It’s been a near record breaking winter for snowfall here in Jackson Hole! Here are some season highlights brought to you by our friends at JHMR:
It’s still early in the season, but the Headwall and other legendary runs are already opening up at JHMR! Here are a few shots of what skiers have been up to out here so far…
The vast majority of breeding birds have left Jackson Hole in search of warmer climates, but several birds including this Steller’s Jay will remain throughout the Winter. This image taken this morning shows the vibrant blue coloration of this jay’s wing and tail feathers and (simply by good luck) has a six-sided snow crystal which recently landed on this bird.
This lightweight brand of snowflake has landed in abundance during the past week, accumulating to over three feet of snow in the mountains and allowing Jackson Hole Mountain Resort to open all of its ski lifts this weekend.
