travels, photos, and family
Over five feet of snow has fallen in the Tetons in the last nine days. I’m too tired to ski today, even though it snowed another seven inches last night. So if you are looking for some freshies, come and visit. Here are a few photos to encourage you.
I’ve been alternating days in the backcountry with days at the Jackson Hole resort, but I don’t have many resort photos.
One of my favorite backcountry destinations is 25 Short. It’s a 3,300 foot climb, but also 3,000 feet vertical of untracked powder on the way back down.
There are great views of the Tetons from the route. Notice the substantial avalanche crown near the top of the Grand.
Avalanche hazard is something to be worried about in the backcountry, even up Swift Creek.
Come visit and ski. We’ve got plenty of room.
