Snow in the Forecast!
It looks like finally today the inversion is going to be stirred up for the next few days with pretty good snowfall chances clear into Saturday.  The interesting image above taken this morning was most likely the warmer moister air above trying to work its way down into the valley.  As of 11:30 while the sky had clouded over, the valley had cleared out with temps climbing through -10ºC/14ºF with little breeze.

Today’ grooming was a Pisten Bully skate pass of almost every trail.  Both classic tracks and skate lanes should work nicely today.  Apologies to the lateness of the grooming report, somehow the official mouse exploded in the cabin today, delaying publication.

Groomer’s choice for today is Outward Bound.

  • Morel Mushroom Foraging in the Tetons
    Let’s make lemonade out of lemons.. the lemonade being morel mushrooms and the lemons being the lingering cold temperatures (snow, sleet, and hail). What comes with so much needed precipitation are morels! Morel mushrooms are fungi that grow in the filtered light of forests. These oddly shaped mushrooms graze the valley floor and make for a fun activity for the whole family. Walking through the woods or floating the Snake River with a keen eye… Read More
