This last week I was up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming hunting spring snow in the mighty Teton range. Though the weather was a bit more unsettled than we could have hoped for, we still managed to slay two really nice long lines. Here’s a few shots from the trip.
4+ inches of fresh powder coated this entire cruisey 4,000 vertical foot descent. Spring skiing at its best!
With long, tedious approaches and massive vertical rise, spring ski touring in the Tetons is a demanding endeavor.
Our last day in Jackson Hole was spent checking out the impressive National Museum of Wildlife Art, followed by soaking our tired legs in some wild hot springs up towards Yellowstone. What a nice way to end the trip!
(Back in May 2009 I spent a week riding a bunch of big lines in the Tetons; see those photos here).
