Awesome views of the north side of Buck Mountain down to Phelps Lake. Looks like there are still some icebergs in Timberline Lake too.
I’ve always told myself that I was going to wait until I was 40 to seriously think about taking up the sport of paragliding. I’m not totally sure why, but I think it is because I hear a lot of people say that it tends take over your life and I guess I want my life to be more about skiing for the time being. Jackson is a great spot for flying, so I think it is inevitable sooner or later.
I have a lot of friends that fly and one of them sent me a couple photos he took of the North side of Buck Mountain during a recent flight over the Tetons. It is cool to see these lines in the heat of the summer, with no snow in them and from this perspective. I guess it would only be cooler if it was winter.
I’ve skied all three of these couloirs…well…almost, and couple of the trips are logged here on TetonAT.com. I skied the Newk Couloir back in the day…before digi-cams and I unfortunately don’t have any pics. I guess that means I’ll just have to go an ski it again.
