Day one of the great Teton Pass closure of 2017, which lasted 5 days in total. Teton Pass closed at 2:30am on a Tuesday for avalanche mitigation — something that Max and I didn’t realize until we arrived and found the gate down at 6:30am on our way to work in Jackson, WY. After getting the notification that the Pass wouldn’t be reopening in time to make it to work that day, we went to go skiing at Grand Targhee. Five fresh inches of wind-blown powder, some fog, and fun in the trees. This is my second season skiing off-piste powder on fat skis – and Max, as you will see, has been skiing for most of his life.
In the afternoon it started to snow again and things got a little more fluffy.
