Jackson Hole recieved a little over a foot of the white stuff last week reminding us that winter is not over yet. The 300″ mark was crossed with the last system coming through mid week bringing a much needed refresh to the area. The first significant snowfall in weeks covered the mess left behind by a early spring thaw and reminded us that it is still ski season. The new snow fell on top of a refrozen crust from the warm temps over the weeks before, but the amount we received did a good job covering the firmness up. The slick crusts under the new snow combined with warm temps allowed the snow to easily move upon the older layer.
Warm temperatures did make their appearance after the system moved through. The past few days tempertures have been above average, the new snow accordingly did not stay fresh for long. Spring corn has prevailed since the storm and the resort skiing has been becoming great after the sun loosens up the snow.
The forecast holds promise for the coming week! The lifts stop spinning this Sunday, April 5th and with snow forecasted to hit the area a few days before closing day it could get pretty exciting!
