Report from January 11, 2021
I rolled up to Jackson Hole at 1pm yesterday under clearing skies and cold temps.
It was about 0ºF in the valley in the morning but in the teens up high – the typical mid-winter inversion here.
I was looking for a cruisy, groomery, happy afternoon and that’s just what I found out there.
There were no lines on any of the lifts so I just started cycling through them: Teewinot, Apres Vous, Teton, Thunder, Sublette.
Since there was no one around, the groomers were still flat and smooth at 1pm.
I zipped around, smiled, enjoyed the fresh air in my lungs and sun on my face.
This place is gorgeous.
After I got my fill I zipped home with a bubbling contentment that lasted all evening.
