Jackson Hole resort received 3-4 FEET of snow over the last week!! Snow fell 9 consecutive days in a row allowing the resort to open the majority of the terrain on the mountain including the Hobacks and Lower Faces. Total snowfall for the year at the top of the mountain is 162 inch’s with a base of 68 inch’s. While the last week of riding in Jackson Hole has been nothing short of epic, the whole month of December did not disappoint! With consistent snowfall, new terrain opening every few days including that serviced by the new Teton lift, and walk on Trams Jackson has had an incredible start to this season!
The week started with heavy snowfall and incredible storm riding! Base depths started low and early season conditions were apparent early in the week, but by the weekend it felt more like mid season with good coverage on all aspects.
A high pressure system moved into the area at the end of the holiday week turing the skies blue and bringing colder temps with it. This week looks to hold that pattern of sunny skies with the possibly of some light snow mid week. Temperates are expected to be quite cold which should help preserve snow quality over this sunny period.
There are a few areas of the mountain that have not opened yet! If you missed the pow this past week there are still a few zones on the hill holding the untouched. Areas like Casper Bowl, Saratoga Bowl, and Coberts Couloir have yet to see openings and are looking incredible. So look for those to open soon!
