Jackson Hole: One Man’s Paradise

Have you ever thought about a famous ski resort and asked yourself, “I wonder what it was like to ski that mountain before it was discovered?”

In the final Magazine installment based on his mid-December trip to Wyoming, James interviews Bob Peters — who bought property at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in 1974 and has skied, taught, and/or guided at the mountain ever since.

If you’re a fan of Jackson Hole or planning to be one in the near future (I’m in the second category), this article is a must-read.

The Mountains Less Traveled: Teton Powder Keg

You may remember the trip reports that James posted in the forum about his vacation in Wyoming last month. In his new “Mountains Less Traveled” feature, he writes about how his first cat-skiing experience — seven hours of untracked powder — had a big impact on him.

The Mountains Less Traveled: Snow King, WY

This week, Jamesdeluxe is on his first destination trip of the 2010-11 season, visiting one of his favorite western ski towns: Jackson, WY.

The big show, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, is about 20 minutes away, but only a few blocks from the village square is a classic local hill that fits right into our Mountains Less Traveled series: Snow King.
