    JACKSON 2022/23 {Tetons, Snakes, Gros Ventre, Winds, Wyoming Range, etc.)

    Welcome to winter 2022-2023 in the Tetons & surrounding ranges!

    Officially the new (water) year begins October 1st. Unofficially it runs from the first real snowfall (and skiing), which is happening right about... now.

    Looking forward to seeing stoke posted by as many different people as possible!

    Here's a pic from March 2022 to get us going:

    Prompted me to look back at my Jan '22 images. For as "horrible" as that month was, it still had a number of enjoyable powder days — just had to be willing to go further afield. Posting a few images for reference of what is possible here even amidst a month of high-pressure:

    The usual suspects around town are hating on early season skiing, which I always find interesting. While you can't eliminate all risk, if you know the zones that are grassy in the summer you can find safer spots to ski.

    Ski slower, be light(er) on one's feet, and generally don't ski like a knucklehead. Yeah, we all know someone who f-ed themself up from an early season incident. It's also possible to just enjoy the walk in early winter air and be ready to ski (skin!) back down the way you came if things don't feel right.

    A big part of the reason I ski early (when nature provides) is to get my boots in the snowpack and watch how it builds from the ground up. I feel like that helps me understand things a bit more as the season progresses.

    Hope everyone who is getting out early or contemplating it has fun & stays safe.

    I was out doing the same the other day, thinking this is way safer than mountain biking most days.

    You’d need a time machine for that.

    It will be interesting to see what this 3rd La NiŮa winter
    will bring. The last two, both La NiŮa, could not have been
    more different.

    Hope to see you there. Stay in touch.

    I messed around with those funky UAN poles at TM the other day while my kid was drooling over new touring gear. Holy fuck it sucks when they are too big/old for rental gear.
    I think I get the draw for touring but canít imagine any application for resort skiing. Might even buy a set when I bust my current poles or leave one in a parking lot. Bound to happen sometime over the season.

    Thanks for the pics UAN!

    I think people use them in the resort to let other people know they backcountry ski

    hahólove that they are ďmy polesĒ when itís not me using them!


    Theyíve provide more fodder for discussion than the snow, the happy skiers, or anything else about the images. That puts my photography in perspective! ;-)

    I know they arenít your poles. Picked up on that over many posts. Just my dry sense of humor.

    Keep up the good work!

    Theyíre great for traversing at ski hills and poling in the flats. I use some Black Crows aluminum ones. I bought them just a little longer than I would normally use inbounds and I wound up using them for touring too.

    Why don't they make them extendable so they can be shortened on the downhill and lengthened on the uphill? All that extra pole above the hand is worthless and could be deemed hazardous. But mostly it just looks silly.

    We've been through all this before... also seems like a tech talk thing.

    Most of us who have had extendable poles know that they add weight and can malfunction (some models were prone to getting stuck, some to slipping). Personally, I just wound up never, ever adjusting them.

    Some skiers choke up on the fly when skiing (I'm not one of them).

    Extra pole above the hand isn't a meaningful hazard. Having a traditional grip makes it hard(er) to plunge the pole in the snow if needed (a ski mountaineering thing).

    These aren't photos of people using them in inbounds terrain.

    Sometimes what looks funny to us is more about our seeing. People looked at me funny in 1999 when I had Igneous make me a pair of 195cm fat skis with pretty straight sidecut. Don't skis need to be shaped??! Don't wide skis need to be short??! (People made fun of my Spatulas in 2003, too!)

    FWIW I agree with you about the looks in (some) photos (bc it's what I'm *used to* seeing).

    This is my last post on the topic. Sorry the poles detract so much from the images! hah
