Whoooooo!Whoooooo!Whoooooo!

Road Trip!
Ever gone on one of those trips where you look back and go, “Wow, that was seriously one awesome trip!” ? Well this was one of them.

We took six days and did a road trip down to Jackson, Wyoming, USA, home of the Jackson Hole Ski Resort and the Teton Mountain Range. We took advantage of an above average year for snowfall and completely fluked out with a big dump followed by 3 perfect days of splitter blue sunshine.

After skiing the impressive ski resort for a day (at $80 a pop), we hit the surrounding backcountry. Teton Pass has some amazing skiing with the easiest access you could ask for. We got perfect untouched lines and found some excellent trees. One the third day we made a foray into Teton National Park up into Avalanche Canyon. Once again the conditions were perfect and some sweet lines were had all around. The third day was our biggest day, we skied into the park again upto the Ellingwood Coulouir on Middle Teton Mtn. 1200 feet of 50 degrees+ was definitely an experience to remember! Our final day found us back at Teton Pass before a long 11 hour drive
