Report From The Jackson Hole Blog:
As the weekend faded away in Jackson Hole and much of Northwest Wyoming yesterday, locals and visitors could all sense it. It was making its way across much of Idaho yesterday afternoon and over Teton Pass last night. It arrived this morning. Winter has shown its colors for the first time during the lead up to the 2018-19 season. Heavy winds, cooling temperatures, and a considerable amount of moisture convened for an early dose of winter weather in the Tetons Sunday evening, leaving our favorite peaks with its first white coat of the year. A few inches of snow piled up as yesterday’s front moved through overnight and the valley cooled. Local weather enthusiasts are anxiously watching as predictions for another pulse of the storm are showing potential snow totals of 4-8 inches in the mountains into Tuesday morning. These same meteorologists have placed the areas surrounding Rendezvous Mountain in our first Winter Weather Advisory of the season until early Tuesday. Take a peek for yourself and see what our tram operators and photographers found at the top of the Tram this morning.
