Bryce Newcomb woke up after a few days of snow to find blue skies and ski patrol opening new terrain at the resort! 17 inches since the previous morning to be exact!

After a late opening this season due to lack of snow and unseasonably warm temperatures, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort opened it’s doors to hungry skiers and riders as mother nature has turned a 360! The snow has been piling up in the Tetons and more is on the way as the lifts are spinning, and more terrain is opened at the resort every day! So far the the resort has opened Teewinot, Apres Vous, Casper, and Teton lifts servicing the more northern end of the resort. Snow making has allowed a few runs to open down to the base with natural snow opening a lot of the higher terrain in this area. The resort opened this past Thursday with 2 lifts serving runs on mostly man made snow, but a storm over the week dropped almost 2 feet of snow on the area allowing much more terrain to be opened. The upper parts of the resort are looking nicely covered, and with a storm system on it’s way by the weekend we might see some more major parts of the mountain open soon.

SNOW REPORT

Lots of snow the part few days! While the season total may be high, our depth is a little shallow due to high early October snow, much of which melted before recent storms.

FORECAST

The purple spot in the upper left hand corner is the Teton Range, the resort sits just on the southern end of this deeper zone in the region.
