Notorious for never calling a snow day, Teton County School District made the call at 7 a.m. Tuesday. And so did the rest of the Teton region.

As the Wyoming Department of Transportation closed Teton Pass, and pretty much the rest of the state’s byways, the town of Jackson rescheduled its public meetings for next Monday. The Senior Center and many child care programs closed for the day just about the time ski lifts started spinning uphill above a foot of fresh snow.
