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 […]
Making the best of it, as Randosteve finds some soft snow at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort today.
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 […]
Skier’s on North Couloir of Albright. Click all photos for larger image. After a windy day on 10,696, the weather broke for a bit on Sunday and I was on my own. I got a slow start out of the condo, but was on the trail a little before 9am, following a skin track up […]
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. I’ve only skied […]
If you’ve been out skiing lately, make that…if you’ve been out skiing away from everyone else lately, I’m sure you’ve seen a ton of wildlife. Here in Jackson Hole, it seems like everything is on the move right now and on my last tour I saw about 15 moose, 10 deer, an ermin, 3 bald […]
Just some classic Teton pics from getting out early with my dad the past few days. Moulton Barn.
Randosteve slides into Corbet’s Couloir at JHMR. After well over four years of not riding a single ski lift to ski (at least for fun), I broke my streak and scored on a nice ski day at JHMR yesterday. The avalanche forecast reported 16” of new snow in the last 24 hours and considering I’ve […]
Randosteve gets his first turns of the 2009-10 ski season at Grand Targhee. When it snows 12-18″ on Oct 1st at Grand Targhee…there’s no way I’m not going to get out the door and investigate. Randokitty only had to mention the word ‘skiing’ once…and our trail running plans were quickly put on the back burner […]
Randosteve gets down in the Gros Ventre Slide. Yeah baby! That’s what I’m talking about…Steep Tech…skinny…long skis…Alpine Trekkers! That’s the way is was for me back in the day, touring around with Team Extreme (me and my JHMR bros Reed Finlay and Chris Onufer). At least that’s what I remember, especially from this great day […]
By the looks of the Jackson Hole area webcams (see bottom right sidebar), we’ve just got some valley fog going on this morning. A little dusting of fresh snow on our side, but as usual…a bit more coverage for our neighbors over the hill in Idaho. My knee is killing me today (and last night) […]
After returning from the big mountain ranges of British Columbia and Rogers Pass, the Tetons began to feel a bit on the small side. However, all it really takes is a step away from the norm to find solitude and vast expanses of new terrain. Here are some pics from a tour last week getting […]
I’ve been holding my breath all day today in fear of an avalanche incident on the Pass or at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Unfortunately my thoughts have come true. The details are still very sketchy, but the word is that at least two substantial in-bounds avalanches occurred today at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. One […]
Though it’s just a start, I feel a lot better after today’s weather.
