A low pressure system that moved through Wyoming Monday brought some strange weather, including strong winds statewide and snow in the upper elevations in the Tetons.

Gusts nearing 70 miles per hour were recorded in the Jackson area, and windy conditions fueled wildfires in Natrona and Sweetwater Counties.

Dave Lipson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Riverton, says this kind of weather is more typical of September or October.

The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has been ranked as the number one overall resort in North America by SKI Magazine. 

The SKI survey results are widely anticipated.  The highest ranking the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort had received before this year was sixth in 2012, the first time that the resort had cracked the top ten.  The SKI survey ranks resorts in 20 different categories and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort President Jerry Blann said they are overwhelmed with the news.
