Winter Trail Running in Jackson Hole

Hi all - I am in the process of finalizing my Summer Run Camp schedule and as my mind is on summer, I thought I would post a short slide show of a great run I had during the holidays for everyone to get a glimps of my world and the Tetons under snow. Unlike most of the country, we have had an unusually dry and warm winter thus far in Teton Valley and trail running has been awesome!
Enjoy - E

As planned, I tried out my Vibrams on the snowmobile trails last week and had a ball! My dog was able to run free and snoot around, so he was deliriously happy, and I felt so joyous running on the snow. It was not as packed as it usually is, so I fell through a few times, but that just made me laugh. The trail I was on was right next to a brook the whole way and the evergreens were heavy with snow.

I just know that if any snowmobilers slowed down to look at the tracks, they were thinking there was a Baby Sasquatch on the trail. With its four-legged side kick!

Just got my Vibrams last night and was planning on running the snowmobile trails here in Vermont this afternoon. Thanks for the extra inspiration!

It's funny cuz i'm running in the same conditions here in east canada! There is a nice,very long and well packed snowmobile trail just a bloc away from home! It's where i'm doing the most of my runs in winter time! I really like that, the packed snow offers a soft, impact absorbing ground wich do a great job at strenghtning your ankels. Eric, i'm curious, have you ever tryed kathoola micro spikes? I find them more than really usefull when running in the snow, esspecially on uneaven slippery snowy trails!

I hope one of those running camps is going to be in Washington. You have more than a few fans up here, not to mention Scott Jurek and Barefoot Ted in Seattle.

This is truly bad ass! There is something totally freeing about running in the snow!

Well done! I am inspired to do some snow running. I will have to look for this song. 4 Non Blondes?
