“Wildflower” is a gorgeous new trail that links the Lower Faces trails from the bottom of the mountain all the way up to Casper. Great views of the valley, aerial tram, gondola and wildflowers can be soaked in to the fullest, as our trail crew has put in a number of benches at several scenic points. There is even a picnic table that offers up shade and one of the best views around.

Share the stoke!Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someone

August 1st marked the opening of the National Elk Refuge section of Flat Creek, just outside of the town of Jackson. This section of Flat Creek offers easy access, big fish and really difficult fishing. If you’re looking for scenery and challenge, this is an incredible location to fish. We went out on Thursday morning to give it a try.

Coffee + fly rod = a perfect way to start the day in Jackson Hole.

The Making of Surf Jackson Hole with the GoPro Hero3

Share the stoke!Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someone

Lunch Counter is a Class III rapid on the Snake River that has a standing wave that a surfboard and a kayak can surf from 8,000-12,000 cfs.

I had always wanted to make a video on the wave , so back in June when the water levels were ideal I called up three of our athletes for a morning session on the Snake. Bryan Iguchi, Cam FitzPatrick, and Griffin Post joined me with their boards and I carried my kayak and an arsenal of GoPro Hero3s and different mounts.

I set the three cameras on 1080p @ 60fps. I love the quality of the footage at 1080p and the incredible slow motion at 60fps makes this my go to setting for the cameras.

Now it was time to get creative. I didn’t want a boring POV film that makes you nauseous. I wanted a variety of angles that would give the viewer the feeling of what it was like to surf the wave and swim the rapid below.

Below are photos or screen grabs of the different mounts in action.

JHMR athlete Kim Havell moved to Jackson Hole two years ago and has skied what many people would call a lifetime of lines in one seasons in the Tetons. Recently, Kim skied the Otterbody Route which is on the East Face of the Grand Teton. With only a handful of descents on the Otterbody, Kim is the first female to ski the exposed and technical face.  Way to go Kim!
