If not you wait for the conditions to permit a rescue, your dumb ass shouldn’t put other people at risk.

    put their faces and names in the paper when it's over. good old fashioned public shaming. we put people on the inmate list when they drink too much and get behind the wheel or pass out and piss their pants on the sidewalk. if they flagrantly violate a closure and put SAR in a position like this, fuck em and everyone should know. shaming shouldn't happen for most avalanches or SAR rescues, but this is just disrespectful.

    good point, I probably wrote that too quickly without knowing a single thing, in classic internet fashion. I sincerely hope that they're alive.

    For sure: no respect for damn near everything. Garbage thrown on the ground, jumping thru lift-lines like no else is even in line, stopping right in the middle of a run, not looking before jumping onto the cat track....I could go on...no respect for the mountain like the people who commit to being here.

    Obviously its not everyone but when you give free tickets away EVERYONE shows up.
