Doesn't look like any fun AT ALL!
Great pics. I spy a few folks I know.
Here's a few from yesterday's skiing.
Bob Peter's with his vintage K2 VO's that he was using for the day with his instructor's reunion group

Had an amazing time skiing today, did the tips and tricks in the morning with our guide Steven. Got some really good advice on my skiing, and we hit some good terrain too. Took the tram up after lunch to gawk at Corbet's, and finished off with a nice soft run in Tensleep Bowl.
I also hauled my camera along.

What a lovely bluebird day.

My roommate this gathering, David/desired username, a great guy,
garyskier a super friendly ski nut
I like the move spikedog/brian is making in the photo, reminds me of old school racers from the 1940s.
older guy we saw drop corbet's successfully
my ski gang on Saturday: L-R, Greg, Gary, spikedog, david, johnl
More from Saturday, 2/28/15:

Gary's friend and super nice Jackson local "Retro" Greg. This guy's steeze made me.
Gary with the valley view
Johnl, my buddy also from Virginia.
Spikedog and Gary skier, possible candidate for funny caption contest:
the obligatory Ullr shot, or is that the obligatory shot of Ullr
If ULLR will bless anyone its this trio.
@SpikeDog it was great meeting you and your lovely wife.
These are from today, Mar 1, 2015. Gorgeous day, my final one at JH. Heading to Summit County for a month.

Bob Peter's tips and tours group had a bunch of strong skiers in it:
Many strong lady skiers at this gathering!!
Chunky, sunbaked crud puts a smile on Bob Peter's face.
Getting an edge on non-hero snow.
More power skiing on mank
Snow that is good for you
Bob saying something either very important or very funny
It was gorgeous up there and while I was eating Michael proposed to Josephine. She said yes and I cheered them on.
It inspired me to call my wife. I haven't seen her in a month and I pick her up tomorrow at DIA.
I closed out my three days at JH by making a couple laps down the Hobacks with EpicSkiers Fatbob and Patrick. It was not quite ripe and I felt like a 61 year old man wrestling an alligator.
Patrick handled it much better
Fatbob eats this stuff for breakfast
Best wishes for a successful remainder of The Gathering. Special thanks to Uncle Louie for outstanding Gathermeister job.
There were some crunchy spots but mostly the cold temps (yesterday was 13 F when we got to the mountain) have kept the snow cold and fun.
Great shots everyone! I've been having a blast, got some more photos of the two groups I was with today.
But first, a meeting to decide on the locale for next year's Gathering.

We had lots of flat light in the afternoon, not very good for photo ops. Or for skiing for that matter.
If anyone wants me to tag along with them in the next couple days and get some photos, just let me know!
Glad you are getting some good turns in. We are now at Snowbird where it is dumping, we expect 18-24" for tomorrow so we can test powder skis...all for the Epicski Members benefits. Remember, we do all this for you.
Your sacrifices are an inspiration to us all.
