TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — On Saturday morning, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) reported that they had received a whopping 27 inches of snow in 24 hours, with storm totals from Thursday to Sunday totaling four feet of fresh powder.

However, big snow totals made for a delayed resort opening Saturday, as JHMR ski patrol conducted avalanche mitigation to make sure the mountain was safe to open. The upper mountain didn’t fully open until just before 11 a.m. on Saturday, which made for sizable liftlines as skiers and riders had nowhere else to go.

Even a furry friend was spotted in the storm at the top of Corbets Cabin.

Skiers and snowboarders had to exercise patience during this weekend’s storm, and even found ways to entertain themselves with some good ole’ belly sledding.
