Video: La Nina Is Back At Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

November 28, 2011

It's game on in the Tetons. We're finally skiing, busting out laps at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. You can almost hear the collective steam release from each person's personal pressure valve. That may sound dirty, but it's true. Sliding on snow changes your state of mind. Everyone's a bit more positive around here. Everyone's a bit calmer. People are smiling. The Village Cafe is serving slices again and people are apres skiing just a few hundred feet from this office right now. It's Monday. Fuck yeah. 

JHMR made this video to kick off the season. As you probably read on every other ski blog, La Nina is back. And that means big snow for the West this winter season. Right now, there's not a ton of snow, but there is enough coverage that the resort opened with 3,000 vertical feet of terrain, or to the top of Thunder Chairlift.

Watch as JHMR athletes Adam Dowell and Lynsey Dyer sample the goods early and Jim Woodmencey of Mountainweather.com confirms that we're set for some solid precipitation in the Tetons. Bridger-Teton National Forest lead avalanche forecaster Bob Comey briefs the ski patrol and electronic duo Javelin provides the magical vibe at the end with the song "Lindsay Brohan." Can't wait to see how this season plays out.
