Happy New Year!
Are you looking for things to do in Jackson while you visit…look no further for winter fun!
Yeap, you guessed it. Big Horn Sheep.
Nestled just outside of the town square, you can drive down a dirt road onto the National Elk Refuge and see these guys most days during the winter season! (more…)
Over 9″ of fresh snow have fallen over the past two days in Jackson Hole, bringing us to over 13 feet on the season. Since the Jackson Hole valley lives and breathes snow, we couldn’t be happier about our New Years gift. Between the Torchlight Parade, Fireworks and deep powder skiing, Jackson Hole is starting off 2014 in a big way!

Don’t worry about finding enough time in your busy vacation schedule to visit the town square. Many of the shops and restaurants are open late so you can enjoy all the outdoor activities that Jackson Hole has to offer and still have time to explore all the shops, galleries and restaurants that make Jackson such a lively place. So go ahead, ski until the last bell, take a dogsled to granite hot springs or spend a little more time on that snow machine, because the town square will be jumping well past sundown. Of course it is always best to call ahead to make sure that a specific business is open. Click here for a list of businesses that have committed to staying open until at least 8pm Thursday through Saturday from January 3rd 2014 until March 28th 2014.

Once you’ve had enough of this:
We’ve been reveling in the fun of a White Christmas in Jackson Hole, and the combination of holiday lights and fresh snow falling out the window has us geared up for a great 2014. We will be celebrating tonight with a Torchlight Parade and Fireworks starting around 6PM. More Details.
We hope everyone has had a nice holiday and has been able to spend some time with family and friends!
While I was getting ready for company, this was Ryan’s preparation…typical. 🙂
Christmas skiing was good in the Tetons, maybe better than anywhere else in the west. Christmas Eve marked the end of the biggest storm of the year – almost three feet of snow in 4 days. I spent Christmas day ripping around the resort with Alyosha – my 8 year old, and his dream team of ski buddies: Daniel & Jackson Tisi and a crew of other JH high school kids.
If you think there are no friends on powder days, you’ve never skied with this crew. 16 inches of snow and bluebird skies and the hardest charging high school kids on the hill seemed as happy to hang with an 8 year old as they were to ski for themselves. I love that about Jackson – people love to ride hard – but the partnership and the camaraderie of being in the mountains together is what makes an ordinary day, truly amazing.
With Christmas behind me, it was time for me to get to work, guiding in the Tetons for Exum Mountain Guides.

It’s a winter wonderland in Jackson Hole. Over 2.5 feet of snow have fallen in the last few days to create a Christmas paradise for skiers and riders. Below are photos from Christmas Eve. Santa came early this year. Photos from JHMR and Cody Downard Photography with Jackson Hole athletes Cam Fitzpatrick, Jess McMillan and Hadley Hammer.
Jax n’ Lance here! First things first, a very Happy Holidays to all!
As the Holiday season comes to a hustle, our work does too. We are busy wrapping up projects for the end of year, and beginning new ones. A few have asked how living a dream full of shredding 126 days a year is possible while keeping a job. With that said, we thought it would be fun to serve up a sneak peak into the fine dance we do with work and play. When it comes to the winter season, our schedules shift to allow for pow turns to take their place among the planning. This is not an easy feat and a majority of the social elements besides those occurring on the mountain, take a back seat for the most part. Yet with anything in life, there are sacrifices, yet all to make the priorities take place. And in the end, it is well worth it.
A typical day in the winter goes something like this: (more…)
