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 […]

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 […]

Avy Avoidance: Always Look Uphill!

Here is little look at a very close call by a couple guys skiing the Northwest Passage in Granite Canyon and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort backcountry during last year’s epic snow season. It looks like on this day there was some considerable avalanche danger and one skier came one turn away from getting munched. […]

Thank You Saint John

Today on Mount Saint John. Click all photos for larger image. Well, I think I need to have my head examined for not heeding my own advice to pull in the reigns this weekend due to a current questionable snowpack at the higher elevations here in the Tetons. Sometimes though, the lure to try and […]

Teton Skiers: Choose Your Line Wisely

Good news Teton skiers! It looks like spring might finally be moving in to the Jackson Hole region next week. (Maybe?) I know it has been a snowy winter and most folks are chomping at the bit to get into the high peaks and hit that line they have been thinking about all season. And […]

Kip Garre Dies in Split Mountain Avalanche

It is with great regret that I report that ski mountaineer and Tahoe resident Kip Garre, and his girlfriend Allison Kreutzen, were recently killed on Spit Mountain in the Eastern Sierra outside of Bishop, CA. Reports indicate that the pair were caught in an avalanche and took a long fall in the Split Couloir. The […]
