Jackson Hole, WY, Jan. 11--It has been snowing like crazy at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Almost four feet in just three days, and almost seven feet so far in the new year.

Today, skiers woke up to 15 inches of new snow, making for huge powder stashes throughout the mountain's 2,500 acres. Thanks to a base of 72 inches at the summit and mid-mountain, all of Jackson's terrain, including the infamous Steeps and Courbet's Couloir.

Here's the break down of Jackson's monster snow streak:

  • January 5: 15 inches
  • January 8: 4 inches
  • January 9: 18 inches
  • January 10: 13 inches
  • January 11: 15 inches

    The forecast is for snow, snow, and more snow--thanks to the "Pineapple Express." This weather phenomenon occurs when a large band of subtropical moisture comes from Hawaii inland over the Pacific coast and then interacts with a trough, or large area of low pressure. Typically, this results in a series of snowstorms that then track East across the Rockies. Forecasters expect the Pineapple Express to make several more stops through Jackson this week.

    For the last three winters, Jackson Hole has had record snowfalls of more than 500 inches. This time last year, the resort reported 209 inches and ended the season at a total of 572 inches. "It looks like its going to be another great season for snow here" said Jerry Blann, Jackson Hole's president.
