Visibility wasn’t great today simply because it was snowing so damned hard today. The snow picked up throughout the day and it was really nuking at 3pm on our last lap. On our last two laps, the falling snow was wet at the bottom of the mountain. When I got home to Jackson, WY at 4:30pm, it was raining. I’m very confident tomorrow will be amazing at Jackson Hole ski resort nonetheless.
On our first lap, we could still feel the bottom down low on the mountain but the top was deep and fun. By our last lap, everything was soft – top to bottom and the top was ridiculous.
The NOAA forecast is for big snow tonight with 12-30″ of new snow in the Tetons by Wednesday morning.
