Spring is in the Tetons!
Welcome to our first official Teton Backcountry newsletter! To get future announcements and updates like this straight to your inbox, sign up for our email updates.
After a historic amount of snow (193″) fell during the month of February, making it the third snowiest month ever recorded at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the month of March proved to be the very opposite as sunny days became the norm and valley temps reached into the upper 40’s (and even 50’s!) on a daily basis. The switch to spring in Jackson Hole has certainly been a swift one this year!
*Friendly reminder that TBR will be closed from April 15 – May 15*
Although the snowshoe season is dwindling down with the melting of valley snow, this also means that bears in Grand Teton NP and Yellowstone NP are waking up from their winter slumbers to begin spring foraging! Make sure to reserve your bear spray rentals at TBR so you are well-equipped for backcountry travel; bears can be more aggressive during the spring as they are refueling their diets after months of hibernation.
