Bird’s eye view of Barker-Ewing Whitewater

February 4th, 2011

Although winter is not over, our blog hiatus is! A couple months of holiday r&r have left us inspired, energized and excited for the 2011 summer season. While Jackson Hole and the rest of the country continues to endure severe cold blasts, we bundle up with our cups of coffee and plan on how to make this summer a season of warm & fuzzy feelings!

Do you have any ideas you’d like to share with us? We love great ideas! Share here.

A ‘Hole’ Lot of Snow!

December 1st, 2010

When the town of Jackson’s streets are covered in snow, the plows and Sorels are out and about, and I spend my mornings shoveling an entrance into my driveway in NOVEMBER, you know there’s a lot of snow! Climb a few thousand feet in elevation and you’re easily knee deep on up in powder. For the sixth time in 45 years, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort opened the entire ski hill from top to bottom. For the first time in 45 years, the resort opened the whole ski hill in November – history in the making! Working at the mountain on opening day, I watched the tram line extend all the way to the parking lot. It was quite a show, as was my attempt to get down the powder-filled mountain for the first time all season in new boots… if anyone was watching! Well, get out there and enjoy the snow… it’s December 1, and the snow’s not slowing down anytime soon!

End of season pig roast!

September 19th, 2010

Sam Davies from Rexburg, Idaho was the man of the evening last night. Boy, can he roast a pig! Thanks to the Ewing family for hosting such a fun end of the season employee party. Croquet, cornhole and a little frisbee throwing while the sun was out… by nightfall, though, my toes were frozen standing in the grass. This morning, my car windshield was iced over, just another sign that winter is on it’s way. Well… just a few more scenic and whitewater trips for the season. Thank you to everyone who made this summer, and the pig roast, a big success!

Floating with a 7 year old…

September 13th, 2010

A picture is worth a thousand words…

Mac (Barker-Ewing’s guide in training) has floated with Barker-Ewing River Trips since he was 4! He usually prefers being the “hood ornament” on whitewater trips, but this day, his mom talked him into a scenic float. He enjoyed the eagles, osprey, mergansers and beaver before a 10-minute shower overtook the raft. As part of his recovery from the rain, Jeremy handed him the oars… Mac has now had his first toughening experience to being an all-weather guide for Barker-Ewing!

Congratulations, Natalie & Neill!

September 6th, 2010
