Travel and Weather

The weather in March can be very varied. Some years we have had very warm days, in the 40s with slushy snow. Other years it has been snowy and in the 20s. The good news is that the -30° nights are over for the winter. The roads around Jackson are usually clear and mostly dry, but watch for small patches of black ice, especially in shady spots in the morning before the temperatures warm up. We may have fresh snow fall. While the roads to Jackson are usually good in March, the roads can get bad if a storm system moves through. To check travel information on the internet, here is a link to the Wyoming Travel Information page. To jump straight to a map, here is that link: Wyoming Road Report map. You can view a text report of Closures and Advisories here. Check the weather before you leave or give us a call while you are on the road and we will let you know what the conditions are.

Clothing

The nights in March still drop down to zero and below, so bring a warm coat, hat and gloves. If you plan on playing in the snow (skiing, snowboarding, sledding, etc.) bring extra hat and gloves because you will usually get wet. For skiing and snowboarding on Saturday, plan on dressing in layers. Cotton clothing is bad for outdoors in the winter. Synthetics and wool are good choices. It is usually cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon, so you can remove some layers to keep from overheating. The cold here is very different from the cold many other places (like Oklahoma). There is seldom any wind, the humidity is always low, and when the sun is shining, it can be very comfortable even in the 20s.
