As if the Tetons didn’t already have enough snow, another Winter Storm will arrive this evening with up to 2 feet forecasted for the higher elevations.
We know what you’re thinking, “THOSE LUCKY BASTARDS…” And you’re right– they are very lucky. As of this morning, JHMR has already seen roughly 92″ this season alone and this storm could push them over the 100″ mark really quick. That puts them at over 200% of their normal snowpack for this time of year.
Forecasted Snow Totals:
- Jackson Hole —26″
- Grand Targhee — 25″
- Teton Pass — 22″
LET IT SNOW!
