WINTER SOLSTICE UPDATE - DECEMBER 21, 2018

The Teton Range - 12.21.18
Not an overabundance of snow in the Teton Range this Winter Solstice of 2018.  Since the Thanksgiving storm we have only had two modest snow events in the range.  There is about 46" of settled snow on the ground in Surprise Meadow at 9580' and just over 30" in the "One Hour Meadow" on 25 Short, at an elevation of about 8,000 feet.  Get the latest snow pack summary and current avalanche hazard in the Teton Range by visiting the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center website.  Happy Holidays to all!

WINTER UPDATE - NOVEMBER 29, 2018

Recent snowfall from a storm on Thanksgiving has provided snow coverage to the valley floor and boosted settled snow depths at the higher elevations.  Over a foot of settled snow lies on the valley floor and forty inches or so has accumulated at higher elevations.  For updated avalanche conditions please visit the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center.  

Winter has arrived at the Tetons - 11.29.18    

NEW WEATHER STATIONS IN THE PARK - NOVEMBER 2, 2018

Recent weather in the park is reminding us that winter is on the way.  The valley is primarily snow free, but a recent storm that has since melted away is beginning to build the winter snow pack up high.  We can say this with much higher confidence today thanks to our two brand new weather stations in the Surprise Lake area!  The Surprise Meadow station is indicating 14" of snow on the ground right now...The other station on Surprise Pinnacle is telling us that while raining in the valley, temperatures at 9,500' remain below freezing.  This information is part of an interagency effort to increase the data available to the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center for daily forecasts.  The Lower Saddle weather station will also remain in service this winter as long as Mother Nature allows it!  Links to these stations are available on the Homepage and we encourage you to use them throughout the winter season.

CONDITIONS UPDATE- OCTOBER 6, 2018

Over the previous few days 6"-18" of snow have fallen on the Tetons above 9000 ft.  With the fresh coat of snow and cold temperatures, early winter conditions will remain for the forecast-able future and probably carry into the actual beginning of winter.  All alpine areas will have some snow, ice, and verglas.
