On Wednesday morning, I got on the Gondola right at 9 am, eager to get first tracks on the fresh corduroy sprawling across the mountain.  Much to my happy surprise, the sun was shining on the upper mountain and I found myself giggling with happiness as I cruised down the pristine slopes.  I thought that was the best morning of the season until today.

The snow really fell last night and left an unbelievable coat of fluffy powder for me (ok…everyone) to enjoy.  Wednesday’s “giggles” turned into full on squeals of joy as I made my way down Rendezvous Bowl.  The point of this personal story is: GET OUT THERE THE SNOW IS UNBELIEVABLE AND YOU’LL GIGGLE AND SMILE SO MUCH!*

*sorry for yelling.

Anyway, here’s what’s going on this weekend!  Have fun and be safe!
SAFETY WEEKEND CELEBRATION WITH TCSAR
Location: Teton Village, Wyoming
Time: Friday, Saturday, Sunday.  No fees or admission.
Information:  Join Teton County Search and Rescue and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in honor of Safety Month at the top of the Bridger Gondola.
FRIDAY: 
from 9am-1pm, TCSAR will an exclusive look at the TCSAR helicopter they use, parked on top of the Bridger Gondola. In addition, there will avalanche dog demonstrations, information being handed out, and volunteers answering questions.
SATURDAY: 
The ‘Safety Posse’ will be on the hill handing out goodies and prizes to skiers/riders practicing safety on the slopes.
SUNDAY:
There will be another helicopter showing from our friends at Air Medical Heli, from 11am – 2pm.
THE INSIDE SCOOP:
 This is such a fun opportunity for shredders of all ages to learn at JHMR.  It’s rare that you can get some up close and personal time with ski patrol, avy dogs, and helicopters, so I wouldn’t miss this chance!  On top of that, it’s so important to be an educated skier or rider, seeing that you can only control Mother Nature so much.  That said, do your best to look uphill, ski in control, and be an ambassador of the mountain!

THE INSIDE SCOOP: Folks have been *buzzing* about this party, which is a strong indicator that it’s going to be worth the ticket.  I don’t really think that I have enough street cred to comment farther.  Which probably means I should go.

THE INSIDE SCOOP:
 It’s truly unbelievable what Teton Adaptive Sports does to make sure that everyone can have a mountain experience.  If you’ve never seen their equipment, I’d highly recommend going to their live demo on Saturday morning on Teewinot.  If you’re blown away (you will be), you can head to this Apres Soiree and support their worthy cause.

THE INSIDE SCOOP:
Any DJ that promises dance, hip-hop and rap is a hero in my book.  Saturday is a huge day in Teton Village so there won’t be a shortage of activities to keep you busy until the DJ starts at 9 pm.  And…it’s free.
