So it Does Snow in Wyoming (Jackson Day 4)

After a night eating everything cute and furry and boozing at the Cowboy Bar, we all went to sleep to the sight of light light flurries. We awoke to what they were claiming was a max of three inches of the top. As breakfast ensued, snow began to fall again. And it didn't stop. The top was a brutal white out but the Gondy was running and got us into great stuff. While the morning still had some icy bumps, oh boy was there snow. Even the groomers had a nice layer of snow on the sides that made for some great power slashes.

Spirits rose quickly.

A few hard turns in actual snow made life, very, very good. Looking out, it was like the Tetons finally came alive. Everything we saw looked totally different with heavy snow coming down. So many things that were basically unrideable became totally doable and made for big smiles and great turns.

As an aside, it turns out owning a faux suede snowboarding jacket is not awesome when everything gets covered in snow. Powder Seen was out in full force as can be evidenced by photography.

While the Kelly's and the Brown Bear headed to town for some exploring, Dong and I went up and down the Thunder chair and the Gondy. Finding deep snow blown into the woods and epic turns and face shots.

The best turns of the trip thus far occurred and life became very very good. Apres was done at Casscades and we got a bit moist on spicy Margs. YUM YUM YUM.

Just as a note, some of the pics you'll see are from our trip out into Jackson last night. I will not be doing much organizing until I get back.
