Off Season Adventures!
Recently, I was fortunate enough to be able to make the trip out to Jackson, WY for some spring powder skiing. Spring skiing can be spotty, but just as I had hoped, we arrived with a fresh twelve inches of snow to welcome us to the wild west. The backcountry riding was phenomenal, it seemed as if I was carving along a cloud as I rode through the endless powder in the back bowls. My favorite run in particular was the Powder Eight bowl. This bowl is not serviced by the tram making it a long hike, but the reward is well worth it! Being able to point out your line thousands of feet above to your buddies on the shuttle back to town is an awesome feeling.
For those of you adventure enthusiasts who enjoy buckling on the skies or board, I’d recommend making the trip to Jackson sometime. Just like Door County, it has a small town persona that can not be replicated as well as some of the best backcountry riding in the states.
