Jackson Hole, like Whistler, gets a lot of hype but man, does this place deserve it. Steep as all get out and with the lightest, coldest powder you can imagine, JHMR should be on every solid shredder's must-ride list. The new Stash park means that hardcore locs like Rob Kingwill, Travis Rice, and Bryan Iguchi can ride it all, Wyoming-style. We just wish they'd bring back the Natural Selection contest-easily the coolest shred contest we've ever seen. If you truly love mountains, you truly have to get your ass to Jackson. Just leave your attitude and the beginners at home.
