MEMORIAL DAY MAY 28, 2012


Teewinot from Jenny Lake Ranger Station - 5/28/12
                                            
By this Memorial Day morning the Teton Range has received 1-3 feet of new snow above 9000 feet.  Over the last four days, snow has fallen with SW to NW winds in the 20’s to 40’s (mph).  This weather has created potentially hazardous winter conditions including a significant threat of new snow dry slab avalanches.  Over the next couple of weeks as the weather clears and temperatures warm, the wet loose avalanche activity will increase significantly.  Please contact the Jenny Lake Ranger Station at 307-739-3343 for the most current conditions.
