    Snowfall rates slowed down during the day, however the upper elevations still managed to receive a few more inches of light snow. Densities of the recent snow were measured below 6% this morning. Last nightís significant accumulation and todayís new snow brought the total snow received since the new year to 100 inches in the Tetons. This snowfall contained over eight inches of snow water equivalent. Southwest winds today averaged between fifteen and twenty-five miles per hour. Temperatures at 9000 feet stayed near ten degrees.

    this is some all time shit right here..the days are starting too blur together

    Nuking on the pass right now. Looks like another 6"+ of windblown and stacking. That'll feel like 10-20" easy.
    Another snowy, windy day in the Tetons. Snowloading is gonna get intense here shortly. Be smart out there beyond the ropes.

    Skiing is tittaaaayyyz fo sho right now. Even the daily locs are all impressed with this cycle. Snowing/blowing for days on end is the preferred pattern.

    My legs are thrashed, gonna take the day off.

    I bet all of our regional areas are skiing great right now. 'Ghee must be as good as it gets.

    KC looks great, thanks for the stokey, LBL. Sweet boot warmer, btw. What a li'l nugget...

    Things have been decent just a couple hours to the north but nothing even close to the all-time conditions you guys are seeing.

    It has been fun living vicariously through this and the Utah thread.

    I’m out of the pass loop. anyone been part of these "lively discussions" mentioned by Pistono in his jhavalanche observations?

    bulk of the skiers and riders on the pass today having lively discussions about recent avalanches and the need to identify the persons involved and particularly heated talk about the 2 skiers who decided to ride the avalanche terrain on glory bowl following the active slide cycle

    What site is that graphic from? I remember it from years ago but thought it was dead... Teton snow info or something?

    That's what I ended up doing. But I did try and check 33 before heading around.

    some numbers to quantify what my legs are feeling.

    Ten feet of snow has fallen at the Rendezvous Bowl Snow Study site at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort since January 1. That 14-day total exceeds any previous total for that specific time period since the present record keeping scheme began in 1975.
    wonder what it will be like when the "real" depth and snow quality we keep hearing the PNW is getting finally comes our way?

    This has been such a stupid deep week and a half at the ghee. Can only imagine conditions over the hill. Mad Props to my Honda snowblower this week, had some crazy drifting at the homestead last 2 days

    Wow! What a difference a day makes. Snow was so good all the way to the bottom we took 2 Hoback runs right off the bat. If you could deal, afternoon runs off the top were even better than the morning.

    With record setting snowfalls and more coming, we've extended our powder orgie a second time until the weekend even though supplies are getting low.

    Funny thing (no one got hurt) happened in the tram line today. With all the snow and wind, quite a roof cornice has built up. To the point where a 15 foot piece spontaneously let lose, falling onto the line directly beneath. Among the plastered were 2 family's with 4 kids going up for waffles. A brief snowball fight broke out.

    Does the airport operate in those types of conditions? I know Eagle and Aspen along with Hailey (Sun Valley) routinely get shut down when the snow flies.

    Just returned from a 1-day blast-through with the wife. We hit the Village on Monday, which was... good timing. No crowds, ridiculous snow. The only minor drawback were the HORRENDOUS conditions up in Rendezvous Bowl. I felt a little bad taking my wife out there in that shit, but she persevered and, to her credit, didn't kill me at the bottom.

    For Jackson, if the airline flies big planes, they tend to get in. If they fly a small plane, they usually have to turn around or go to Bozeman when itís stormy.
