Lines on the east side of the Dana Plateau.

I’m back in Jackson for a few days before heading out on another skiing road trip. Here are a few pictures from skiing the Ripper Chute on Dana Plateau on a “rest day”. The Dana Plateau is a must-do for skiers looking to get into some fun couloirs with a minimal amount of approach. From what I know, the Sierras snowpack is anywhere from 130-175% of average right now…so it should be skiing well for quite some time. Get some if you can!!!
