The latest storm has brought over a foot of new snow to Jackson Hole, bringing the season total above 19 feet on the season. This storm wasn’t just relegated to the upper mountain- we enjoyed a great coating of powder from top to bottom. The whole mountain is skiing incredibly well and snow is still falling.

This past summer, LOKI came into our family. LOKI is a White Swiss Shepherd and was born on May 15th. Yep, we are those dog parents that take our little boy pretty much everywhere and ensure that he has many adventures. We are also those parents that celebrate each month as a Birthday until he hits one year.

Words: Rick Wilson, 20-year JH Sports Veteran and Repair Shop Manager

Well here we are at the time of the season when we can safely shelve the rock skis and bust out this season’s new sticks. But before you do you should know that brand new skis do not come from the factory ready to ski. They look pretty and shiny, but the factory tune usually leaves a bit to be desired.

When i came to the Tetons 10 years ago, I roamed the mountains freely, working a little on the side, but unencumbered and without kids – my schedule was my own. I used to think that a hard day of skiing involved long days in the backcountry. Then I had kids, and I learned – backcountry days are a joke compared to the exhausting task of teaching your own kids to ski! Still Kim and I managed to instill a love of skiing into the kids, and skiing became a family affair with our clan. I make my life as a skier and a guide, so it was natural for me to want to pass on the experience of being in the mountains in that way to my children.

There’s a little romance and enchantment associated with winter in my book.   The winter here embodies this sense of togetherness and small adventures that make winter so fun.  The cozy nights by a fireplace, the red rosy cheeks, sleigh rides, snow falling, and moonlight on a white night.  The romance of winter is quite possibly endless, but more than that, in Jackson, it’s contagious.

It’s no secret that summer in Jackson is Mecca for couples to be betrothed.  The limitless beautiful views and a quaint town make a lovely place to get married.  But, I would like to highlight what I think is the most romantic thing of all… mountains in the winter.
