Regarding snowvols' post.... I've never met any locals in Jackson who had a bad attitude towards tourists. Probably because there is so much sick terrain (plenty for everyone). Winter is actually Jackson's slow season for tourism. The TGR forums might be a better bet for finding folks who live there than this one.
So you have met locals who are like yea let me show you all of my secret stashes? If so you're a liar. No one gives their spots out. Just because I don't share good information with tourists doesn't mean I have a shitty attitude I have towards them. It just means I like my spots and enjoy being able to get pow turns inbounds days after a storm. Yea go to TGR those guys always treat people with respect and new people never get "jonged"
