Jackson Hole Backcountry

Prepping for a long walk off the Jackson Hole resort, Jones is going where—he freely admits—plenty have gone before. But as more and more of his seasons are taken up with hiking projects, Jones will soon find himself in parts of the Teton Range that you can't access with snowmobiles, snowcats, or a tram. And those parts make these parts look like Vermont. (Dan Milner)
