TetonAT Season Video Recap

Live To Ski Weekend Video

I put this video together of the three days of skiing that was my weekend…I think a couple weeks ago now. Nothing too outlandish, and it starts with a couple pics from a nice ski tour to No Woods Basin. The meat of the footage is a mission in the northern end of the park. [...]

TetonAT.com Videos: Teewinot Southwest Couloir

I called in sickter to work the other day and got out with some friends to ski the Southwest Couloir of Teewinot. I’ve been enjoying skiing in Glacier Gulch this year, and have skied the Southwest Couloir a number of times in the past, but it’s just so darn beautiful in the area that I [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

Skiing Teewinot’s Southeast Couloir

MAN…I have been having some great days skiing in the Tetons lately! Last week, it was warm spring-like conditions on sunny aspects, and now…powder and wind! It looks like it’s gonna dump huge this week, but I’m glad I got another warm sunny day skiing above the clouds on Teewinot with Kim Havell and John [...]

Static Peak East Face…Early

Teewinot Video Stokage

Last Friday, I got out with Reed Finlay to ski an obscure line on the southwest side of Teewinot Mountain that drops down into Glacier Gulch. I’m not really sure what to call this route, but we dubbed it the “Son of Southwest”, after Teewinot’s more prominent and more often skied Southwest Couloir, that lies [...]

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 [...]

TetonAT Video: Okie’s Thorn Couloir

Here’s is a little video stoke (it’s a little slow and mind-numbing) from skiing Okie’s Thorn Couloir last week with Reed Finlay. It’s a pretty obscure line, but the couloir sits directly skier’s left of the Dike Couloir, a popular descent on Garnet Canyon/Glacier Gulch loop-tours. It also runs below a sharp pinnacle, called Okie’s [...]

Suprise Pow Day

Blue-sky and powder is no disappointment…YEAH!!! Man, it was nice to have a little surprise powder day today and the sun even burned through the clouds to make it that much more stellar! There sure seemed to be more new snow than the 2-3 inches reported this morning…at least where the wind blew it into [...]

Ka-POW!

Making the best of it, as Randosteve finds some soft snow at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort today.

Busy, Busy, Busy…

Moonrise on Teton Pass, 12/8/11. Sorry for the lack of content lately, but the Rondo-itinerary has been very packed over the past couple weeks and I’m currently smack dab in the middle of a four day photo shoot. It is slim pickings as far as powder goes, since it hasn’t snowed much in the last [...]

Early Season in the South Couloir of the East Prong

The fun part about skiing early season is that some lines are more technical and less filled in than they are the rest of the winter due to the low snowpack. The not-so-fun part about skiing early season is that some lines are more technical and less filled in than they are the rest of [...]

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 [...]

Day 3 Fun!

Randosteve dropping in on the Table Mountain break. Click all photos for larger image. This is my last full week off of work before it is back to the grindstone to make some more mula. I had a horrible day skiing at Targhee a couple days ago and it was probably the worst skiing conditions [...]

Nice to Get That Out of the Way

Randosteve skis the Cave Couloir in Garnet Canyon. Click all photos for larger image. Getting ready to and going out skiing for the first day of the season can sometimes be a bit of a junk show and rather stressful, so it’s always nice to get it out of the way and dial things in. [...]

More Grand Teton Speed Porn

Well, since someone (Brian Story) came within 3 minutes of breaking the Grand Teton speed descent record this weekend, as well as an impressive time on a Grand, Middle and South Teton ski descent link-up (Nathan Brown and Zahan Billamoria, 10:39), this video of Bryce Thatcher and Creighton King’s battle for the summer ascent and [...]

Grand Teton Ski Descent Speed Record Set?

UPDATE: Today, Utah residents Jared Inouye, Andy Dorais and Jason Dorais teamed up for a group solo ski descent of the Ford/Stettner Route and set a new bar with a time of 5:17 car-to-car. These guys are pretty speedy rando-races and the time will be very hard to beat. See the comments section of this [...]
