I am hoping some of you can help me with my some information about Jackson Hole. Booking a trip for late December ahead of time is a gamble, as you all know. Looking at all the wisdom and statistics available on the internet I gather that Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole are a pretty good bet regarding their chance of having snow and a lot of open terrain around Christmas. It seems that in years past most all of both mountains are open by mid December. Do any of you know how the potential lift and terrain openings are shaping up right now? Is there enough snow on the ground already to open up the whole mountain by Dec. 20th or so if it snows even just a little between now and then? Or is it going to take several feet of snow to get the hill opened up? I know snowfall cannot be predicted, but I am hoping some of you Jackson Bears can give me some information. The website gives no clues away, other than to say that the tram will run on Dec. 20. It seems that if the tram runs, then most of the mountain would be open. Please help me out so I can decide whether or not to book this trip. If I could travel on a day or two notice later in January or February, I would wait and do it then. But with my son still in school, late December is when I have the most days available for a trip. I will post photos and a TR whenever I do make this trip. Thanks ahead of time.
