Backcountry skiing in Idaho

Christmas is just around the corner! Instead of buying each other gifts, we decided to take a mini-vacation! We started this tradition last year but we didn't travel anywhere (we stayed home and enjoyed our little cabin in the woods.) This year, however, we ventured to the Teton Mountains near Driggs, Idaho. We spent a few days back country skiing and playing in the snow. This was our first time skiing for the winter and the powder was deep, fluffy and fun.

Mindy is getting used to skiing in the back country! Ryan still encourages her to overcome the fear of "Snow suffocation" and to be aggressive.

Ryan is looking good tele style. I think he's having fun in the powder.

Overall we had a great trip and just touched the surface of the back country potential outside of Driggs. We'll be back.
