After completing this, I felt I had some local knowledge of the mountain. As an example, on our first run we took the tram. When we left the tram it was blowing snow and high winds. The visibility was only several yards. I knew from reading the guide, to use the trees on the skiers left as a reference point. It was a great help as we had no idea where we were going.
The kids are both very skilled snowboarders, with the bravado that comes with being 20 years old.We skied everything from Saratoga bowl to the Hobacks, and most everything in between, even some crazy trails not on the map such as "Jaws".
I think this should be mandatory reading for any first timer to Jackson hole. It was a great help and immensely improved our experience on the mountain!
Thank you for the effort.
The Hobacks are stunningly beautiful!
I am including a picture of my son taking it all in on the Hobacks.
