Teton Range, WY, Report: A Legendary Teton Chute in Stormy Snow & a Broken Ski…

Report from February 8, 2023

Up and out of the house late yesterday.

Late because it was supposed to snow Tuesday night, but it didn’t…

It was nice to have a slow morning finally.

Then, it started dumping snow in the early morning.

We walked up and skied down two chutes.

The first chute was a classic.

The upper slope had avalanched and was firm up top.

Once we reached the middle and bottom, the avalanche debris only added to the deepness, and skied great.

I still wasn’t quite confident enough to fully open it up in the new snow.

The snow was deep in spots, shallow in spots, firm in spots, and wind-pressed in spots.

Unpredictable skiing, but still damn fun.

Chute #2 was more beat up than chute #1, and when I was trying to avoid tracks, I went out to the edge for some fresh – which I know not to do – and I walloped a rock and broke my ski…

C’est la vie!

Great day with good friends.

Thx, Fox, Nate, & Whiteford, for being rad out there.
