Jackson Hole 888 storm, 1/31/12

We’re not sure if it shows the power of group prayer of if it’s just straightforward wish-fulfillment, but Jackson Hole went off last week, receiving 80 inches in eight days. Here’s some footage to brighten your day—or annoy you if your local hill is still looking for that first big storm of the year.  

If there's one good side to a drought winter (and, well, there really isn't), it's that the snow feels that much sweeter once it does arrive. And arrive it did recently in Jackson, in big buckets, with about seven feet falling in eight days, doubling the snow base. The official snow-counters in Jackson called it "one heck of a storm," and one of the biggest since 100 inches buried the mountain in 1976. All we can say is, it's about time. And we'll be fine if we don't have to type the words "drought winter" again all season.
