Jackson Hole Wiggle
Shared By: Jackson Hole | April 01, 2015
The first known wiggle at JHMR and the most prominently known wiggle was created in the mid- 90â??s when ski patroller â??Big Wallyâ? Mark Wolling would set up black marking disks, aka â??doingers,â? evenly spaced on a perfectly vertical line down the center of Rendezvous Bowl. Since then, the doingers have been set up the same way and during melt freeze cycles the â??worker wiggleâ? will be set in around these markers. The resulting path becomes a smooth surface to ski the bowl, especially for workers when it is re-frozen in the morning hours, hence the name â??worker wiggleâ?. Since approximately the early 2000â??s, the wiggle has become a more popular run among guests and workers alike. By the end of the ski season the banks can be up to 4-5 feet deep in places and can be seen from the valley floor. According to long time ski patroller, Tom Bartlett, this yearâ??s wiggle is comparable in size to years past.
