    Just want to shout out to Djongo for the discount passes (and alwayslost) to the Ghee and leading my crew around a bit the other day at the Vil. Didn't see you on Sunday but worked out just fine. Amazing conditions the last few days, not sure I'm going to bother skiing in CO after that...

    Had to take today off to be with my ailing old pet. Some shots of snowloads; Some mags have been here to bunker 420 and will recognize the neighborhood.

    Been a hell of a cycle and what we needed as we were just barely on par so far. Been holding back here and there to be safe as the vill was not complete yet. Now we're there. Everything has filled in and the fun factor just went up for the season.
    Invite my mag friends to come hang, maybe kick it at the bunker. (per my extreme vetting )

    - Rudy, sorry I missed you guys sunday, the crowd chased me away. But skiing was excellent and I knew youse guys didn't need much hep.
    Did you get to the pass for a lap? I was concerned as it was a total clusterfuck county wide yesterday...
    Hope to make turns with you and Ev again. That boy's a solid skier.
    And yer Yosemite bud Dan, liked him plenty, a gamer fosho. Saw Virgie the next day with Bechler, her boy. Tiny world here.


    Yeah, about skiing GC today. Only the most skilled local knowledge should have been in there. Days of megaloading and that place is deadly. We don't call it the Darkside cuz it's shaded. And FWIW, if ya don't know a safe line down milelong, then you are in trouble. That is a massive fucking ride down.
    And so, telling you the Easy way down from top of Teton lift is highly unlikely.

    And yo - SVS - man it's shaping up for ya. Speed factors just jumped up. Forecast is snow showers after you arrive.

    Back to the grindstone tomorrow...

    Coming down for a week from canukistan on Saturday. Stationed on the Idaho side.w will get a couple days at GT, and two for sure at JH and a pass day. Generally have been coming every year for 12 years. Have to switch off here and there for the 4yo watching session these days.
    If anyone wants the shred a lap in bounds or out any where or have a beer I won't hold you back.
    Stoked for the forcast.

    Happy to return the favor up north.
    Il be there skiing Sunday to Thursday then heading to big sky. (Making use of the collective)

    This incredibly steep and dangerous North facing couloir may not actually be a mile, but it's very long. It drops down into Granite Canyon. Avalanche danger is incredibly high, and during the long exit out of Granite Canyon to the resort, you'll face a path that is threatened by numerous other avalanche chutes above it.

    Deepest day at JHMR for me possibly ever? It was just consistently deep, every run OB we found really deep snow. Iím really excited for the snow pack to stabilize in a day or two. So many things that werenít skiable last week will now be in and fun.

    SAR got called a second time today. Someone got into trouble in 4 Pines at the end of the day. Heli came in to get him.

    I got a very hard no with the JHMR to Aspen sale when I asked about it to some buddies who work in very middle (probably lower but their egos think other wise) management. In the past when the rumors come out about JHMR, they always shrug it off and joke how interesting that would be. They have never really shot it down like this before. I thought that was interesting. If itís Aspen that bought the resort, I think thatís the best of the worst case scenario. If KSL/Alterra falls apart, at least we will keep some independence being connected to Aspen. It is what is it, Iíll still ski better and deeper pow then the ikon idiots.

    High Avalanche danger, let's ski big steep terrain. Apparently that's the Jhole way.

    🤷♂️ thatís how some people roll? We decided to stay away from a bunch of big steep stuff due to the associated danger, and still found really deep good turns all day long.

    Yeah?


    No.

    Your assessment skills of the actual situation, are questionable.

    Great day! So the sale rumors are true? I haven’t seen it officially anywhere.

    Explain to me what I'm getting wrong. There weren't people skiing big steep terrain? The avalanche danger wasn't high?

    2 people out of how many thousands?

    That speaks for all in JH?

    Yeah, people actually ski gnarly shit when it dumps up here, it's rad. You should try it after you enhance the assessment skills, cuz' see that's what's likely to keep you safe.

    How do you not see the disconnect between people fucking up individually and everyone else who skis here?

    For all we know it was 2 clucks from Florida and Texas. But how they did it was " the Jhole way " . Fuck that.
