Skied Today - June 19

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Well, we're still at it.

The last four weeks here in Jackson Hole were cold and wet and we still have a lot of snow up high. I joined up with a friend's party and we made the hike to Four Shadows Couloir on Cody Peak. The snow was a little sloppy but we had a fun time.

Here's Thad, Kara, and John near the top. Four Shadows begins in the upper lefthand portion of this photo. You can see TWO of the Four Shadows along the left side of the chute...




Here's Thad dropping into the upper part of Four Shadows...




And John punches "down" on the elevator shaft...





And Kara shows the boys how it's done...




Here's the group hanging out at the bottom of Cody Bowl. Four Shadows starts in the upper right portion of the photo...




And after finishing Four Shadows, you can hike up the other side of Cody Bowl for some turns on the Powder 8 slope...




I just thought I'd let you all know that some of us (in the northern hemisphere) are still making a few turns.

I stayed home, drank a couple of martinis and watched the U.S. Open.

Oh, I did hit a bucket early in the day.

I spent the day building a loft area in my barn. Still have to put some flooring material on the framing. Not nearly as cool as being outdoors in the sun. Sure worked up a good sweat, though.

I skied today.
SonwBird UT. Lift serviced sking. Only hiking was from the top of the chair to the Tram. I did not like the hike?? Had to stop half way up for a smoke.

Great photos, Bob. Looks wicked steep, and the skiers suspended in gravity's embrace.

Max - Did you buy a Ferrari? I want a ride.

Slider - spoken like a true connoisseur of summer skiing. Good on ya'. :

Phil - The Open was excellent. It was very entertaining to be able to watch the best golfers in the world look a little fallible.

MTT - I'm laughing my butt(: ) off about the smoke. How was the skiing? Should've been excellent for at least part of the day, I would think.

Kneale - I worked up a sweat too.

Nolo - It is steep; about 48 degrees where those photos were shot. All three of those kids are very good skiers. It's both inspiring and depressing to watch skiers less than half my age who are that good. I had barely even *begun* to ski when I was that age.

Bob the skiing @ Snowbird is (OK) firm brown snow in the morning nice around 10AM till 11AM then it starts getting sticky half way down. Skiing back to the base gets you 800’ of good stuff / half a mile of Ski grabbing slush / and then take of ski’s and walk down slope 400 yards in snow runoff and mud. After one trip too the base I decided the uphill walk to the tram was better. I enjoyed it!! I think I am going back next weekend.



I did not mean to make light of you accomplishment. I love the pic's (Keep em coming)

I am just jealous cuz I can't climb those pitches.

Great photos. You are getting in more skiing than me. Nothing much happening in NZ just a few man made trails to ski which I think they have a cheek to pay full price for. Fingers crossed it will snow soon.

For those of you watching the Open - a kiwi won, Micheal Campbell is a New Zealander! That is pretty cool for a small country of only 4 million. Usually the Aussies try to claim the kiwis as their own when they do well, but they can't claim Michael. He is based in the UK now so the Pomes might try and claim him but he was born and bred here in NZ, and is of Maori descent. Lately the Aussies have disowned Russell Crowe and are claiming he is a kiwi.

Hi, Julie. When are you going to come back and visit us?

It was pretty nice to see Michael Campbell win. I wasn't aware of all the ups and downs of his career. He seems like a really good guy. As for Crowe, let's just say he's a great actor and leave it at that.

Good luck with your snow, maybe Chile and Argentina could send a little your way.

Adrian and I have got tiickets booked to come to the Academy and Gathering next year. We won't have enough annual leave to come to JH, we thought we might spend a week in Colorado instead, and fly out of Denver. Are you coming to the gathering at Park City? would be great to catch up.

JH was my favourite on the last trip but there is never enough time to do everything. The trip next year will use up all my frequent flyer miles, so might have to start saving a bit harder for any trips after that. I cannot complain, in the last 6 years I have had two return trips NZ to LAX for skiing, and 3 return tickets to the Cook Islands for summer breaks. I took my partner to the Cook Islands as a consolation prize for tolerating me travelling overseas without him (and travelling with another man), my man does not ski.

[quote=Bob Peters]Max - Did you buy a Ferrari? I want a ride.

No, I have one of those 05 Legacy GT's with some extra's. Just over 300HP in a wagon. Why would I want something else, without AWD.

I will say I wouldn't mind owning a F40 and a 288GTO. Gee, if I only had money...

BTW take a Lagacy GT for a test drive, FUN!!
