When Avalanche Danger is High, Ski Off a Barn

This winter in Jackson Hole was one for the record books. It was the most recorded snow ever in Rendezvous Bowl and it felt like we went months without seeing any sun.

During their adventures, a stoked landowner invited them to his property to check out what turned into a crazy barn jib. Thayne threw down, putting a unique session in the books.

Reliving the Joy of a 500” Season at Jackson Hole

Reliving the Joy of a 500” Season at Jackson Hole

We just wrapped one hell of a season at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort here in TGR's backyard in Jackson, Wyoming. The 2017-2018 season started with a bang with multiple November powder days, and didn't really let up from there with countless deep days and wild events like the inaugural Kings and Queens of Corbet's making the season one to remember. In a wonderful coincidence, JHMR had a storybook ending–the resort was sitting at a notch over 490" of snow on the season before a closing day
