We've had an amazing finish to the season here in Jackson. After a month-long dry spell, infrequent 2-4" inch "dumps", and an exodus of frustrated locals to warm, tropical locals mother nature finally delivered huge for us. The Village finished strong last weekend with closing weekend providing some seriously deep turns, but the best was saved for Targhee this week; with the lifts still spinning on that side of the Tetons the snow favored hill picked up a ridiculous amount of snow this week, enough so that they have extended their season another week until April 18th!
