March 6, 2023

2022-2023 ski season has been one for the ages! If you haven't skied in Jackson Hole yet this season, then you're missing out. It's been exceptionally cold and snowy!  


According to official calculations, February is the fourth straight month during which Jackson Hole has seen above-average snowfall. There have been lots of winter storms across the Tetons, and temperatures have stayed lower than normal. 

March started with a bang! A storm hit February 26, which lasted until March 1. While the Town of Jackson only say 5 inches of accumulation, up to 33 inches of snow fell in some parts of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort! 

The last ten days of February brought massive snowfall. Buckrail reported that "Jackson Hole’s Rendezvous Bowl Plot ended up with 97 inches of snow for the month of February, which is above the long-term average of 73 inches." Rendezvous Bowl Plot has recorded above-average snowfall every month since November. It reached a seasonal total of 447 inches on February 28th. 

The Town of Jackson is also above its seasonal average, with 17.6 inches during February alone and a season total of 85 inches. Overall, snowpack is at 107% of average following the latest storm cycle. 


March is expected to follow the recent trend. Meteorologists predict that the month will be colder than average, with temperatures predicted to hover in the 20s and 30s rather than the 40s like normal. Snow storms are also expected to hit early in the month, bringing even more snow accumulation.
