If you’d asked me a year ago if I thought I’d be a ski bum at one of world’s greatest ski resorts having skied through one of its snowiest seasons on record, I would have told you you were crazy. Jackson Hole’s Raymer Plot is currently 3″ short of 700″ and their Rendezvous Plot’s 172″ base is 6″ above all instrumentation. Forget the numbers and watch the video, though–I believe it speaks for itself.
Much thanks for support and inspiration from Teton Gravity Research, Brian Swendseid, Andrew Whiteford, Don Watkins, Julie Weinberger, Jason Smith, Michelle Smith, Kevin Wittig, Jeff Brines, Griffin Post, Todd Ligare, Ryan Halverson, Julian Carr, John Wells, Jordan Kunz, Rachel Shaver, Jared Ishkanian, Abe Kislevitz, Tim Konrad, Andy Lewicky and everyone else I’m forgetting. Here’s to what’s been a truly remarkable [and safe] season…and to many more.
My favorite daily photos from the season:
