Report from February 10, 2021
The wind has been absolutely howling here in the Tetons the past 3 days.
The wind has remarkably been steadily blowing at 30+mph on the high ridges for over 72-hours now.
That wind really changed the snow transforming it into a firm, punchy, funky, tricky animal that can hook a ski at any moment.
I did find one 4-turn patch of good pow down low and it warranted a little hoot.
The forecast looks good right now with a monster storm rolling in for the big Presidents Day Weekend.
I didn’t see any avalanches nor signs of instability yesterday.
Be safe out there.
