October 6th 2019, trying to get as many turns in before the end of this decade! Going to usher in the new season on Cody, stoked to have some motivated friends to get after it early season and not being worried about hopping a few rocks!

Finding lift-accessed skiing in early October is tough in the Northern Hemisphere. There are a few resorts open in Europe, but North America's lifts generally don't start spinning until at least mid-October. Jackson Hole doesn't start winter operations until late-November, but TGR's very own Tim Durtschi took advantage of JHMR's last day of "summer" tram ops to shred some pow on Cody Peak.

NOAA is calling for upwards of a foot for places like Loveland and Vail, and up to 16 inches for Steamboat. With Keystone and Arapahoe Basin already spinning lifts, this might be a fun weekend for those first turns of
If you haven’t watched Dash Longe’s latest DPS Cinematic short – shot and edited by Sweetgrass Productions – we suggest you do so. Right now. It’s an ode to skiing close to home, pushing the limits of what’s possible in new ways, and balancing daily “real” life with getting after it in the mountains. In truth, it’s something we can all relate to, no matter the life we live. RELATED: Kai Jones - 12 Years Old and Living The Dream Aside from being a one-of-a-kind look at skiing in the
Forget carving pumpkins, there’s snow in the mountains! This weekend the Rocky Mountain region received enough snow that people were pulling out their touring equipment. From the photos and videos, it’s clear they weren’t being overzealous, the coverage was legitimate. In Utah there was about 14" of fresh snow, and Jackson scored about 16" of freshies.
