More business to do in town today, then heading back home with NO travel on deathrace I-80. Morning fashion report here at Pearl Street Bagels: Cloudveil ratio about 1 in 9, North Face puff jackets popular, nearly 100% earth tone except for one snowboarder’s orange baggies… Some photos from the last few days:
|Teton Pass area yesterday, we skied the open area off the ridge in photo, known as the Doits. Teton pass has hundreds of runs just like this.|
|Blues Traveler concert at Jackson Hole Resort, 5,000 people showed up.|
|Reiner Gerstner of Dynafit and Drew of Life-Link, yep, that’s a Cloudveil jacket Drew is sporting.|
|I’ll admit it, spent a few hours yesterday checking out the machinery at the snowmobile hillclimb World Championships. This race rig was for sale, if you like being dragged by a rope at 90 mph it would make a good backcountry tow rig.|
