Spring Skiing Local’s Tip
Spring skiing in the Tetons is all about timing. Even on powder days, it’s important to understand what the weather is going to do and what aspects you are going to be skiing/riding. Here are some general rules of thumb:
- On powder days, make sure that you get out there early. As temperatures warm, the snow will start to get heavier. If you have a later start, favor the terrain that faces North towards Grand Teton.
- On drier days, give the day time to soften up the snow before you head off trail. Southern and eastern aspects get sun sooner, so head to that terrain first. Usually, this happens around 11-12.
