The Jackson Hole area received a small storm last week followed by blue skies allowing many Jackson riders and skiers to get in the higher alpine, and some of the more fun lines in the area. The moderate amount of snow received on top of the all ready deep base made for perfect alpine riding.

Cody Peak and most everything off it got hammered in the first few days of blue skies, but thats kind of how it goes around here. Inbounds was riding great after the storm, but with the easy lift access it got hammered quickly.

There are still plenty of shaded North facing stashes out there!

The past couple of days Jackson got hammered by temps and the sun. There has been an inversion in the valley since the sun started to shine, keeping lower parts of the mountains cold and foggy with the higher elevations staying warmer and sunny. Sunny aspects have been getting soft pretty early in the morning, and the north facing is staying chalky inbounds with pow on the north if you can find the untouched. There is snow in the forecast but the January thaw has been in full effect the last few days!

Not much snow this week, but with a solid base no one is complaining

If you worried about the lack of new snow, maybe you should see how everyone else is doing this season
