Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is known to host some of the gnarliest inbound terrain in the continental U.S, and if you hit it just right you may be treated to some light cowboy pow. Luckily this December, it's been nearly impossible to hit the resort on any day that is not a powder day.

JHMR is having their deepest December (#deepember) in 40 years, having received 120" in just 20 days so far this month (That's 10 feet!!). Jackson local Kate Elkind has been out enjoying the mountain and told Newschoolers, "This past December has been pretty incredible. There's nothing like skiing every day in snow so deep you frost bite the tip of your nose so you look like Rudolph just in time for Christmas. Also, fuck tourists."
And it's not just falling in the Tetons, judging by the content going up these days, everywhere is getting their healthy dose, including British Columbia, the Pacific Northwest, Utah, and Colorado.
