February 6, 2019 Alpine, Wyoming Snow Report Rockin’ M Ranch

February 6th, 2019
This last storm lasted about 5 days. The first two days were a rain snow mix in the valley and changed to snow in the valley half way through. On the fourth day we picked up about six inches in the valley and another 8-12″ yesterday. The snow had a very high moisture content, not slush, but heavy. The Bridger avalanche center is reporting areas in star valley receiving about 22″. Snow totals raise quickly with elevation. Twenty plus inches in the mountains over the last few days is probably conservative. Jackson hole resort is reporting 30″ new and a storm total for the week of 46″. I have not seen this much low to mid elevation snow in several years. With cool temps in the forecast, it will be one of the best weeks of the winter for riding!
