Pole Pedal Paddle This Weekend

PPP

This is the weekend hundreds of area residents dress up in crazy costumes and participate in the 38th annual rite of spring called The Pole Pedal Paddle. It’s a tradition in Jackson Hole, held on the 2nd to last Saturday of skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The four-event race, where contestants compete either individually or in teams, consists of an alpine ski leg, a cross-country ski leg, a bicycle leg, and a boating leg.  When it was established in 1975, Pole Pedal Paddle founder Harry Baxter considered the PPP to be just a playful end to a winter at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The Pole Pedal Paddle is now a major fundraising event for the Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club which seeks to provide affordable Alpine, Freeride, Nordic and Snowboard programs to Jackson youth. The event begins from the slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort at 7:00 am and concludes with a whitewater leg in the Snake River Canyon in the early afternoon.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
