With 35” of new snow in the past three days, and the upper mountain on hold on Monday, today at Jackson Hole promised to be a good day, and it was indeed. The entire mountain was ripping this morning, it didn’t matter where you were, the skiing was good. Tram laps were the go to first thing, with Rendezvous Bowl offering smooth soft high speed ripping snow. Cheyenne Bowl offered deep hero snow for hucking the many cliffs throughout.

The Hobacks were ripping all morning, as well as the many ridges and bowls leading down to the bottom. Sublette Chair had a late opening which left fresh snow to be found if you went poking around a bit. Alta Chutes were closed from the top, but traversing below the chutes led to many hucks and fresh turns to be found everywhere, even after 1:30pm.

Warmer temperatures led to hot pow on the bottom quarter of the mountain, making for leg burning turns back to the tram. Up high however, the snow stayed cold and made for great skiing all day. With 207” for the season so far, Jackson is shaping up nicely with as solid base and everything is filling in just right. And with a chance of snow for the weekend, next week looks like it could be another ripping week at Jackson Hole.

  1. Love the Jackson snacks, yeee haaawww

    notice how on the Jackson website when they do the comparison snowfall totals, Squaw Valley in Tahoe isn’t even on the list, bwahahahahahahahaha, too bad for them, sounds like another meager winter.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
