Trip Reports: A Winter In Jackson Hole, Wyoming - Winter 2009-10

I moved up to Jackson Hole, Wyoming during the winter of 2009-2010 to snowboard as much as possible.  Now that my season is wrapping up here, I have compiled this gallery of my favorite skiing and snowboarding photos from the winter, including a few shots of me snowboarding, taken by my friends.  Enjoy!

You can see lots more photos and descriptions of my various snowboarding adventures this winter on my blog, starting in the December 2009 archive, and moving forward from there.

Although I was mostly focussed on snowboarding and snowboarding photos during my winter here, I did get out for a few winter camping trips and scenic shoots.  You can see those photos in the Wyoming gallery.
