I completed my last objective for this season. Although it took me until june, I finally rode the tetons.
It looked like this most of the week.
Weather finally broke on Friday.
It was a balmy 26 degrees at 5am at the trailhead. I actually had to layer up once I reached snow.
4 hours later I was ready to strap in.

After a beer of course. The label looks familiar..
I rode an S shaped line from the chute in the center of the pic.
Snow was great for june 1st. Aside from a patchh of wind damaged snow that took me for a little death slide, it was a dense settled powder/groupel. No complaints from me.
Almost back at the truck
It a great day to be out in the mountains, the powder made it even better.
4 of the 10 grizzlies Ive seen in the last 11 days. The ensuing mauling might be a fair trade off if you got to play with the little guys for a few minutes.
