Full review

I just spent the better part of a week at Jackson Hole and like many parts of the West this has not been a great year for snow. This is a partiuclar problem for a place with so much steep terrain. With less than normal snowfall the expert slopes are bascically large frozen moguls, which only a very few skiers do well. The situation would be helped by more high-angle grooming that would open more terrain to more people. If nothing else, I suggest that Rendezvous Bowl but at least partially groomed. The Tram which takes skiers to it, is portrayed as a major feature of the resort yet when most skiers get to the top, they have a great deal of difficulty getting down when there hasn't been much snow. It just makes sense to make the Bowl more accessible, which would lead to a more enjoyable sking experience for all who venture to Jackson Hole.
