Go Time in GTNP-Tying the ‘Not

[ 0 ] June 6, 2011 |

The high country of Grand Teton National Park has largely been an ‘absolute no go!’ over the past two months due to low viz, incessant snow, isothermic snowpack and various combos of the above. Finally, during the first week of June, the sky cleared and temps settled into a stabilizing melt/freeze cycle for at least a few days.

Needless to say, mountain shredders who have been pent up and awaiting the $ time to lay down tracks on big lines emerged in hordes ravenous enough to impress the likes Attila or Genghis.

From June 1 – 5, Ungrounded contributors got it done on several classic Teton descents – on the East Face of Teewinot, the Skillet Glacier on Mt. Moran, and the Northeast Snowfields of Mt. Owen. Some of us made just one of these and a few rallied for double duty – but all of these journeys look so damn good that we wish we could have done em all. Just give us one more window, dammit!

Anyhow, we are compiling a ton of footage for a banger ‘winter part 2′ edit. But meanwhile, enjoy a three part photo gallery series from these excursions beginning with Teewinot. Props to the bruiser team team of Ryan Halverson, Randy Shacket, Matt Poluga, Jamie Culp & Jake Szarzec for getting this one done. Photos courtesy of Randy S & Ryan H/Full Room Productions.
