TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — It sure is a powder day, Jackson Hole!

Even with nearly half the mountain closed for avalanche danger, it looks like everyone is eager to get in a few turns.

And although lift lines are long, conditions seem to be worth the wait. Rendezvous Mountain received 18 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours, 9 of which came in after the lifts closed yesterday, Jan. 5.  Snow depths are now at an 85 inch base on the upper mountain and a 58 inch base at mid-mountain.

Today’s forecast is calling for heavy snowfall throughout the day.

At noon, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort closed the Aerial Tram along with its Sublette and Thunder lifts due to avalanche hazards and inclement weather.

Stay safe out there!
