The first trip my wife and I took together before we were married was to Jackson. She was really freaked because everyone told her how tough it was and how you had to be "really good" to ski there. It took 3 days to calm her down. We never did go up the tram that trip.
Five years later we were there again and she laughed as her daughters who were racers struggled to get down the bumps on Rendevous Bowl.
I understand The Rocky Mountain Oyster is no more.
It'll be interesting to see what other changes have occurred.
I remember the spring of 74 after a day at Targhee. I curled up for the night next to Denny's wood stove in his place in Wilson with a dog under each arm. That was when they still had the signs "Yonder lies Jackson Hole, the last of the old west". The next spring they had a powder dump while I was there and you could still find fresh tracks for three days.(now there's moguls on Rendevous)(back then the only bumps were on Thunder)
My friend Denny who ran the "Oyster" and the Cafe Sport at the Aspens is selling real estate in Ft Meyers Florida He had a stroke a couple years ago. No more skiing for him.
The Sojourner used to have all the pancakes you could eat for $3. Pepi was the fastest NASTAR pacesetter in the country.
Can't remember the name of the run that Corbet's empties into but I remember the big rock near the bottom where the snow blew around. I ended up upside down with my ski tips on the rock and the tails on the snow hanging from the bindings.
Enough reminising, got to get there. My wife's putting in for the time off. Keeping my fingers crossed.
