Final day out with Marmot and Exum Guides in Jackson Hole
Our third and final day in Jackson Hole culminated with a guided slackcountry ski tour just outside the boundaries of Jackson Hole Ski Resort. As with the previous two days of skiing Exum Mountain Guides were in charge of keeping everyone safe and on course. With a large group of 12 media folks all clad in the latest and greatest Marmot gear it was an easy chore since most were sporting either the bright blue Marmot Nabu Jacket with Polartech Neoshell or the flouro Orange Marmot Isotherm Hoody with Polartec Alpha Insulation. We were on a mission to find some north facing pow lines while testing the limits of the Marmot gear in the gale force winds on the West ridge of Cody Peak.
