Yeah, I know the PNW is getting the all the snow-but in the intermountain area-who's doing well??

Just wondering if old reliable Targhee was getting good conditions??

How's it skiing and what are they expecting from this storm?

That might be true but with only 70" of coverage it's not been that great so far this year. BUT...they are currently getting hit with a pretty good storm so things are definately looking up. The crazy thing is it looks like the JH side of the pass is getting hit harder than the Targhee side which is totally weird.

Don't go! It's bad!:

74" settled at 9200', 48" settled at the parking lot, 179" to date, 9" from when the lifts closed last night to 5 am this morning.

Stay away. We're in a drought!

Look Out!

The forecast for Eastern Idaho, including the west side of the Tetons (a.k.a, Targhee). Straight from the NWS.....

A PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM WILL SPREAD HEAVY SNOW ACROSS THE EASTERN HIGHLANDS...MAINLY ABOVE 6000 FEET. SNOW IS EXPECTED TO PICK UP IN INTENSITY AND COVERAGE THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE NIGHT. THE SNOW WILL TAPER OFF LATE FRIDAY MORNING...BUT STRONG WINDS FRIDAY MORNING WILL RESULT IN BLOWING AND DRIFTING AT HIGHER ELEVATIONS. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 6 INCHES ABOVE 6000 FEET TO AROUND 12 INCHES ABOVE 7500 FEET. THE FAVORED AREAS WILL BE THE WEST FACING SLOPES.

You've been warned!

Now boys, play nice!

Snowbasin is finally catching up as well. Noname waiting for the first track last monday. We have had about 12" since then.

Well, yeah,

We reported 1", but the Snotel (or as we like to call it the "No Tell" ) site was frozen. So, it was the best 1" we've had in a long time. FYI - it was anywhere from 9-16" of blown in snow.

Today was great with 4-6" of really good snow.
