The tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain (elevation 10,449’) at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort made its last run of the winter on Sunday, April 3. The closing of the Village at this time marks the beginning of the end of ski season for many in Jackson. Lift access is over; the snow line in the Tetons starts to rise. Skis get waxed; pants are finally washed and packed away. Skiing is still possible but left mostly to a few adventurers who battle dirt trails and long approaches. That is, until the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. On this day in late May the tram opens up for summer and for a brief moment ski season is back. And if you plan your day right, you can enjoy a rare day that includes a ski session in the morning and your favorite summer activity in the afternoon - all within 20 minutes of each other.

When you call Jackson Hole your second home, going big into Corbet’s comes as part of the package. Well, at least if your name is Coen Bennie-Faull. For two years running, Bennie-Faull has competed in Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Kings and Queens of Corbet’s, chucking his carcass into the couloir like none other.
