Jackson Hole End of January Conditions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm planning a trip to JH for the last weekend of January and was wondering what the conditions were like at that time. How's the snow pack, how much of the mountain is still closed and how's the weather? I gotta prepare the wifey and the others who only like to ski in near perfect conditions. Thanks!

For example, two seasons ago, late January simply rocked. JH just opened up the top of their mountain with four feet of fresh and I arrived the next day ready for on piste freshie search and destroy.
Before that storm, I heard that the conditions were pretty sad.

Hard tellin' not knowing

January in Jackson can be real cold, just like Chicago. As said conditions can't be guaranteed. But the sliding is worth it. If the perfect conditions the spouse and kids want are springlike (mild and sunny), the only part of that you'll possibly get is the sunny (and cold).

You've probably already guessed from the previous responses that asking for weather predictions is kinda futile.

Jackson Hole in late January would *usually* be moderately cold with plenty of snow. It *could* however, be warm and sloppy. It *could* be colder than anything you've ever seen. It *could* mean some of the best powder skiing you could possibly imagine. Nobody knows ahead of time and anyone who claims to is lying.

Bottom line is that it's a great ski area and late January is one of the least-crowded times of the season to enjoy it. The best advice is to just go on your trip and make the best of whatever conditions you get.
