Jackson Hole is renowned for its winter season and the great skiing and snowboarding that we have. And the old adage that we get 8 months of great skiing and 4 months of bad skiing is on the mark so far this winter.
A run of storms this week has covered the Tetons from summit to valley. Since last night we received 14 inches and 8 more are forecasted today. This storm will take total snowfall over 4 feet and it’s not even Mid-November. The valley has over 2 feet and the mountains are going to have incredible early season coverage.
Temperatures have made snow-making a snap and with the increased capacity at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the outlook for a very good opening on November 27th, 2014 is on track. Right now it is snowing so hard you can barely see the tram from 50 yards away.
Local meteorologist and Mountain Expert Jim Woodmancy stated, “due to the frequent weather systems that come across the Northwestern United States, carrying lots of Pacific moisture, which then combines with the cooler, drier air of the northern Rockies meteorologically speaking, we are ideally situated for receiving really good quality, light density, powder— what the locals refer to as “cold smoke” and this storm is delivering exactly that.”
