Turning the corner

In case you needed a quick tutorial on the enormous power and scope of avalanches, this incredible video of control work on Kootenay Pass should do the trick.

Here is an article from Money/cnn.com on the continuing rebound of the housing market.

Another article on the benefits of buying versus renting.  It doesn't really pertain to the Jackson market, but it’s interesting nonetheless

And another from Fortune Magazine which says despite prices staying stagnate, the housing market has in fact turned the corner.

I had the very good fortune to spend 7 days in Verbier, Switzerland earlier this month.  Having never skied in Europe before, to say I was blown away is a huge understatement. The terrain is unbelievable and it seems to go on forever.  Jackson Hole is a very big mountain, but the Alps are a whole different program.   Here are a few pictures.  (The first one was taken at 5 PM, the last run of the day and we had 2000′ of steep, untracked, boot top powder!)

I would also be remiss if I didn't mention Jack Shaw and Susanna Magruder of Epic Europe who organized our trip and did an outstanding job with lodging (perfect), guides (the very best), restaurants(awesome) and just about everything else.  If you're thinking of going to Verbier or anywhere else in Europe, you need to contact them- epiceurope.com or find them on Facebook.  Having someone on the ground before we got there was invaluable!

    It was great to make some turns with you here, Jack. I'm glad we were able to ski tour a bit to get to the good snow. Have a great rest of the winter season. We are getting into rock climbing mode here, even though the skiing will last another 2 months. Green grass in the valley floors and deep snow on the peaks. Perfect season! Hope to see you here again next year.

    Wow, that was some serious white powder!
