South Hoback, Jackson Hole (NWS Riverton)

CASPER, Wyo. — It should be a good weekend for outdoor recreation as 8-12 inches of snow has fallen over the past 48 hours in the western Wyoming mountains, with higher amounts in the peaks. Those looking to hit the slopes or backcountry can check the National Weather Service’s snowfall recreation page for webcams and recent snowfall totals.

Light snow showers will continue through Saturday, ending by late afternoon before another “reinforcing shot” arrives in the evening, this time bringing light snow coverage to the Bighorns and northern Bighorn Basin, as well Sublette, Sweetwater, and Lincoln counties overnight.
