This weekend is the US Ski Mountaineering National Championships to be held at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Race starts at 8am on Saturday, January 7th, […]

Early Season JHMR Deal

I just wanted to send out this PSA to anyone that may be interested in a great deal for lodging and ski tickets to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort during the early season (thru Dec 23rd). Since JH has some of the best conditions in the lower 48 right now, as well as being named […]

Bears, Bears, Everywhere…Still!!!

Bears in the skin track. For those that haven’t been paying attention, there has been a major influx of grizzly bears into the southern end of Grand Teton National Park in the past few months. Why they are down here is anyone’s guess, but I would think the gut piles from dead elk (yeah, hunters […]

JHMR 2011/12 Season Pass Prices Announced

With a 25% reduction in the All Mountain Pass (Grand Pass) last season, it’s surprising that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is able to reduce their price by another 5% ($1,195) for the upcoming 2011/12 ski season. Not only will the overall pass price go down, but the number of skier days will increase to 135 […]

Sit-Skier Chris Devlin-Young Skis Corbet’s Couloir

Earlier this week, US Paralympic member Chris Devlin-Young became the first sit-skier to ski JHMR’s legendary Corbet’s Couloir, unaided. Corbet’s was dubbed “America’s Scariest Ski Slope” by USA Today (there is even a play-by-play on how to ski it, at least for people that have function of both of their legs) , and I’m assuming […]

Maybe He Should Have Used Dynafits?

Props to Derek for having the cahones to drop into Central Couloir while it is still a pretty large, mandatory, double-drop air at the bottom. Unfortunately, it appears his alpine setup couldn’t stay on his feet and his ski popped off just as he went for it. Glad he didn’t get hurt.

Jackson Hole FWT Highlights

I was out at JHMR on Saturday for the FWT competition. I was mostly at the base area helping man the Black Diamond booth, one of the title sponsors, but it’s pretty wild to see the lines some of the competitors came up with, both in the Casper and Tower Three venues. Congrats to all […]

JHMR Returns Defective BCA Tracker 2 and Pulls From Retail Shelves

This story has been developing over the past few days, though I first heard hints of problems with certain Backcountry Access Tracker 2s in the ShoutBox in the right sidebar of this blog nearly 2 month ago. (To see the comment, in the ShoutBox, scroll down, hit “Next”, scroll down and hit “Next” again.) At […]

Jackson Hole Has SLC and Denver Beat

I’m pretty sure as far as a ski destination goes, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has both Denver and SLC beat when it comes to the time it takes from when your plane touches down at the airport, to when you are on skis ripping up the slopes. It looks like SLC claims about 1:45, compared […]

I know you think it is WAY too early to be talking about the US Ski Mountaineering National Championship Race, since it usually takes place towards the end of March. But, this year is a World Championship year, so the Jackson Hole event will be a qualifying race for US National Worlds Team and is […]

Open Season at JHMR

That’s what I’m taking about!!! You’d have to live in a cave to not know that Jackson Hole has been getting hammered with snowfall since the beginning of October. The Bridger Teton National Avalanche Center is reporting that 127″ of snow has fallen so far and with a 56″ base at the bottom of Rendezvous […]

Jonesing?

Are you jonesing for some skiing? I sure am…but not enough for 17 turns on an uber dirty patch of snow in September.  At least…not yet.  These tracks are from a TAY’er…I would presume. I saw them riding the tram the other day with my Dad. Anyway, It looks like I will be getting my […]

Raptors Up Close And Personal At JHMR

Great Horned Owl. I’ve always thought two things about the birds of prey I see flying around Jackson Hole, mostly around the riparian areas when I’m floating the Snake River. The first being that if I was to be reincarnated as an animal in my second life (cuz I sure hope I get more than […]
