By now any of you reading this post are probably well aware of how much snow Jackson Hole has been getting this year, especially in the month of February. Living near Boise, Idaho gives me the advantage of being able to drive to Jackson - and it is also helpful to have a gracious aunt who lives 10 minutes from the resort and let's us come and crash anytime we want.
The storms were continuing into early March.
With that in mind, we made hasty plans, arranged the work schedule, reloaded the J-Card and headed out. We arrived Sunday evening, and skied Monday/Tuesday, March 3rd and 4th.
This storm was a bit warm, so the snow at the base was fairly heavy but by the time we got a few hundred feet up the mountain it was in great condition. I'd say the top 2/3 of the mountain was excellent and the bottom was a bit like mashed potatoes. So, no "blower pow", but very nice soft snow and better powder higher up. The video shows that on Tuesday morning I even had some very soft, untracked powder all the way down the Hobacks, (I was on the 2nd tram that "normal" people can board).
Here is the video TR. Enjoy...
