Report from November 22, 2021

Like many mountain communities of the US West, our shred brothers and sisters of Idaho and Wyoming are dialing in the good vibes while hanging out for snow.

With Opening Date pending conditions on both sides of Teton Pass, the local shred tribes have turned hopefully to cherished pagan rites to appease the snow gods. Ritualistic burning of old planks has been rampant, leading some experts to anticipate an escalation to mass streaking events in the near future.

At present, the dry shimmering crystals that Teton locals crave have gathered to a base depth of 25″ at Targhee, while neighboring Jackson Hole Mountain Resort┬áreports a 26″ deep initial layer. And both the iconic snow destinations are making every preparation for winter with guns firing.

Local winter shamen remain optimistic that offerings of barley-pop beverages, 2-for-1 entree deals, and ladies undergarments strung from the trees will soon lure Old Man Winter to the Tetons to stay.

In the immediacy, commence (or continue) snow dancing.
