It’s easy to know when you’re in the right place at the right time—it’s just one of those gut feelings—and when FREESKIER and Fischer Ski arrived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this weekend, we knew we hit our timing perfectly. Saturday crowds packed the tram and Bridger Gondola lines, and skiers were frothing over the chance to take turns on the new Ranger series skis.
Local professional athletes Lynsey Dyer and Sophia Schwartz were also on-hand, and showed us around the resort and sidecountry. Skiing waist-deep powder and testing out the latest skis from Fischer ensured Saturday was one of the best days of the season.
When the skiing was said-and-done, we relocated to The Mangy Moose to keep the good times rolling with an après party that had the crowd rocking late into the evening. Music by local band, Canyon Kids, gear giveaways—including three pairs of brand new Fischer skis—had folks in a frenzy. Keep scrolling to get a glimpse into the Ranger Days experience, and be sure to join us in Killington Resort on March 21st.
In the meantime, don’t forget to visit the Ranger Days microsite, complete with gear reviews and adventure travel stories, and sweepstakes: We’re giving away multiple pairs of Ranger skis, boots and a one year lease on a brand new Ford Ranger XLT.
