Core riders from across the snowboard industry gathered in Jackson Hole this week for the 3rd annual Jackson Hole Pow Wow. Organized by OG shredder and JH loc Rob Kingwill, the Pow Wow offers the opportunity to test freeride, powder and splitboards on the legendary steeps and gullies of Jackson Hole. Conditions inside the resort were fast and firm but there was plenty of pow to found in the backcountry. We had a crew of Jones Women’s Ambassadors out at the Pow Wow and they took full advantage of their Women’s Solution splitboards to access the goods…

After a morning mashing tram laps and ripping ’wiggle’ lines, this crew hunted pow lines outside the gates in the afternoon - Allison Lightcap, Mariah Dugan, Halina Boyd, Iris Lazzareschi and Amber Nelson.

Smooth as butter, Halina bombs a line.

This skintrack abruptly ended in a massive glide crack. Allison and Iris negotiate the snow bridge.

Iris snaps off on a tasty wave.

Playful terrain and plenty of snow, Allison barrels into the whiteroom.

Massive chutes drop off the edges of the resort on all sides. Here’s Mariah ripping into ’Endless’ in Granite Canyon.
