SNAPPED: Snow stacked up from last weeks storm

JACKSON, Wyo. — Last week’s storm cycle dropped a ton of snow on the Jackson Hole Valley. Snow totals in the Tetons between Jan. 4 and Jan.8 above 8,000 feet ranged from 38-60 inches.

JHMR’s Raymer Plot recorded 60 inches, 26.3 inches fell in Moose, 23 inches was recorded at Togwotee Pass, and Grand Targhee’s Chief Josep Bowl got 38 inches.

Buckrail’s photographer, Nick Sulzer documented the snowfall in Grand Teton National Park. Snow buried cars and equipment near Colter Bay.


According to Buckrail Meteorologist Alan Smith, high pressure will strengthen heading into the weekend with strengthening inversions and colder valley temperatures expected. Skies should be mostly sunny on Friday and Saturday.

Smith expects the dry pattern to persist into the early part of next week. By roughly Jan. 19-20, high pressure should finally start to break down with meaningful snow chances returning to Northwest Wyoming.
