Jackson Hole Eclipses 100 Inches Of Snow In The Month Of February

It's going down at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Wyoming.

Yesterday, the ski resort reported receiving over 100 inches of snow this month.

And you know what that means? Untapped turns down Casper Bowl.

JHMR had a challenging start to the 2023-2024 ski season. When I visited the resort in December, the tram wasn't yet open, and shrubbery dotted the mountain thanks to the minimal snowfall.

In the Snake Headwaters watershed—where JHMR is located—most of November and December 2023 saw a lower than median snow water equivalent, according to the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

However, this month is bringing snowier tidings to JHMR. Last week, four feet of snow fell at the resort, and, as of yesterday, the Snake Headwaters' snow water equivalent hit 90% of the median—one of the highest points it's reached this winter.

The fresh snow created "go fast, jump off anything" conditions, with local professional skier Owen Leeper hucking serious meat near JHMR. Earlier this week, Leeper shared a clip of himself jumping over 100 feet off a cliff into a bottomless landing.

It's an extreme reaction to a storm cycle. But for us mere mortals, if Leeper is skydiving on skis, the getting elsewhere on more mellow terrain is undoubtedly good.
