This backpack cam shot is my favorite so far this season, mostly because it shows more of the valley, and oh yeah…sickbird POWDER!!! It’s been a snowy last few days up here in JH, which has been awesome, and if you could withstand the 2-3 second long whumps in the snowpack while breaking trail, there [...]
It’s amazing that someone can survive when they have a depressed skull fracture, a partially collapsed lung and fractures to both C2 and C7 vertebrae…let alone when this happens while skiing in the backcountry. Props to the Jackson Hole Ski Patrol for a speedy response (reportedly only 20mins from the report of the injury to [...]
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 [...]

Yesterday, Jackson Hole News and Guide reported that Better Wings Entertainment out Los Angeles has an interest in producing a television series here in Jackson…and more specific…at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. No doubt a huge score marketing-wise for JHMR. The series, [...]

See, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has had over 90,000 tram riders this summer (its second busiest) and to celebrate, they are giving away free lodging. So head on out to JHMR and [...]
About once a month, someone suggests that I put together an updated Teton Range backcountry skiing guidebook. Some big time publishers included. IMHO however, with Tom Turiano’s: Teton Skiing, A History and Guide and Select Peaks of Greater Yellowstone, as well as Jackson and Ortenburger’s: A Climbers Guide to the Teton Range, I feel like [...]
Even though I’m not much of a climber, never mind a boulderer, I can really see how the Teton Boulder Project would benefit the Jackson Hole Community as a whole. Please come and learn about this project and hear some of the greatest alpinists of our time, Jack Tackle, Conrad Anker and Steve House, talk [...]
