I got a chance to, left the camera at the river, should have a photo or two to show then. Love to not have to winterize a boat in Florida :)

We've got to get a set of pic's of someone snow skiin' to a dock and and getting in the a MC and rippin' a set or shredding so tricks... no CGI allowed... ;) ... Consider this a challenge..no snow or hills...in SW Chicagoland.

I love Jackson Hole. I use go to Idaho Falls for business. I would fly into Idaho Falls but out of Jackson Hole the following day and have a ski day between. However, I have not been back to The Hole since they closed down the old tram and re-opened the new one. I rode the old tram on the last day it was operational.

A couple of years back we stayed at Grand Targhee. Although smaller Grand Targhee sometimes gets better snow being on the western side of the Grand Tetons. However, as you said, the top-to-bottom at Jackson is a real kick-your-but run. Both are close enough that if you stay at one you can make a day trip to the other since it is less than an hour drive between the two - unless there is a storm in the pass.

OleMiss - Glad to have you.

The jesus costume came with a crown of thorns, but he decided to not wear them. We advertised him as Moses instead.

Some of the costumes were very tough to ride aggressively in. Here's a quick vid of a little tantrum by St. Nick. Man that beard was itchy!

I need to move. Lake is too cold and has a skim of ice on top so i can't ski, yet the ice is not thick enough to play on top of yet either.

One of the two worst parts of the year - btw skiing and hockey "season".....

mpabreo,

I sent my brother the link to your you tube video and he tells me he saw your crew out there. He was in his orange flake 77 Glastron Carlson.
