Jackson Hole Skiing Prior to the Gathering

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Garyskr and I will be flying Jackson Hole on the the 21st (Thursday) and skiing there Fri and Sat, then heading north to Bozman Sunday. If any others will be in JH during these two days, let us know. I hope that some of the Epic team who live in Jackson can link up for a few runs during those days.

Hey Mike ---  Mike from Boston here -- my ski bud Neill and I are flying in to Jackson Hole on Tues 3/19 and planning on skiing there Wed-Thur-Fri and driving to Bozeman on Sat the 23rd (figured the busiest day at the slopes would be our drive day), then picking up with the rest of the Gathering starting Sunday.... 

 

Other than flights and a vehicle, haven't committed to any lodging just yet, but would be great to take some runs together, especially with any locals who know the mountain as this will be our first visit there!

We look forward to hooking up Mike,

We are certainly not locals but we will be skiing with a local who knows the Mtn quite well.  Send me a PM when the time gets closer - look forward to meeting you.

We (with Betsy, cgeib and BB) plan to front end the gathering with a few days in JH (and a visit to GT on the backend).  However, it looks like we'll just miss you guys as our JH skiing dates are 3/24 & 25.  We'll certainly catch up with all in BSky.  Cheers!

For sure we can plan on skiing on Friday. If you have not booked a room, I can recommend the 40'er which is located in the town of Jackson, 10 miles from the mountain, but, they do have a free shuttle. I like the town over the village, but, staying at Teton Village is very nice. There are several Epic members who live in Jackson, maybe we do a mini-gathering. 

 

You may wish to check out skiing at Grand Targhee on Saturday. It's on the route from Jackson to Big Sky and is just a great area, known for the quality of snow.

Hi Don,

 

We have never met, but during the last 2 Gatherings, Bazzer speaks very highly of you and Betsy. I'll miss him greatly this year. Looking forward to meeting you and seeing Chris and BB again.

Michel and I are in for Jackson on Fri the 22nd and maybe Sat.  Have to decide whether to do Jackson or Targhee on Sat as driving to Targhee puts us an hour closer to Bozeman which we will drive to after skiing on Sat.

 

There's some kind of festival in Jackson that weekend, so rooms in town are significantly costlier than usual for Fri night, but that hill and Targhee are both worth it.

 

See everyone there.

i will say don and Betsy were a huge inspiration for Tricia and I, you will not find two nicer people anywhere. You will love meeting and skiing with them.

Don and Betsy,

High praise from Phil. I've  told him that he changed my life for the better, back in Philly, when I just was getting back into skiing. Phil got me into Epic skiing and the Gatherings, so many great memories. Plus, he's my personal ski pimp. Phil and Trish are special people, 

 

Let's make turns.

My friends and I will be skiing Targhee on March 23.  Driving up from SLC to Driggss on Fri, March 22.  We are staying in a little place in Driggs.  Group includes three experts, an advanced intermediate, and me.  Since it's our first day after flying in from flatlands, I'll be sticking more to groomers by the afternoon.

 

Be fun to meet up if you decide to move over to Targhee for Sat.  We are driving to Big Sky after the ski day.

Hi Mike:

 

We look forward to skiing with you soon!

 

~~Such a wonderful post to read from Phil.  

 

As you commented and many people on this site know as well, Phil and Trish are truly special...very unique people in fact when you put in the backdrop of skiing and how we all met.

 

When I think about the upcoming trip, I can already hear both of their voices clearly above everyone else in the Tram (JH and BigS) describing both the prior nights laughable events and the anticipation of new day of new skiing...

 

...nobody makes it better than those 2 :)

Not much to add after reading this thread.  I do look forward to seeing and skiing with Don and Betsy and Chris and everyone else again.  Sooo much terrain, so little time.

There is a deal going on right now for lift tickets $75, thought you guys could be interested. I have no idea if tickets can be found for less... but this might seem good to someone anyway!
