Mountains all over North America are beginning to open. The Norwest and the Rockies are already getting hammered with storms, and the Midwest and East Coast are covering terrain with a blanket of man-made snow. Wherever you ride, it's finally the time of year you have been waiting for. Out at Windells, where we are lucky enough to have year-round snowboarding, skiing, and skateboarding, we thought we would flashback to a few of our favorite photos from Session 1 last summer. While you are strapping into your board or stepping into your skis, don't forget that once the snow has melted back home, there's still a glacier waiting to be shredded all summer.
Even on a wintery day during Session 1, Tim Humphreys has no problem riding in the foggy clouds. Tim plants on on the hitching post while Windells filmer, Paul Heran gets the shot. p: Darcy Bacha

Lady campers were treated to an icecream party with Burton's entire women's Global Team. Olympians Kelly Clark and Hannah Teter were joined by Natasza Zurek, Gabi Viteri, Spencer O'Brien, and Ellery Hollingsworth. The campers got to ask the professional snowboarders any questions they wanted, about, snowboarding, tricks, and what it's really like to be a female professional snowboarder.
In the 1950's resident cats began disappearing in Sandpoint, Idaho. A local hermit was suspected, and his house searched. Inside, authorities found the bodies and hides of numerous local cats that had gone missing... It was reported that the man enjoyed cat stew, and as a result, was soon hauled off to the asylum and forgotten. Until now. Rumor has it that he has escaped.

Japan or Jackson? Caite Zeliff sampling the Japow like conditions at JHMR last winter. Nic Alegre photo. Every so often, a storm cycle comes through Jackson Hole that is so marvelous it’s cemented in local lore. They’re the kind of weather events that crusty ski bums will tell you about after one too many shots of whiskey. They’ll get this far-off look in their eyes and exclaim, “Remember the January of 2020?” For those of you who weren’t in Jackson during that magical month last year,
As part of the 2020 Winter TGR Grom Comp presented by GoPro, we are stoked to announce the GoPro monthly winners!

All three winners will receive a brand-new GoPro Hero 9 camera, and we’re stoked to see what they’ll capture with it this year! Simon Karroum (Best use of GoPro POV):
