Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole
Flew in to JAC in WY yesterday after being redirected to SLC (had to change my pants after the crazy landing).
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort got a few inches before we arrived and there was light snow falling, but we ventured out to Grand Targhee on the supposition that they got more snowfall (which they normally do), and because no trails off of the JHMR tram were open.
Grand Targhee was 100% open today. 3 of their 4 lifts were closed yesterday due to high wind (up to 120 mph gusts! The wind even tore one of their trial signs out of the ground). The snow at GT was pretty good. Light powder and packed powder. Their season total is low (like most everywhere), so you could see a few rocks jutting out in a few places, but GT is has large expanses so there was plenty of room with snow to avoid any exposed rocks.
The Sacajawea side of the mountain had the best riding, least amount of wind, fewer people and best visibility. I didn't bring my camera, so no photos to share today.
Going to JHMR tomorrow. The rumor was that they are supposed to open up the top trails on Saturday.... but it was RAINING in Jackson as we got back from GT. Forecast says that the rain is supposed to turn into snow overnight, but that sounds like a forecast for some icy snow with a light cover.
Guess we'll find out tomorrow.
