Jackson Hole: Go or no go?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Seeing as theres absolutely no snow in Big Sky at the moment im thinking next week of taking a trip over to Jackson Hole and see whats up over there. My question is this: how is the snow over there? Im looking to go to ski steep stuff (alta chutes, corbets, etc.) Is there enough snow to make it worth the trip? Any info you JH guys have would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Corbet's - closed (it's been open one day this year)
Tower 3 - closed
Alta 1 & 2 - open but should be closed
Expert Chutes - open with some good skiing but VERY rocky in most of the "normal" slots

Our "steep stuff" just doesn't have enough cover to make it good.  That said, the rest of the mountain (which is only a few degrees flatter than the steep stuff)  is still skiing extremely well given how little snow we've had this winter.

I don't know if this tells you anything or not, but I'm still having fun skiing every day.

 I think that Alta 1 is closed and has been for a while.  My wife and I went there last weekend and the signs were turned.  The crux is very bony but I think it could still be done cleanly on the left side of the choke rock.  Alta 2 might also be closed.  Didn't notice the signs as we went on the other side of the large buttress.  Still lots of fun skiing as Bob said.

Tower 3 is closed? It was open last week. A bit iffy in the narrow part but the snow below it was some of the best on the mt (not suffering from freeze-thaw). Mushroom chutes skied ok as well. Bigger problem was that if it did not warm up most of the hill was bullet-proof.
