A Beautiful Moment on Cody Peak

The Grand Teton Peaking Out of the Clouds 12-15-2014

All I wanted to do was “Ride the Tram, and Ski Bowl.” I have been skiing a lot in the backcountry lately, due to high pressure that has settled into Jackson for the last week. I was feeling like I needed to ski fast and get my legs in shape as opposed to hiking for powder. My friends had different plans. When I arrived at the tram dock with my Mantras (my Jackson Hole hard pack ski), the boys looked at me and said Jess go get your Shiros. We were going for a hike. When I reached the top of Cody Peak, I definitely didn’t regret our decision. The view of the Grand Teton poking out of the inversion was a view that you rarely see in Jackson Hole. It was breathe taking!
