“A Life Ascending” This Thursday

If you missed the screening of “A Life Ascending” when it played in Jackson Hole last winter as part of the Banff Mountain Film Festival, don’t fret…as you will have another chance to see this great film on Thursday, March 1st, at 7PM in the Snow King Teton Room. Tickets are available at Skinny Skis […]

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 […]

Propulski…Spring Loaded Dynafits

Le…Propulski. I knew it was only a matter of time before someone had the guts to try something like this.  Introducing…Propulski!  (English only readers, click here for Google translated web page.) Coming out of France, Propulski is a removable spring that is used with tech AT bindings (seems like they might work with some telemark […]

Local Sledneck Vids

Well, since skiing couloirs in the Teton sun doesn’t seem to rile much interest, you may find these vids from our very own local sled-necks interesting. The first is from a guy riding around the Idaho/Wyoming border (maybe close to the national park boundary?) and nearly drops big when a cornice breaks under him. The […]

Will The Hossack-MacGowan Route Get Skied Again?

While skiing in Glacier Gulch yesterday, I found myself staring up at and day-dreaming about skiing the Hossack-MacGowan route on the north side of the Grand Teton.   I think it has been about 14 years since the route had its last (2nd) descent, and although we have had some really phat snow years since then, […]

Maruelli Radical Binding Upgrade

So far, I’ve been having success with the pin upgrade for the Dynafit Radical bindings.  I’ve had zero auto-rotations with the heel-piece since swapping out the pin, and no cracks or brakes have developed in the plastic housing.  I’ve heard Dynafit is still working out another fix for the problem that will be worked into […]

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 […]

Mini-Ice Age?

Paging Ptor Spricenieks…Ptor Spricenieks to the courtesy phone please. If you’ve followed this blog and the comments at all over the years, you know that on most weather related posts, Ptor Spricenieks usually chimes in about solar flares and other weather anomalies that I can’t even pronounce, never mind understand. So, I’m wondering what he […]

More OR: Arc’teryx, Dri-Down, La Sportiva, Pamoca, Ortovox

Today is my last day at the trade show and I’m headed back to Jackson. With 36” of new snow in the past couple days and 4-6’ avalanche crowns being reported, the drive should be interesting. Luckily there looks to be lull in the action this afternoon and tonight, before the snow ramps up again […]

Alpine Slides Revisited

The guy in this video riding the Mieders Alpine Slide with no brakes has nerves of steel and only makes a peep on a few epic corners and drops. Maybe that Snowbird Alpine Slide wasn’t such a bad idea after all?   Sure makes the Snow King alpine slide look…ummm, nevermind.  Imagine one from the […]

Dynafit Radical Binding New Heel Pin Upgrade

To-Pin or Not-To-Pin…that is the question. (And I don’t mean telemark.) Alas, after a couple weeks in limbo, Dynafit has now released the new Radical binding heel-pin upgrade. The pin is made of brass and has a skinny end, as well as a think end with a small ring indented into it.  When installing the […]
