2016/03/01 A bit of Powder at Jackson Hole
π 2016-03-01 00:00 in Snow
After not too great conditions at Taos Mountain, Arturo drove us to Jackson Hole (13H drive) to enjoy some powder that was supposed to fall by just before we arrived. In real life, it was only an inch or so and the 7 inches that were supposed to have fallen just 2 days prior had already iced up :(
As a result, the day we arrived wasn't that great, I actually managed to injure my knee from repetitive bouncing on icy bumps. The next day, we got a fresh 3-4 inches and that made things better. Some parts of the mountain were still pretty poor (icy) but I found some spots where the powder had stayed and was reasonably good. We also found some untouched powder runs that had to be paid with pretty bad bottoms. We took a ride back down to the condo area in a mostly untouched powder field, and the bottom was also not fun, but eh, nothing's free :)

Jackson Hole is a great mountain, I can only imagine how good it must be on a real powder day. And boo for global warming causing most mountains to almost instantly ice up to crud a day or two after each snow fall now :(

For out last run, we went to north Hoback, the top was pretty good, the bottom was ice unfortunately, but great views on the way down:

those people were working way too hard for their icy snow :)

After 2 days, I decided to call it a day though, as the next day was only going to go downhill (ice again) and my knee needed a bit of recovery (also Tahoe was going to get a monster dump 3 days later, so I had to get home for that :)
