Owen Leeper knows the meaning of ‘earn your turns’.

Last week, the big mountain skier hiked 4 and half hours up into the Tetons to find a fresh powder stash. Not bad for a Wednesday in August!

“Surprise storm dropped 14″ of snow in the mountains so I had to go ski it even though I didn’t really want to hike 6k feet vert all the way up there” Owen said in one Instagram post. “Ski cut a small slide in the middle but otherwise great snow!”

Luckily for Leeper, he’s headed to Argentina this week anyway. Always good to warm up on your home turf! Ready to ski right now? Check out some of the Southern Hemisphere options on Heli.
