Powder and Ice

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Today was the last day on the hill in Jackson. In the morning, we did some warmup runs on AV chair, but it was pretty crappy. Freezing level was relatively high, so the lower parts didn’t get much snow and were pretty hard and icy. After lunch, I headed up by myself to the top, [...]

Wildlife Safari in Jackson

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

This morning we went out on a wildlife tour in Teton National Park organized by our hotel, Spring Creek Ranch.

Pigs and Dentistry

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

Five dollar muffins and other fun Jackson Hole stuff

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

Meagan and I arrived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming yesterday morning. We rushed to the airport to catch the 7:20 am flight and I pretty much snoozed on both flights since I was up late the night before finishing up work and packing. We got to Jackson, picked up the rental minivan (prelude to the Lexus?). [...]
