It was a mild March day when I found myself standing at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, along with hundreds of other individuals, to celebrate the lives of two amazing men, Chris Onufer and Steve Romeo. Less than a week earlier, they perished in an avalanche while ascending Ranger Peak in Grand Teton National Park. Chris was one of my best friends.

In its 13th year, the Dick’s Ditch Classic Banked Slalom event has become a staple of each year here in Jackson. When registration is full days before the event that must mean something. Pretty much if you were slacking trying to sign up the day before inspection, it was too late. See you next year.
I usually help build the course but this year i was traveling. The course was from the top of Dick’s Ditch to the South Pass Traverse.
JHMR mountain hosts are always in full force during events.

I told Mike Day i would buy him a beer if he did a method off the step up. Now all he has to do is find me.
Watch out for onlooking traffic.
I was standing in the crowd and managed to get this shot of Dan Rodosky throwing the method of the day.

In an unprecedented move Jackson Hole Mountain Resort announces the wall to wall, top to bottom opening of the mountain, this Saturday the 27th of November. Never before in the recorded history of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) has so much snow fallen so early with totals snowfall tipping the 118” mark. We are calling it Snowvember, to be followed by Deepcember. As one of the biggest storms in recent history continues to rage in Teton Village, the mountain is preparing to open all lifts including the Aerial Tram and the Gondola. This will be accompanied by the opening of all major runs including the Hobacks and Lower Faces. Jerry Blann, JHMR President adds “This is the beginning of a season without equal in Jackson Hole history. We anticipate being able to open the entire mountain in November—this has never been seen before.”
While it is certain that there will be enough snow to open the entire mountain, the intensity of the storm will need to subside in order to make the complete opening possible.
