jackson/wimpy's knob

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
just got back from JH
one day I took a guided trip to wimpy's knob

6,473 ft. start

10,080 ft. summit

about 4500 vertical on skins and tour skis. took almost 6 h to climb

the way down........priceless: virgin pow, unreal.........

I've never done the tour skis, but enjoyed every single moment of it> got to the top of WK totally exausted, but as soon as we started the descent , the new endorphin rush did the trick!!!!

the trip was possible thanks to th epeople from jackson hole mountain guide....... the office of the group looks........decieving , but the quality of the guides is more than excellent: the person I claimbed with, Greg Collins, is probably one of the top in the business in the USA........

one of the best days in my life......

BTW: did anybody from this forum skied in JH wearing "blue knob racing club " jacket??

Wimpys is a great ski. One of many tasty backcountry treats in the Teton area. I'm glad you had a fun and safe trip. Where are the photos?

That was me in the Blue Knob Race Team jacket...

We skied at the village from 12/24 through 12/30. My daughter is the racer, not me, but I still get a jacket.
