LSU has been trending upwards. Bama downwards. Seems we’re gonna meet somewhere around the middle November 5th. Glad y’all hit your stride and the game has some umph behind it! ...

A month or so of mainly high pressure has led to low tide, but great stability and weather to head high into the Tetons. Here's my visual spraydown of some of the action. [img]https://i.imgur.com/2j7vFLn.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/GYXEtfD.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/F9S2zlV.j...

re: 2020-2021 ski thread - bamafan425
My first season with no resort ski pass, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I've ski'd nothing but great snow in the backcountry, and my fitness is gonna be through the roof when its time to go big this spring. Looking to tackle the two highest peaks in Wyoming -- Gannett in the Wind River ...

re: Jackson Hole-car rental or no? - bamafan425
Jackson local here. I'd say yes to renting a car. You don't want to be on the bus into town during these times, and there are not that many Ubers/taxis roaming around Jackson. Most of GTNP is also closed in the winter time. There are still a few low elevation trails and "hikes" you can check out...
