Anyone know how Jackson is skiing these days?

Have the recent snows improved things? or is it more like dust on crust on top and mush below?

Curious, thanx.

Well, I just got off the hill about 20 minutes ago. The recent snows have improved things a buncharola.

It is mushy down low but the top 3/4 of the mountain is skiing great.

Did you see this thread?

Those photos were taken two days ago.

Also, there's a chance of more snow in the forecast. It does have the dreaded "r" word in the forecast, but hopefully only in the valley and only during the day:

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

IT APPEARS THAT A CHANGE TO A WETTER WEATHER PATTERN IS ON TRACK FOR
THE WESTERN WYOMING MOUNTAINS. THIS WILL BEGIN SUNDAY AND WILL LAST
THROUGH WEDNESDAY. IT WILL LIKELY BE WARM ENOUGH IN THE FAR WEST
VALLEYS THAT A MIXTURE OF RAIN AND SNOW WILL FALL. IT WILL ALSO BE
QUITE WINDY OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS WITH LOCALLY WINDY AREAS IN
THE VALLEYS. EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE...THE MAIN WEATHER
HAZARD WILL BE STRONG WINDS SUNDAY AND MONDAY. THE GREEN MOUNTAINS
AND RATTLESNAKE RANGE WILL HAVE THE STRONGEST WIND WHILE NATRONA
AND SWEETWATER COUNTIES CAN EXPECT WINDY WEATHER EARLY NEXT WEEK.

Looks like things are going to finish pretty strong. I'll be up for a long closing weekend.

Do you know what the drop into Corbett's is looking like this year?
