This was my first winter living in the Jackson Hole/Teton Valley area. On this day, our friend Andrew took us backcountry snowboarding in Bridger-Teton National Forest. A local with more experience in the sport, Andrew suggested this route. After a couple hours of skinning uphill, we came out to this ridge to get a better view of where we wanted to ride back down. This was the scene in front of us. The pristine snow-covered slopes, the sea of trees, the mountains, and particularly the lighting just stopped me in my tracks – it was stunning. I’ve always perceived snow as restricting my access to the outdoors - trails become hidden and trailheads get snowed in. But backcountry touring has made me realize how untrue that is. The snow completely changes the landscape, and in ways actually opens up the outdoors.  I’m no longer limited to stay on actual trails and follow trail blazes. As long as I take the necessary precautions for avalanche risks, there’s much more to venture out to.
