VIDEO: Cam Fitzpatrick and Friends Tear Up Jackson Hole

Given all the big mountain terrain in and around the resort, Jackson Hole isn’t all that known for its park and pipe scene. But with toasty temps in March softening up the snow into the perfect consistency for slushy park laps, the jump lines down low and side hits on the upper mountain became the perfect playground for the This Is Us In crew to throw down. Join Cam Fitzpatrick, Brian Selmer, Jake Johnson, Neo Emery, Aaron Hallenbeck, Ace Emery, and Cooper Branham as they rip all over the
