Jackson Hole trip 2011

Next winter I'm planning a trip to JH, been wanting to go there for a very long time and finally gonna do it! I'm flexible on when I can go and want to get it with the best possible pow conditions. plan on flying into SLC and a friend there will pick me and drive to JH, ride there and Targhee a couple days each and head back for some UT pow at Snowbird and maybe Canyons. anyhow what's the best time to get the goods? I'm thinking of mid Jan to mid Feb skipping any holiday weekends to avoid crowds. gonna try my best to do the last minute booking to get on the storm track!

We went the first week of February this year, and the snow was great. The long range forecast has WY getting bombed this winter, so any time after December should be solid. I'm planning on going again January, most likely later in the month. Don't wait too long or else it'll be rough finding a hotel. You should be cool finding some good bargains in December. Enjoy your trip. Jackson's the best.

Just remember later you go more filled in everything is. Since JH is a steep resort, it takes more snow to fill everything in.

The amount of snow JH gets, that's not much of a worry unless you go early season

Jackson

Jackson Rocks. Take a day trip to Grand Targhee if you can. It's like having your own private resort. Been to JH twice and had ungodly powder days each time along with some bluebird days. One day we had "27" inches. INSANE. Make sure you know what you are doing. JH is to be taken seriously. I'm planning my trip for this year as we speak.
