Welcome Snows Get Underway in Wyoming

JH_snow_sept 30

With October just starting, the last word many of us want to hear at this point is “snow.” But, one place that wants it, got some on Monday.

Jackson Hole, Wyo., home to one of America’s largest ski resorts, received about two inches of snow on Monday. It’s only the second snow of the season, but it’ll help as the ski resort to start building its snow pack base in advance of opening day. The much anticipated opening of the slopes is less than two months away.

Jackson Hole gets an average of around 400 inches of snow every year. And at this point in the fall, Wyoming snow resorts usually start seeing their first flakes of the season.

Other ski resorts getting snow overnight Monday, included Steamboat Springs, Colo. and Arapahoe Basin, both of which tend to open their doors for skiers and boarders well before Thanksgiving — usually in October.

Want some more good news, skiers? The area could get another little bit of snow on Wednesday night, and the models are indicating some more and potentially bigger snows could be on the horizon next week. Although, much remains to be seen since some model divergence exists. Stay tuned, winter is just around the corner!
