Snowy Range Ski Area got 12” of fresh snow last week. Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort also got a few fresh rounds of snow for some great downhill skiing. Hogadon will greatly appreciate the snow headed our way this weekend.

For cross-country skiers, the backcountry of the Medicine Bow Mountains is doing just fine after a rather lethargic beginning. To our south, Colorado has a mixed bag of skiing conditions, but that should be et right this weekend.

Snowmobilers will love the conditions in The Snowy Range. All will need to be aware of weather conditions and dress appropriately.
