I’m heading out from the warm, rainy east coast to Jackson Hole next week – 2/11 through 2/18. I’ve been keeping an eye on the weather and snow report for the past few weeks. It looks like late January’s dumps will put the mountain in pretty good shape for 2/11-2/18 regardless of what the weather for the next 2 weeks brings.
I know there are a bunch of Jackson regulars out there…what will the conditions be like on 2/11, given the forecast from now until 2/11 looks fairly dry? I assume there is still plenty of white stuff to go around and coverage is reasonable, considering the mountain has been 100% open for since the January dumps.
On a related note, my quiver of two consists of a Watea 114 (west) and a Watea 84 (east). I’m leaning towards leaving the 84s at home and just bringing the fatty 114s, but am a little concerned with how a dry 10-14 days will impact the snow conditions on the hill. Any thoughts on that from recent Jackson skiers?
