A storm rolled through the Tetons on the last weekend of February, blanketing Jackson Hole with more than a foot of pristine powder. The snow that dropped during the storm pushed Jackson Hole Mountain resort over the 300-inch mark for the season, making it one of the best destinations in North America to visit if you’re searching for powder and steep skiing. Needless to say, the conditions were excellent and the powder in Jackson Hole was perfect. With a solid base of 300-plus inches, the skiing in Jackson is only going to get better!
Saturday, February 23rd, was a powder day as Jackson’s season total crested the fabled 300-inch mark. Saturated grey clouds settled over the Tetons throughout the day, and Wyoming’s powder-hungry masses turned out in droves for the awesome day of storm skiing. Everyone was calling it “the deepest powder day of the year,” and the excitement level in the tram was palpable. Here’s a video from Saturday’s action in Jackson:
The snow kept falling all day and overnight on Saturday. Then, as if the weekend couldn’t get any better, the clouds broke as the sun rose on Sunday, February 24th. Blue skies sat overhead, deep snow was underfoot, and Jackson Hole showed everyone on-hand why it is one of the most popular ski resorts to visit in North America.

Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com managing the website and blog content, I couldn't be happier. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
