There is nothing like a little adventure once all of the powder has been skied up.  Horseshoe Couloir is one of my favorites ski lines just out of bounds of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.  Horsheshoe always makes me a little nervous because you never how big the mandatory air will be.  Horseshoe looks a little like an hour glass.  The entrance is steep and funnels down to a mandatory air in the middle of the couloir.  The exit is always great skiing.

What makes the butterflies dance in your belly, is that you never know how big the mandatory air will be.  Sometimes it is 5 feet and sometimes it is 30 feet.  Always bring a rope your first time. You just never know.
