Last week, Grand Targhee, Wyoming, was hit with a honkin' early-season storm, ending the cycle with somewhere in the ballpark range of 15+ powdery inches.
Never one to waste an opportunity to go skiing, professional skier Griffin Dunne hit the Ghee post-storm for some warm-up laps.
Dunne, who spent time as a competitor on the Freeride World Tour, is known for his chill, laid-back approach to skiing, dropping slashes, butters, and backflips wherever possible. The kicker -- he accomplishes all this without making it look like he's trying too hard (read: all of the above isn't easy).
Here's Dunne lacing a run on the FWT.
As for the Ghee this past week, I'm jealous. I don't really know what else to say there. First excursions of the season and 15+ inches of snow are typically mutually exclusive, so Dunne lucked out big time. I can't recall where I skied first last season, but I know it didn't involve surprisingly consistent snow coverage. In fact, it probably involved the opposite.
But hey, the ski season's barely getting started. Surely, some of the flakes that hit Wyoming will head further north next time and hit Western Montana, right? Right?!
