Backcountry Kicker Sesh Part II

After our last kicker session in the Jackson Hole backcountry, we decided it needed to be about twice the size in order to get better shots. Riders David Duffy and Andy Jardine spent over five ours building up a new beast. We headed out yesterday morning to get some shots. The inversion layer was a bit higher than I would have preferred, but we still came out with some success.

Surprise Powder at the Village

What was forecasted as one inch from flurries ended up turning into five inches of powder...with sunshine. I woke up late today, as I'm trying to kick this cold that is coming on, but still got out to Teton Village for some freshies. Definitely enjoyed the ride!

Barely anyone here.

This is Jackson Hole

On a chilly morning that hit well below -10 degrees, I decided to drive up to Grand Teton National park and get my nature fill in...not that I don't spend enough time outside as it is...but there is something about driving through beautiful landscape in my car while listening to great music that is very peaceful to me. Anyway, here's what I came up with -- my picture of winter, and this is what I love. Enjoy.

12" of Fresh at JHMR

After an angry snowstorm wailed all night on Tuesday, we woke up to a foot of fresh powder that had fallen exclusively overnight. The sun was out for a bit in the morning so I was able to get a few shots in before the clouds took over again. Here's to more powder days!
