Fairgrounds activities reconfigured for snowmelt

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Jackson Public Works will begin to spread what town officials referred to as the “ginormous” snow storage pile on the fairground beginning next week. The effort is being made to hopefully encourage melting so the year’s first rodeo (May 27) will go off without problems.

The snow spreading will require a relocation of the recycling bins to the eastern portion of the fairgrounds property, south of the tennis courts. It will also mean the dog park will be taken down. It is unknown at this time whether the dog park will reopen again this spring.

The snow pile, affectionately known to some as ‘Heck of a Hill,” is estimated by the Public Works Department to be 55 feet tall and 250 feet wide, containing approximately 75,000 cubic yards of snow. The goal is to use heavy earth moving equipment to spread the snow pile throughout the parking area. By increasing surface area the snow will melt quicker.
