The kids like to build jumps and hit them. Unfortunately they don't always land. But it's fun anyway!
This is just a little teaser of some snowmobiling and one line down some stuff we found in the Teton Range

This avalanche pit was dug near the top of Avalanche Gulch on Targhee Pass on the 26th of January 2012. There are some definite weak layers and faceted snow that are still haunting our snowpack.
Be sure to check the avalanche forecast before getting out!

The SNO*BOTS would like not only to wish everyone a Merry Christmas but would like to give the gift of Powder! We can't make the snow fall from the sky, but here's some footy of some epic powder days from last season.
We all need to be safe out in the backcountry! What I think is important for people to realize is that they really don't wear avalanche safety gear for themselves. Obviously having the beacon will be your best hope of being found alive if you are buried, the fact is that most of this stuff is to help your friends in the event that THEY are buried, not you. If you are going to travel in the backcountry then it is imperative that you not only be equipped with all the items in the photo above, but that you also be very familiar with how to use them. In the event of an avalanche you can't wonder what it is you need to do. You need to already know!
Also, while talking about knowing how to use this stuff it's even better to know how to avoid needing to use it! "Know before you go!" as they say. Keep yourself informed of snowpack conditions all season long. Sometimes a bad layer of snow can plague the snowpack all year long. Constantly watch the local avalanche report to know what the conditions are and what the current avalanche hazard is. We hope everyone stays safe so that everyone can have fun, enjoy the incredible terrain we have in the area, and get stoked!
