The past week started by ending a huge powder cycle that Jackson has been in the middle of. Overcast and snowy skies were replace by clear skies at higher elevation and a fog that lingered in the valley. The Sea of Dreams as it is known in these parts stayed with us most of the week with the exception of a few days where overcast skies prevailed.
Snowfall over the last week was the lowest we have seen maybe since it started snowing for the season. That being said there is still some really good snow out there. Cold temps and small crowds have helped preserve the snowpack. North facing aspects are still holding very strong with minimal crust, and if you go looking for it there is still plenty of pow to be found on these aspects. Other aspects especially those that see more sun have taken a little bit of a beating, firm sun crust in the morning that is getting softer by mid day to afternoon. Groomers have in all time! (sorry for the lack of groomer pictures your just going to have to take my word).
The week ahead holds a little promise of snow toward the weekend. Hopefully that chance of snow starts getting higher. The snowpack should hold strong with the cold temps this week and a deep base. Jackson has had an excellent season so far and the blue skies will just allow you explore a little deeper!!
