Rumors are circulating around Jackson, WY right now about Jackson Hole ski resort possibly opening the lower mountain tomorrow. There are also rumors of some really big avalanches that have been occurring on the mountain (6′ deep crowns?). And even rumors that the upper mountain has seen 53″ of snow since Tuesday.
Jackson Hole has taken down all its webcams so we’re unable to see what’s happening up there. The rain has stopped here in Jackson today its currently party cloudy.
Jackson Hole is reporting today that all the 17 power poles have been replaced and that Teton Village should have power this evening:
“Lower Valley Energy crews are working around the clock on returning power to the area as soon as possible, and by this morning all of the new temporary poles are in place. Lower Valley Energy is still hopeful to restore power to Teton Village as early as this evening.” – Jackson Hole, WY today
It sounds like power may have already been restored to Teton Village after being out since Tuesday at 5pm.
Jackson Hole is scheduled to reopen on Monday after having been closed since this past Tuesday.
Jackson Hole is reporting 38″ of new snow up top since Tuesday.
JACKSON HOLE PRESS RELEASE:
“JHMR remains closed today and is still targeting a Monday reopening. With 7 inches of new snow on the upper mountain in the last 24 hours Patrol is conducting avalanche mitigation work again today, and mountain operations staff will be on the mountain starting to dig out signs, buildings and lifts. Lower Valley Energy crews are working around the clock on returning power to the area as soon as possible, and by this morning all of the new temporary poles are in place.

Jackson Hole was absolutely sick on Tuesday. See images above and below.
There’s a good chance that Sunday or Monday could be wildly good at Jackson Hole. I’m used to this kind of snow in Tahoe and it’s a good thing. It’s wet, nasty, sticky snow that will glob and to everything. All the upper mountain rocks will be slathered. Lines you’ve never thought of before will come into play.
It very well may be one of the most unique, amazing days in Jackson Hole history once they open up. We’re not going to recognize the upper mountain…
