Today was yet another fine day in the backcountry. The Tetons are truly a magical place with an abundance of great skiing. We skied from about 50 feet from the summit of Albright today with what seemed to be close to two feet of powder up high. Dropped early because it seemed a bit loaded up and the mountain isn't going anywhere. Just happy to be there.

Route up Albright Peak in red, down in yellow:

Just shy of the summit. The crew decided to back off for today.

Dropping the gut turned out so nice with oh so much vertical. Just powder skiing and riding today:

Nice views of Phelps Lake coming down:

And a wonderful drive home with fantastic scenery

Nice Wyo! I wish I knew you guys were going up to the park. I was up in Garnet yesterday to the platforms. Things were pretty crappy up high it seemed.

Look forward to meeting everyone on Friday!
