SKIING JACKSON HOLE

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Never been to Jackson Hole and just curious if 90mm underfoot is wide enough for powder days? Any suggestions would be great.

 

Thanks!

A little more info about myself - im an advanced skiier 5'11" 175lbs who likes to hit bowls, trees, groomers. Dont hit the park really. Ski mostly on east coast in VT. This is my second trip out west, first one was to squaw valley where i did not have any POW days. I used and am currently using the K2 recoils 174cm and 90mm underfoot. I know these are more for the parks but got a great deal on them. Will these hold up out at jackson?

Not going to be an issue - 90 mm is fine. I've skied all over the place for years with Head Mojo 90's and Watea 94's. If you really feel like you are underpowered you can rent some fatties. It depends on the skier more than the ski as far as handling the deep pow.

The mountain has been pounded lately, so there's good coverage everywhere. When are you headed out?

Thanks for the reply spikedog! That is what i was hoping and kinda figured. All else fails i can demo some fatties like you said.

 

We are heading out march 13th-20th. Can't wait to ski this mountain!

What SpikeDog said.

 

If you're a good skier, a 90mm ski is plenty good for MOST mild-to-average powder days here.  

 

If it dumps and you want something bigger, we have a great program at the little retail shop at the top of the Bridger Gondola.  $5.00 per hour for demos and they have a large selection of large skis.  Many to choose from and it's an excellent deal.

 

Have fun while you're here.

I agree with Bob and Spike.  90 is plenty at Jackson (93 is my go-to width there unless it is puking all day long).  That place has the pitch to pull you down the hill!  And the $5 deal at the top of the gondy that Bob mentioned really is impossible to beat, and so darn easy.  You can get set up with a ski in the time it takes your buddies to do one lap of Casper or Thunder, then you'll be right back with them.
