Jackson Hole is having an epic season, and it just started! With multiple feet of snow over the last week on top on an already deep base, locals and visitors alike basked in the best snow Jackson has seen so far this season!
Early last week conditions in the resort were interesting. Lack of snow and warm temps played there role in creating a mixed bag of conditions around all elevations and aspects. Hiking around the resort you could find pockets of fresh snow but you had to work for it. That all changed later in the week, heavy snowfall and strong winds buffed out everything, runs that were better suited for ice climbing early in the week were hosting face shots over the past few days!
The forecast for the upcoming week is looking fantastic! No mega dumps like Jackson saw over the last couple of days but cool temps, cloud cover, and a few inches refreshing the snowpack will keep Jackson skiing great! Avalanche conditions were pretty skeachy when the snow was falling the heaviest and warm temps didn’t help that, but that has seemed to calm down a notch with colder temps. As far a holiday lift lines go, the Tram line has remained pretty long, but not out of the ordinary for busy season. Most of the chair lifts have been very quick, maybe only waiting a few chairs, especially when the wind has been howling.
All and all Jackson is having a phenomenal season. With more snow in the forecast, now is the time to be here!!!
