JACKSON — Bad news for travelers but good news for skiers: A significant winter storm is headed into western Wyoming this weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the western Wyoming high country from Kemmerer north through Yellowstone.
Forecasters say the storm won’t be so bad down low but heavy snow will fall in the mountains. The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports that could present problems for people trying to get across Teton Pass west of Jackson.
Meteorologist Dave Lipson with the Weather Service says Teton Pass could get 2 feet or more of snow.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is playing up the snowy forecast in a press release that says it’s a good time to book a ski vacation.
