Winter is in full swing. Ice is starting to form in the usual places; people have been climbing some known haunts throughout the range, but it will still be a while until some of the longer alpine ice routes are in. Though valley snow depths are still a little thin, you should expect deeper snow at elevations above 7,000 feet. For further information about travelling in avalanche prone terrain throughout the Teton Range, please consult the local avalanche forecast at:  http://jhavalanche.org/
BE ADVISED that this forecast does not cover elevations above 10.400 feet.
Should you decide to venture out into the snowy peaks of the Tetons this winter, please take the time to reflect on how difficult it would be to rescue yourself or someone else if things don't work out in your favor. Research your trip thoroughly, go prepared for the worst, and have a safe trip!
