Ho-hum. Another Jackson Hole Powder Day

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 


It did not suck.

Here's a view of Corbet's Couloir from the top of the Bridger Gondola this morning:




And here's a view looking south from the top of the ski resort. Our destination is the second ridgeline from the front of this photo. We're headed for Pinedale Bowl, which is just this side of that ridgeline.




Kind of an interesting little sidenote to the photo above is that there are two lines on the nearest ridgeline that were skied just before this photo was taken. The fairly obvious couloir in that lower cliff band is called Fat Bastard. The less obvious rocky face to the right of Fat Bastard is called Cowboys and Indians (don't ask me). Both were skied shortly before we got there and both had what looks like small sluffs from this far away.

To put a little perspective into that photo, here's a blowup. Fat Bastard on the left and Cowboys and Indians on the right:




So here's what we found when we got to base of Cowboys and Indians. Pretty good-sized debris pile from that little sluff and nice ski tracks coming out from where the snow deposited. It would have been quite interesting to watch that skier put down those tracks, I think. :



And this is a photo of Rendezvous Peak (three peaks south of the top of our ski resort). The fairly obvious left-center couloir coming down through that cliff band is called Patty's Couloir. I was part of the party that named it because we skied it on St. Patrick's Day about 25 years ago.



But the point of this trip was not to sightsee. We came here for the skiing. Here's a fun little sequence of Bill in Pinedale Canyon. Coming out of the trees and dropping into his line:



Aaaaaoooooooogah. Down scope. Dive the boat!




Submersion:



And resurfacing:



I might add that the guy in these photos celebrated his 70th birthday a few months ago.

More to come. On the next post, there are actually photos of me skiing.

Very Nice Bob.

Were they taken with your Rebel xti?

Targhee has had similar conditions the past two days. Although at my house it was -20.3 F this morning with a high of 4 F.

Yes, sir. I love it.

Continuing on...

So this time, one of my compadres was willing the carry the camera a couple of times. I'm almost never on the far side of the viewfinder, so it was nice to have such a beautiful day:















Whoo Hoo.

Bob,

Nice to see pics of you skiing - better however to be skiing that with you

Tell Bill that I thought that is a great photo sequence (and that he looks like he's skiing faster than you )

C'mon Lonnie, Let's get some basic MA here. No expert skis powder with their jacket open like that. The trouble probably is that Bob doesn't have enough experience giving the camera to someone else to snap some shots. (Note that like any good MA I've gone straight to the root of the problem).

No words, sir! =)

I always wonder how many GOOD skiers there are at the Big One. The Corbet`s couloir is totally tracked out in less than a day!

Just how tasty was that pow? Looks like nice whipped cream! Sweet, Bob, you are my hero! Also, Bill is awesome. We skied a couple runs with the good "mayor" last week along with Bob. I can't wait till I'm 70 so I can ski like that!

Saweeeet!

Hey Bob I hope you remember to pack your Midas Touch for Utah. A few nice dumps like that would make the Utah Gathering something to remember!

Bob "Ullr" Peters!!
