A major change to the weather pattern occurred this weekend as a Pacific storm system arrived on Sunday along with a strong cold front.

Snow totals generally ranged from one to four inches above 8,000 feet in the Tetons, Gros Ventre, Salt River/Wyoming Ranges and Northern Wind River Range with some higher amounts in isolated areas.

A social media post from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort depicted a small dusting from this morning looking at Corbet’s and the top of Rendezvous Mountain.
