Jackson Hole Day 2 (Rando Weather)

Rain, sun, ice, hard-pack, powder, and mashed potatoes. A very very confusing day at The Big Hole. Thankfully, the 4100 feet of elevation meant that higher up the mountain things froze up nicely and even a few inches of snow came down.

We traveled the mountain. Dong and I shredded a bit with Dirty Jerz and his lady friend. Much strong island - jerz insults were thrown back and forth.

Once the Kellys and the brown bear readied themselves, we hit up the Gondola and then explored the Casper area of the Hole. Because of the shit weather, we mostly stuck to the larger groomed areas, still though, much fun was had.

Great lunch up at the Bridger Gondola lodge. At about 8500 feet, awesome Chinese food was had and beers were crushed. We got an awesome view of Corbets' and even saw a few guys drop in - with great success.

After lunch we headed over to the Rendezvous bowl and finally found some good trees with probably the best snow we've had in the last two days. A brutal mushy traverse was required to get us back to the gondy and we took one final trip down through the big park. Brown may have been a little "moist" and decided to take utilize some adventurous techniques to get down. His front flip was not overly successful.

So long story short, conditions are pretty awful but we're hoping we are finally going to get some snow and lower temps tonight. Everyone, do your snow dances.
