    IKON Bling Packet

    Just got this in today's mail. I'm going to slap that sticker on my helmet, sew that patch on my waterproof Arc'Teryx shell, and hang both the pass and the key chain on a lanyard around my neck. Then I'll be all set to jump in the tram line at Jackson Hole the upcoming second week of December.

When I realized I wasn't going to reach Jackson Hole this...

    Planning on Grand Targhee mid-January. My typical schedule is usually a Saturday evening arrival so a somewhat later night drive will be in order. That said it seems Idaho Falls to GT is pretty straight forward even though it is longer than coming from JAC. However anyone with a perspective on...
