Spring Break Trip 2017 to Jackson Hole, WY


The crown jewel of our club, the annual Hoofer SnS Spring Break trip is back for the 52nttime! There is nothing better than the tradition that Hoofers has created with the Jackson community. If you like deep snow, backcountry, sick vertical, and a classic ski town experience, Jackson is the trip for you. Furthermore, who wants to go lie on the beach for spring break when you could be riding the pow and shredding the gnar at one of the most bodacious mountain resorts in the entire world. Home of Teton Gravity Research and some rocking’ cowboys, Jackson Hole is 10,000 feet closer to the sun and will knock your socks off! Jackson Hole has 2500 acres in bounds, its 4,139 continuous vertical feet from top to bottom, and gets 400+ inches of snow per year. Plus an additional easily accessible 3000 acres out of bounds. Now... you might say "gee isn't going out of bounds against the rules?" Not at Jackson Hole! They have gates that you are allowed to use to access the out of bounds area, but remember your avalanche gear. More info can be found at Jackson Hole's website If you are not sold yet, ask any past participant from the trip regarding how awesome it is and I will guarantee you the conversation will be followed with a 10-20 minute story about a powder day followed by a social in Jackson.
