With another night of snow, the powder was really deep. Today, I was skiing with some friends and got to make some first tracks in bottomless powder in the Moran Woods at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR).

The snow was waist deep or deeper in spots. We had some lift lines early, but they were gone by late morning, and we skied on the lifts all afternoon finding the best skiing of the year.

Check out the shot of me in Moran Woods. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

Another Powder Day in Jackson Hole

Firsthand Snow Report from Spring Creek’s Derek Goodson

Got a late start today, but headed to Teton Village to pick up a few runs.

With all the new snow overnight, snow depths just keep getting bigger.

Despite a weekend day, I was still able get thigh deep untracked Jackson Hole powder in the late afternoon. You just need to know where to go.

Skiing was unbelievable. The snow was in your face all afternoon.

New Snow in Jackson Hole

New Snow for Spring Creek’s Derek Goodson

After several days of seemingly constant snow, I went to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for a couple hours of skiing this afternoon. What a difference a couple feet of snow make at Teton Village.

Skiing was awesome. The crowds were nonexistent – I was skiing on to the lift every time. I was getting fresh tracks for over an hour.

Spring Creek’s Derek Goodson Describes Skiing in Jackson Hole

Skiing in Jackson Hole is either sunshine or powder, or both.

Today, we saw a beautiful sunny day with great groomers, and as seen by the empty chairs, no crowds.

The view from the top of Sublette chair at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort looking south over Jackson Hole just never gets tiring.

Spring Creek Ranch can be seen atop of the East Gros Ventre Butte between the Town of Jackson and the Teton Mountain Range.

Looking to the north behind the Tram is the National Elk Refuge and Grand Teton National Park, and two more reasons to be in Jackson Hole in the winter.
