This atlas is a photographic collection representing popular ski terrain in Jackson Hole. Skiing is a dangerous sport. People who ski subject themselves to risks of avalanches, extreme weather and other perils. Avalanches have killed people on ski slopes depicted in this book. The area is notorious for winter storms. Each individual must assume these risks. Backcountry travelers must use common sense and follow established safety practices. They should venture with a partner, leave word of route and expected time of return, and pay attention to the weather and the avalanche report at 307-733-2664 or jhavalanche.org to understand current conditions before departing. It is necessary to carry a map, compass, lighter, extra clothing, food and water, and other safety gear.This is not a quidebook or an avalanche index. The authors and publisher are not responsible for injury or death resulting from excursions into country shown in these photographs. Terrain depicted in these photographs is under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Forest Service, the National Park Service and private parties, each of which has its own regulations. U.S. Board of Geographic Names’ style has been retained for features named on U.S.G.S. topographic maps. Possessives are used in vernacular names.
