Tim Durtschi Hot Laps Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Next Up

Paradise Waits is now available for digital download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and more! To celebrate the release, we're releasing a segment of the film created in partnership with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The segment follows professional skier Tim Durtschi on an entire tram lap, from bottom to top and back down again, providing a view of his rapid freestyle descent.

A top-to-bottom lap without stopping is no easy task and racing the tram down the entirety of Jackson Hole's vertical gain is what most dedicated locals call a "high-speed tram lap". There are numerous ways to attempt beating the tram down the mountain, but Durtschi demonstrates the most direct route, linking various runs from atop the tram at 10,450 feet to reach the bar over 4,400 feet below, in under ten minutes. His route of choice began from the waffle house in Corbet's Cabin, then enters into Corbet's Couloir and over the Tensleep Booter on Meet Your Maker, the Downhill Chute into The Amphitheater, into to Dick's Ditch, and finishes in Teton Village.
