The event originally was begun to help fight cabin fever in Jackson Hole in the late 1800’s, but now serves as a fundraiser for the local eye-care program supported by the Jackson Hole Lion’s Club.

    As high pressure strengthens, warmer air from southwestern portions of the nation will move into the region today.  Conditions will also stay mainly dry throughout much of the state, but winds will be strong and gusty.  Parts of I-25 (Colorado state line to Casper) and I-80 (Cheyenne to Rawlins) could see gusting as high as […]
