And he’s been doing it longer than most. Last winter, he headed deep into the woods of B.C. and found a fresh angle to an old zone, doing the usual: blasting endless pillows. The skier takes some time to analyze the new zone and walks us through what it takes to make it all look easy. RELATED: Pillow Popping and

While deep snow and steep pitches are some of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s most valued attributes, they can also cause major problems, like avalanches. Normally, JHMR ski patrol’s extensive experience and a healthy dose of dynamite mitigates any danger. Once in a blue moon, however, there is an in-bounds slide. When that happens, rapidly locating and excavating buried victims is the key to a positive outcome. In those critical moments when an extra few minutes of searching and digging can
