New snow and new ride…..

Some spring snow has hit the Tetons and it was just in time to get over to Jackson for one last day.  Warming temperatures have been the name of the game this winter, so when the snow flies we have had to hit it early.  A morning of skiing pow in Fore Pines followed by an afternoon of spring groomers and Grace Potter at Mountain Fest made for a pretty sweet day.  

Then it was time to head out for New Mexico to pick up the new Teton Freeride van from long time freeskiing competitor and good buddy, Elliot Marsh.  I am stoked to keep this van’s ski bumming tradition alive!

New Teton Free...RIDE

On our way back to Wydaho, we decided to head over to Zion National Park for a taste of desert warmth.  It was just too tempting, but naturally as we found that desert warmth it began to snow back home.  After a great hike in Zion it was time to head back to the Tetons to get our share of the new white fluff.

The addition of the van brought a great little road trip into the mix.  Now, with some of the Volkl family in town, it was time to show off what real pow is like here at the Ghee! Rounding out a week of February like storms, I caught up with Rush for some spring fluff.
