Greeting my friends. I hope this blog finds you doing well. After an amazing run in the mountains of Colorado, I figured a change of scenery was due. Craving some steeps, back-country skiing and wildlife viewing I found myself in Jackson, WY. There were definitely some mishaps and bumps in the road on this trip. Hey it’s life, it’s not perfect. But in the end, I hit the steeps, had an amazing time in the back-country and saw more wildlife up-close and personal then ever before. Jackson Hole is the real deal. It has steeps abound and back-country gate access, for expert skiers/riders who know the back-country. But as always, IF YOU DON’T KNOW, YOU DON’T GO!!! Grand Teton National Park is a special place. On the outskirts of Yellowstone, the Tetons are awe inspiring. If I didn’t mention it…the wild life viewing was top notch this trip I will be reminiscing about this for a long time to come. Anyway, here are the pics from the trip. Enjoy

Awesome pics in the blog
Thanks. We take tons of pics on each adventure. So hopefully we capture a few great ones. Received this response from someone when we asked if they had heard of our company:
Hi yea! Thrill of the mountain is so fun!!!
Didn’t know you had heard of us. But this is great. Fun and exciting is what we do. Currently accepting resumes for Director of Fun. Must be able to also write and post video and write blogs. Serious inquires only. Haha. Moving on. Received this and was not sure what to make of it regarding the blog:
Good news here and big desicions to make. Would love to bounce them off you. Thought we could talk them out.
Are the decisions anything like this? Anytime my friend.
And received this from SASS GLOBAL TRAVEL . . .not sure why though.
Thanks for coming out to Telluride for Gay Ski Week
And regarding our continued use and production of videos we’ve most definitely seen an uptick in feedback regarding them. Here’s some feedback regarding our vids.
Thinking you are probably getting pretty good feedback.
Can’t complain, nor would I.
Super cool video!! Thanks CMM
It’s fun both shooting and producing these videos.
Saw the film. Nice!
Film. Ha. All digital here. Appreciate the comment. Received this asking what we shoot with:
All shot with a GoPro?
Most videos are shot with a GoPro Hero 7 Black. Although I do shoot some video with my Samsung Galaxy S8. I always appreciate a compliment, so this was nice:
Wow awesome compilation. Getting better with your editing.
Couldn’t get much worse. Anyway, appreciate this one as well
Very well done. Thanks for sharing.
and this one
Very exciting, beautiful mountain and snow.
Exciting + Beautiful = SNOW 🙂
This was really nice . . .
Way cool, CM MAN. Nice job. A winter without the THRILL OF THE MOUNTAIN is no winter at all!!!
Thank you. We are passionate about all things winter.
The THRILL OF THE MOUNTAIN awaits you.
There continues to be an abundance of snow around. It comes in different qualities but it’s not lacking. It even comes in different shades and textures. Many resorts are still seeing great quality mid-season conditions. Although, this time of the season brings spring conditions, which exist in most places right now – Icey and firm early in the morning and slushy mashed potatoes late in the day. Everything in the middle is great. So don’t be surprised if this is what you encounter.
I am still hearing and getting messages like this daily
Snow is a beautiful thing. No doubt.
Yea, it doesn’t suck right now; that’s fa sure. It should stay good for a little bit more. So before all the snow is melted and the mountain is closed, you should come and check it out for yourself. Closing days have been announced and they are not far off. Some are in the next week or two 🙁
Get it while it’s good. Before you know it, it will be gone.
