Spring Break "Dropping" in Jackson Hole

For Sam's quick spring break from school and her 2 jobs, Alex, Sam, and I pilled in the car late Sunday night and headed for Jackson Hole to ski Teton Village.  The kids have never skied there and I haven't for many years and we found it to big one big play ground.  The weather cooperated with semi sunny or kinda cloudy spring conditions. Here are a couple of the videos.
kids now days....

Alex loved this park with the jumps.
We learned park educate from the ski classes.. You yell "next drop" to be the next in line and "dropping" when you are ready to go so no one else cuts you off.  This kinda works most of the time but some folks can't figure it out. No doubt they are the drivers in the left lane going slower then the speed limit.

Sam and Alex liked this BIG table.
JH have built "Stash" parks found in the trees with mostly natural hits, jumps, tables, rails and other playful wood terrain type things.

This is Sam and Alex hitting a curved wall to a big wall.  They both loved it.

Snowbird Time Machine

Yesterday, John and I enjoyed a few hours of epic powder skiing at Snowbird.  After 3 days of storms with 48" in 72 hours and 13" overnight - the powder hounds were lined up for miles waiting for Little Cottonwood Canyon to open.  Traffic started moving at about 9:00AM and we were on the mountain at 9:50.  We stayed on GAD II lift all morning.  It was a wise decision.  Word was that the tram line was longer than ever.  Little Cloud didn't open until about 10:30 and Mineral Basin was closed until 1:00

There are a few more photos over at my blog.

 That's me above in my new white coat and John below in blue on Violator Bowl.  You'll just have to take my word that I'm wearing my volcano pants.  I don't remember if John was even wearing pants....
