I was having a look through the resort web cams today and from Sunshine to Whistler the weather ranged from overcast to socked in. Feeling like I needed some sunshine for inspiration I looked south to Jackson Hole and found the bluebird skies at last. The post header is from one of their webcams. Spectacular! – and they’re expecting more of the same until the weekend.
I was also very envious to see that their total snowfall so far this season is over 300cms, best in the west according to the graph shown below. Well Fernie is reporting 301cms to date and Revelstoke is reporting 353cms. I’d say we’re doing quite well in the great white north!
Jackson Hole is one of the resorts that I’m dying to get to. Bucket List!! My buddy and I tried a few years back and in typical guy fashion waited until the last minute to book accommodations. Turned out we picked the President’s Day weekend so we were completely out of luck. My Brother In Law also gave it a try a couple years back and he was also denied because there was so much snow they closed the highway. Ah, the elusive Jackson Hole.
Why the big attraction? I believe it’s the incredible snow and challenging terrain. Here are couple of my favourite pics from their recent photos gallery. Yeah… the snow looks pretty good.
