“The skiing above 9000′ was glorious. There was a solid base with almost 2′ of new snow and I was able to open up some big midwinter powder turns. Below that it got a little dicey and the skiing became a bit more tentative.
The Tetons have been going off this month! A storm in early October dropped around 2 feet of snow and some epic early season skiing ensued.
Then, with all the focus on the Pacific Northwest atmospheric river that brought ridiculous amounts of rain and snow to that region, the Tetons quietly got the remnants and another 2 feet fell at Targhee over several days.
More outrageous October powder skiing ensued, especially above 9000’ where the snow was dry and the base was deep. Grand Targhee is reporting 53” in October, which is 11% of their season average, and a 30” base, which is 25% of their season average.
A good start, to say the least!” – Bryan Gill, today
