Winter has had a bit of slow start in the west, but it’s finally here. Following our best October snow-wise in 16 years, we entered into warmer weather like much of the west. But Jackson Hole is back in the flow and we’ve received six inches of new snow in the past 48 hours with, more importantly, colder temperatures. Lows in the single digits have created optimal conditions for snowmaking. Our crews will continue to make snow in anticipation of a Thanksgiving opening day. It will be limited terrain on opening day, with the anticipation of more terrain opening in the near future.
In addition to the snowmaking going on here in Teton Village, it looks like we’re set to receive more snow starting Sunday night. Predictions for the next storm show somewhere between 6-10 inches, from Sunday to Tuesday afternoon with most of the snow falling on Monday.
Everyone do their snow dance or whatever your ritual may be for the next big storm. Here’s to the 2016-17 winter season!
