Hundred Days



The Mountain Pulse Jackson Hole

Just before noon, the digital thermometer reported 7 degrees on the top of Rendezvous Mountain, though westerly gusts made that seven feel more like zero. Skating across the upper traverse, the wind seemed to freeze anything left exposed, nose hairs and all! While reprieve from the cold was found on the descent, most inbound terrain was hard and unforgiving. Stashes were still available out the gates, offering riders a few weightless turns on this snowless day in the Village.
This lapse in snowfall affords backcountry posses an opportune time to practice rescue scenarios with beacon, probes and shovels. Repetition fortifies these skills, improving their effectiveness in the event of an avalanche.

  1. One has to be pretty disipline to go out in the frigid air and practise avalanche survival!
