Do The Right Thing

Considering the Jackson Hole region is predicted to receive 2-3′ of snow in the next 24-48hrs, along with wind gusts approaching 100mph, we will no doubt see a spike in the avalanche danger.  Because of this, I think this little avalanche and skiing safety video is appropriate, and I like it because it isn’t as […]

Avalanches Kill 4 at Stevens/Snoqualmie Pass

Just want to send out some positive vibes to my backcountry brethren in the PNW, where two separate avalanches at Stevens Pass and Snoqualmie Pass took the lives of 3 skiers and 1 snow boarder today. With this year’s sketchy snowpack, these incidents seems like they could have happened anywhere in the west. The avalanche […]

4-Hour Couloir Survival Story

You may remember last year, when Jimmy Chin, Jeremy Jones and Xavier de la Rue were in town trying to get some footage for the movie Further.  Well, conditions weren’t the best for those guys (if I recall, it was during a warm spell, and unfortunately, Jimmy got caught in quite a long avalanche skiing […]

Taylor Mountain Avalanche

Taylor Mountain avalanche, January 24, 2012. Today, a highly experienced local avalanche guru caused a stir on Taylor Mountain and the Coal Creek region on the west side of Teton Pass when an intentionally triggered avalanche resulted in more than he bargained for. The slide grew in size quickly, pulling out far to the skier’s […]

Props To Teton Pass WYDOT Crew

While you have been sleeping the past few days, WYDOT crews have been working their butts off trying to get Teton Pass’s Highway 22 open and safe for car travel. As you can see in the photo below, with all the new snow Jackson Hole have been getting, this hasn’t been an easy task and […]

Beartooth Survival Story

I’m not much of a dog dude, but this sure is an amazing story about Ole, a little corgi’s will to live after an avalanche took his owner’s life (RIP David Gillard of Bozeman, MT) up in Cooke City, MT, on New Year’s Eve day. Pretty impressive little guy and thanks to BeartoothPowder.com for sharing […]

Sierra Slayer in the House…and the Snowpack

Click all photos for larger image. Considering that there is virtually zero snow in the Sierras right now, and not really to my surprise, legendary Sierra Slayer Glen Poulsen and friend Sarah hightailed it to Jackson on New Year’s Eve for a few days of skiing in the Tetons. Unfortunately, I’m smack dab in the […]

Waaaaayyyy Remote Trigger

Barring multiple avalanche warnings and overall sketchy snow conditions, it’s petty hard to sit around the house or wait in lift-lines with a bazillion other skiers, and I’ve been trying to get out into the backcountry and ski what is available…without getting killed in the process. After getting denied and turning around at 8k’ in […]

New Teton Mobile Avalanche/Weather Forecast Site

Just in time for the epic avalanche cycle we are about to enter is the release of a new mobile avalanche and weather website for Teton County, called JHAvi.com.  You might ask what makes this site better than the BTNF 7AM forecast that gets emailed to your phone, I mean it doesn’t get any more […]

Johno Verity: Avalanche

I just thought I’d share this video of an avalanche UK snowboarder Johno Verity was caught in while filming in New Zealand a few years ago. After a few close calls last year (like this and this), I’m pretty much scared shitless of avalanches these days (which might be a good thing?), but I’m hoping […]

Ford Couloir/East Face Avalanche.

Just a little PSA, as I saw this on Turkey Day. The East Face and Ford Couloir of the Grand Teton slid and sent debris all the way to the meadows. The Cave Couloir also slid. Both appeared to have happened naturally, maybe on Monday or Tuesday…hard to tell though. Avalanche crowns on the Grand […]

Chalk and Ski

Well, it appears as though things are starting to shape-up up here as-far-as coverage goes and this latest wave of moisture will really help open up some more terrain to get the season going. Even though some locations out there have a thick windslab and depth hoar layer that could be rather hazardous, I was […]

Ullr Mobile Avalanche Safety iPhone App

I wish this mobile iPhone application was Android compatible (word is Android version could be ready by mid-February) since it would be fun to play around with this newly released Ullr Mobile Avalanche Safety Tool that uses avalanche science principles, along with all the technology built into an iPhone (camera, GPS, compass, gyroscope, comms) to […]
