The snow continues to fall in Jackson Hole, with 16″ in the last 48 hours and snow still falling as we speak. The forecast calls for a brief clear tomorrow before a significant storm develops on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. With this storm in the forecast and 149″ already for this season, Jackson Hole is a sure bet for a White Christmas.
This morning was a memorable one in Jackson Hole. Jackson Hole athlete Cam Fitzpatrick finds himself in the white room:
This holiday season just got a bit more special with a unique evening in Teton Village featuring Travis Rice, Jeremy Jones, Zahan Billimoria, and Steve Jones , who will be taking an in-depth look at the film Jeremy Jones’ Higher. This exclusive one-night event hosted by Asymbol, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Teton Gravity Research brings together these men, who represent some of the most prominent and successful snowboarders, guide, and filmaker in the world. The evening will focus on the descent of The Grand Teton’s Otter Body route using video footage and photography from the film. If you don’t know what Otter Body looks like, check out this photo by Chris Bezamat.
Travis shared his excitement for Sunday’s collaboration, saying “It’s an honor to spend an evening with Jeremy, Steve, and Zahan talking about making the film Higher and specifically what it took to ride the Grand with pow conditions. I’m looking forward to sharing the stories of this epic adventure with everyone in attendance.” Throughout the evening, Travis will moderate a discussion with Jeremy, Steve and Zahan followed by an audience Q&A session.
We are thrilled to be hosting An Otter Body Experience later this month,” stated Anna Cole, Communications Manager at JHMR. “Having Jeremy Jones, Travis Rice, Steve Jones and Zahan Billimoria together, and using the mountains they all love, the Tetons, as the discussion point will create an inspiring evening for all. Having the athlete, guide and filmmakers’ perspectives on a legendary descent will be sure to create a dynamic conversation.”
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at JH Sports and Jackson Treehouse. Seating is limited, so pre-purchasing tickets is encouraged. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Protect Our Winters (POW), the environmental non-profit of which Jones is a founding member. Doors to Walk Festival Hall open at 4pm, with the event starting at 5pm.
The snow is still coming down hard here at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. With over 140”of snow this season and over 2’ falling this week conditions are spectacular. We found Corbet’s Cabin buried in snow when we got to the top of the tram.
TGIF everyone! It’s finally the weekend and Mother Nature seems to be cooperating–hello snow!! We know that you plan to hit the slopes for some good-ole fashioned downhill fun, but what are you doing for the rest of the weekend? If you don’t have plans, this is what’s happening in Jackson. Have fun and be safe!

Happy Holidays Everyone! We’re excited to announce this year’s line-up of activities and celebrations in the weeks to come. We hope to see you and yours around The Village for some (or all) of these festivities, all of which are listed below.
Don’t just reach for the stars, shred with them.
Jackson Hole Mountain Sports School and Teton Gravity Research have partnered to offer a one-of-a-kind ski and snowboard camp for kids in middle and high school. TGR “Grom” Camp offers teenagers the ultimate freeriding experience in the mountain mecca of Jackson Hole. Rising rippers spend three days learning from the superstars of the sport, including TGR cast members and the best Mountain Sports School youth coaches. JHMR Athlete, Daniel Tisi, has participated in the camp for 3 years and is stoked for another year of shredding with the best of the best. We sat down with him and asked a few questions about why this camp is so unique.
What’s your favorite thing about TGR Grom Camp?
My favorite part of the TGR Grom Camp is getting to shred with pros like Tim. He is on another level with his skiing and its very cool to learn from him. The coaches are awesome too!
International Women’s Ski Day is a worldwide holiday combining brand, ability and wide-ranging ages to bring women and girls together on the mountain. The celebration is simple–Get a handful of your girls together to shred and know that females all across the globe are doing the same.
The Jackson Hole Babe Force, She Jumps, and the K2 Ski Alliance are coming together to host this downhill day at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort on Saturday 12/13/14. The event kicks off with a 12:30 pm meeting at the base of the Bridger Gondola for a group lady shred. Bring friend, mother, daughter, sister –all ages and abilities are welcome!
A group après session will follow at the VC –where there will be a #IWSDJackson “What does it mean to be a female skier?” photo booth. Grab a piece of paper, jot down your unique answer and smile for the camera! Participants will be entered to win raffle prizes from K2 Goggles, Marker Apparel and more! Join in to celebrate and showcase the sheer number and diversity of female skiers in our valley.
The ladies of Jackson Hole are most definitely not afraid to drop in!
Next winter is JHMR’s 50th anniversary, but since it’s never too early to celebrate The Big One, join us now in watching this first installment of a six-video, TGR- produced, series chronicling a place that is Born to be Wild.
