Day off
Had a day off today. Gaelle's flight home was early afternoon :( so we had a late breakfast at Bubba's and then her AllTrans taxi took her off to the airport :( . I sorted out some paperwork and filled...

When I went to get the bus from Cowboy Village to the Jackson Hole base area at Teton Village this morning it was raining... At first it looked like wet snow, but as I stepped out of the cabin it...

Two for the price of one
The guy who's replacing me as the Ski Club rep here in Jackson Hole, and who'll be here for the next 3 weeks, arrived today and skied with us today. Apart from that, the group was the core of 4...

Week 16
My last week as the Ski Club of Great Britain Rep for Jackson Hole and this week felt like a real week of repping as I had a slightly more 'normal' mix of members rather than the two weeks of...
