Do you like your ski boots?

What is the most important piece of gear in your ski kit?  You could argue that it is the skis.  Sure, the shape, the profile, the stiffness, all of those things are important.  You might argue that the bindings are a difference maker; they are the interface between the skis and the boots, after all.  My money, however, is on the boots.

jhs-boot-wall

Not only are they crucial for performance, they can make or break a day on the hill if they don’t fit properly.  Boots are the essential component for feel, agility and confidence on the mountain. That being said, there are many variables that must be considered.  Set aside looks and the question of what will match your outfit best for one second and consider all the factors involved in whether or not a ski boot will help improve your turns throughout the season.  Then ask yourself if those boots that have been sitting in your garage collecting dust and possible housing a mouse are the answer to your skiing problems.  If you are ready for a new pair, or if you want to give those boots another shot, then we say now is the perfect time to evict the mouse and go see your friendly, local boot fitter at Jackson Hole Sports.  With luck they may be able to dial in your current boot.  If not, they can give you the perfect brand and model suggestions based on your foot size and shape.  The advantage to doing this now is that the bulk of the new winter product is in house and on display, so you will have more options to choose from.  So get out to Jackson Hole Sports and check out all the new boots for the fast approaching winter season.  Right now, they are offering $50 off a DFP footbed with the purchase of a new winter ’15/’16 ski boot.  Just one more reason to head to Jackson Hole Sports and get ready for the 50th Anniversary winter season!

Your Snowy Dreams are a Jackson Hole Reality

Snow in September? In Jackson Hole? Yes, and yes. It’s not uncommon, and right now, it’s dumping snow at the top of the Aerial Tram! Early this morning, thick clouds only gave a partial glimpse of the white mountain tops.  Then, as the first tram of the day descended from the clouds,  it was clear that winter has hit the upper mountain.

20150916-AS-0190-snowy-tram

To ease you into the winter mood, check out our newly released 3rd webisode of “Born to be Wild.” 


Oh, and by the way, here is what I found on my early morning tram trip:

Corbet’s Cabin at its finest.

A fresh layer of snow on top of Rendezvous Mountain, with more on the way.

Waffles anyone? Seems like the perfect day for a hot drink and a bacon, peanut butter waffle!

20150916-AS-0183-snowy-tram

Hiking is not encouraged or discouraged.


Lots of snow blowing and building. The forecast shows continued snow to 8,000 feet through Thursday, as well as possible snow in the valley. After the snow, the weather looks great with sunny weather, cooler night temperatures – all of the key ingredients for perfect fall adventures.

Bring your A Game. This year’s annual disc golf tournament is this Saturday, September 12.  With over a decade of a 10 hole course, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has finally upped the anti!  18 permanent baskets and a complete redesign await the amateur or pro disc golfer. This year’s change has taken the course from an open field, uphill, throw-your-arm-out type course, to a finesse, shape-your-shot and hit-the-treed-gaps skilled course.  It only held onto one of the original course holes.  The 17 new holes will challenge any player.
Check out www.jacksonhole.com/disc-golf.html or like JH Disc Golf on Facebook for the most up-to-date info.

The course starts just above the Cody House and south of the Ropes course and shoots down the access road to hole #1.  Hole 2 heads towards Tower 1, then the course ascends the Gros Ventre and Lower Tramline areas.  It peaks near the top of the Union Pass lift, then descends open fields with long downhill shots on holes 15 and 16. The course then ends at the original hole 1 basket. Total distance on the course is 5,435′.
