Snow Piling Up In Tetons

snowdrift

Waves of winter weather continue to pass through the region, dropping copious amounts of snow in the high country and measurable amounts in the valley.  The Natural Resource Conservation Service is reporting 118% of average precipitation in the Snake River Basin and 119% of normal in the Yellowstone Basin.  The reporting station on Togwotee Pass is showing 116% of normal there while the overall Wind River basin remains slightly below the 30-year average.   Snow-water equivalents in these deposits are slightly higher than the precipitation amounts themselves.  Meanwhile, the area’s ski resorts are posting some of the deepest snow in the Rocky Mountain region with 164 inches having been received at the summit of Grand Targhee and 169 inches at the top of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.  Snow King Mountain is set to open for the season Saturday.
