Jackson Hole has had no lack of POW the month of December! Skier: Bryce Newcomb

DEEPcember is living up to it’s name once again in Jackson Hole  as the Teton mountains are seeing the second snowiest December in over 40 years! Since a late opening early this season the snow hasn’t stopped, with 21 FEET of snow so far for the season the pow riding has been plentiful, and early season obstacles have vanished under a thick blanket of snow.

The coverage on the mountain is that which you would normally find toward the end of January and February. Everything is OPEN, from the Lower faces, Hobacks to Corbets Couloir, and even the rocky low elevations of Saratoga Bowl. Top to bottom and side to side the resort has been filled with pow!

There have been a few days of blues skies in December, but mostly stormy storm skiing.

Storms have been wallowing the Tetons over the past weeks, with a few days of sunshine in between systems. The forecast over the next week looks like the sun with be a little more dominate than previous week with little blasts of snow every few days.
