Snowshoeing in Grand Teton National Park

While I did spend a season working in Breckenridge with Peak 8 as my “office”, skiing/snowboarding isn’t really my jam. I LOVE the idea of being a snowboarder, and for 7 months I tried really hard to actually be one. But I wasn’t and I’m not. I just couldn’t get over this threshold of going from decent to really good, and while that really pissed me off, I found I loved other mountain town things so much more.

So, I transferred my season pass to Tommy so Jes and I could go snowshoeing.

We dropped the boys off at the base of the mountain and headed the mile to the entrance of Grand Teton National Park. Rolling up, we saw that a day pass entrance was $22. BUT it was Presidents Day, so it was free. Yippee!

While I’m not hurting for Benjamin’s, I luuhhooovve me a good deal.

We have no idea where we are going, so just drive until it dead ends, look at a map and start hiking. First, it was fucking BEAUTIFUL there. Plus, there was no one else out, making it incredible peaceful. We made a loose plan for a loop that took us to the corner of Phelps Lake. Which appeared frozen, but we didn’t test it.

It ended up being a 6 mile loop. We were exhausted at the end, but it was worth it.
