Dropping into the Weekend

Attitudes have definitely shifted over the past week in Teton Valley.  People are whistling, have a little more pep in their step, and are smiling.  The reason is clear–snow has thickly blanketed the mountains day after day, making for an outlandishly good time on the slopes.  If you haven’t made it out to JHMR in the last […]

Storm Dispatch: Jackson Hole’s January Cycle

Dropping into the Weekend

We’re a week into the New Year and I have to be honest–2016 feels RIGHT.  We’ve all had a week to recover from our various parties and celebrations, and it’s inevitably time to think about what’s going to happen tomorrow when the clock strikes 5ish. Well, just like 2015, I’ll be your faithful 2016 events […]
