Too close to Wyoming not to climb a peak on that side of the border, so boisedoc and I hiked up Glory as an evening climb after Mount Baird earlier in the day. Got up and down just in time to beat most of the weather. Trip Report
superdave and I raced up this at 530pm barely getting back to Teton Pass before a storm hit.
Easy boot pack from WY 22 and great skiing.
Skied several times this winter. Nice bootpack to summit, super easy access!
Most long time Jacksonites have been up this mountain in all seasons, in all weather. It is about the quickest way to above timberline short of paying to ride the tram at Jackson Hole Ski Resort! With two cars, a nice south to north ridge run can be done bringing one eventually out to the Fish Creek Road.
Fun walk up. Had a great afternoon, hiked to the north summit in a snowstorm. Not too hard, it'd be a great Teton warm-up. Going down the trail when it's muddy and slippery isn't the most fun, but it's worth doing if other summits aren't in condition.
I bet the views are great from up there.
Climbed this with some buddies on snowboards while I was in a pair of boots. While they shredded down, I bounded. The best part was seeing two tiny kids with their dad riding down Glory Bowl. Teton kids are tough!
To celebrate the end of the year, my wife and I did a snowshoe to the summit. It was -10 on top, and a slight wind made it seem even colder. It was fun going back down on snowshoes, but next time we will take our skis for the descent.
Easy 2,000 foot leg stretcher from Teton pass. Went over to other bumps also. Nice few hours out in wilderness.
cruised the steep, south slope from teton pass with jim while waiting for the higher, avalanche-prone to consolidate. we weren't expecting too much, but the stunning views from the higher slopes really made our climb. one of the best summit views i've encountered.
Snowshoeing down I got some strange looks from the 40 or so people with skis on their packs. Map and pictures at http://www.willhiteweb.com/climbing/jackson_hole/mount_glory_005.htm
Climbed late winter and snowboarded down.
Climbed Glory a number of times to ski. This particular day was Super Bowl Sunday and we climbed the boot track and skied out Coal Creek. Then we drove to the top of the pass an skied the rest of the day on the other side of the highway.
Did it 2 summers ago.
Glory is nice to have a highway at its base. I have gone up there many times just to watch the sunset or just to relax. It is a fantastic ski peak and I love to ski the bowl when it is safe. I once watched a black bear walk up and over little Tuckermans bowl.
Nice short strenuous hike. I was recovering from hand surgery, so no ski for me, but looks like fun.
Climbed from Teton Pass. Wildflowers were great.
My daughter and I hiked up and crawled into the shelter on top before skiing down the Twin Slides. Fun mountain to play on. Will ski many more laps!
Great boot pack to the top! Snowboarded down to and out Coal Creek.
