Trick or Treat? Mother Nature is offering up nothing but treats for Halloween, with storm totals now approaching two feet and powder turns being found in the Jackson Hole backcountry. We got out for a few turns this morning to celebrate Halloween and all of the new snow. We are fired up on skiing powder and tried to keep the Halloween spirit alive by incorporating a pumpkin costume. Why not?
Scroll through the photos and get fired up for winter with us!
It’s not even Halloween yet and Jackson Hole is already looking like winter. We were greeted with another coating of white this morning with over 4″ falling at the Rendezvous Bowl plot, on top of the 10″ reported yesterday. Check out the photos from yesterday morning as we enjoyed the new snow and the Jackson Hole Ski Patrol began getting ready for another great ski season. And in case you were wondering…it’s still snowing!
We are starting to receive our hardgoods orders and as we un-package these shiny new skis, all of us start thinking about our best turns from last year. Mark my words, it is going to be a big year!
JHMR athlete Hadley Hammer is a top-level competitive freeskier and will be competing on the Freeride World Tour this season.

Check in with Hadley as she offers up a couple of go-to exercises to get your ski training off on the right foot:
The early winter continues in Jackson Hole with more snow falling over the last few days. The past 3 nights have seen snow accumulate on the upper mountain, with the total 3-day count at 8″. Even with all of the snow up high, fall is hanging on down in the valley, although winter is starting to win the battle. Here’s a view of Rendezvous Bowl and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, with frosty fall foliage in the foreground:
Mother nature has been keeping us guessing over the past week in Jackson Hole. We’ve seen two consecutive nights of snow at the higher elevations, with the valley floor getting a full coat of white last night as well. The contrast between fall colors at the lower elevations and a coating of white up high has us scratching our heads and also enjoying the beauty.
The count in the Rendezvous Bowl plot at 10,000 feet today was 4″ of new snow, on top of the 3″ reported yesterday.
The commute to work has been incredible. Here’s a look west towards Jackson Hole Mountain Resort while crossing the Gros Ventre River.
