Yet another Jackson Hole trip report...

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
EpicSkier Eug is here with his 8-year-old son and I skied with them for awhile yesterday morning. Eug skied here in the 2004 Gathering and a couple times since, but this is his son's first visit.

We've had about 24" of new snow since Sunday and things were GOOD.

Here's a two-turn sequence of Eug on South Hoback:









And here's son-of-Eug on Sublette. This little kid is a riot to ski with:





Hucker:



Thanks, you two.

this TR is great example of why parents should learn how to ski before skiing with their kids.

Great skier for a dad equals a great kid!

Good pictures Bob.

when I final get to ski soft snow with enough hill to turn on its going to be so easy. I am getting sick and tired of not having enough gravity to do turns I want to do.

Gotta love it when you get the opportunity to meet kids that have the stuff to STOMP the hill...

The hucking pic is a classic, but you gotta love the second shot in the pow - it looks link he'd sink below the surface if he stops.

How old is his son?

Not bad. Looks like Eug could use a couple DOG breakfast burritos to me though. Meat to be exact. Otherwise, pretty rippin'

Bob, Do you moonlight as a Sharpshooter? These are very professional looking pics. The Hucker shot could be a magazine cover. Are these taken with a DSLR?

For those of you who asked, the kid is eight years old. Isn't that amazing? Yesterday, he would occasionally run into some untracked stuff that was basically waist-deep on him.

If you watch him ski, you can tell he's just always looking ahead for either pockets of powder in the trees or kickers to jump off or both. The kid has no fear and he's FAST. Dad has done a good job in raising a hotshot skier.

Thanks for the compliment, liv4ski. It is a DSLR (Canon Digital Rebel XTi), which thankfully seems to be an extremely durable piece of equipment because I carry it almost all the time and I certainly don't baby it.

As to the pics, I'm a huge believer in the volume theory of digital photography. I'll typically fire off a couple hundred images when I go skiing with someone. Combine that with the crop and exposure correct features of Microsoft Picture Manager, and I'll occasionally get some pretty fun photos.

It also helps to have a subject who's as enthusiastic and full of fun as Eug's son. He's just a real kick to ski with and man-o-man is that kid going to be a good skier in a few years.

I had so much fun yesterday that today my wife and I joined Eug and his son for a quick tour out of bounds (yes, the kid has a beacon).

Here are a couple more photos from today:

Eug:



Son of Eug jumping (again ):



And coming through a terrain feature called Split Rock:



Kid stoke!

The last pic of that kid airing it out is awesome. EUG has a natural skier on his hands. The kid is very comfortable in the air.
