A major winter storm that has pounded Jackson Hole since Sunday has already dropped 33 inches of snow, Transworld Snowboarding reports. The immediate forecast calls for even more snowfall.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort isn't slated to open until November 27, but already some mountain staff are saying it's the most snowfall they've seen in October in the past 30 years.  The National Weather Service is reportedly saying that some of the strongest La NiƱa conditions since 1955 are currently building in the Pacific. While long-range forecasts are difficult to predict, above-average snowfall is predicted this winter for the Tetons.

See you on the slopes!
