This landslide has been mentioned briefly in a thread in Trip Reports, but I was just sent a link to a time-lapse video made of the slide itself. The landslide is taking place in the Snake River Canyon, about 30 miles south of town. It has covered Highway 89, which is the main route to Jackson from the south for tourists and commuters. The highway has been closed since May 15 and people wanting to use that route are having to do an approximately 1-hour detour to go up and over Teton Pass to get to Jackson.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation is working around the clock to try to remove the debris and stabilize the slope. The slide material is actually dropping down into the Snake River and creating a huge new wave on the river. Our biggest summer whitewater season (and tourist season) is supposed to start in a few days, so they're trying to reopen the highway asap.

Here's an aerial photo that was published in our weekly paper last Wednesday:
Nature is pretty amazing.
