The weather on Friday at Teton Village was supposed to be really, really windy so my father and I decided to ski Snow King. It's so convenient. Just walk 50 yards, put on your skis and off you go. On my first solo visit to Jackson Hole, I was off the plane and on the slopes in an hour! Last year, my flight was canceled due to equipment issues and I ended up flying to Idaho Falls where my Dad picked me up.
It was snowing and windy when we left the condo and we made our way over to the Gondola. Last year the Gondola opened and my father went up there last year so now it was my turn.
The wind was gusting at time and these snow squalls would push through limiting visibility
The only way to get back to the run that takes you back is you have to ride this weird Poma lift. By weird I mean there isn't a cable above you and a pole coming down. Instead the cable is at waist height and there is a handle you hold onto to keep disk that holds your butt in place. Easy for skiers but the snowboarders had issues.
Of course you could take one of the double black diamonds down the face to get back
