It’s late October in Jackson Hole and Tom M. was itching to explore the new snow above 9,000 ft. Tom and his partner Julie had the pleasure of first tracks on 20 inches of new snow at Wind River Lake near Togwotee Pass at 9,600 ft. elevation. Good thing they brought their bear spray because they came upon clear bear tracks in the snow.
Temp: 10 degrees Fahrenheit
Snow conditions: 20″ October powder at the top of the pass
