It was dang cold when we pulled into Jackson Tuesday evening and after some excellent pizza at Caldera Pizza we hit the sack early anticipating some excellent turns in the near future.
Wednesday morning was a tad colder than Tuesday night - the car thermometer at the resort base showed -22! Damn!
It was tough getting the clothes situated and the gear ready without getting frostbite, but we somehow managed. We took the gondola for the first trip up, mainly because it was enclosed. Upon reaching the top of the lift, the temperature was a balmy 17 degrees - excellent. Just too make sure we weren't out of our minds, we proceeded to ski all the way down to the resort base. Yep, still freezing a$$ cold.
We took the tram up next so Dylan could check out the conditions of Corbett's Couloir. For my sake there was still a few large rocks showing, so he (we) decided to forgo risking death, but we still managed to get in some smaller couloir runs.

We skied both Wednesday and Thursday and had a blast. If the smiles are any indication...
Now where to go next year?
