Hello all - we've been experiencing some "cooler & wetter than usual" weather for the season this week - for those of you attending the August 30th program, an extra fleece or jacket layer might be a worthwhile addition to your pack! Check out the ten-day forecast here, but take it with a grain of salt - our mountain weather is very unpredictable!

We'll have a great time rain or shine, cool or hot!

James Hamilton Aug 19, 2014 at 05:27 PM

A friend and I will be coming out for the Aug 30 - Sept 6 trip. We will be extending our trip for a week in Yellowstone afterward. Will we have to worry much about rain? I understand that the weather begins to cool down very quickly in September.
Emily Meier Aug 19, 2014 at 06:21 PM

Hi James - great question. The weather here can be unpredictable at any time of year, but the general trend of September is that highs remain in the low-70s during the day. We can start to get frosts at night, but the days will often warm up by 9 or 10 a.m. - the most strategic way to pack is in layers to accommodate for a variety of temps - rain gear is essential this time of year. If you're interested, we have a local meteorologist who specializes in weather for Jackson Hole - his website is what locals use for the forecast:

Hi everyone. Thanks for all the wardrobe tips. I've got my plastic ponchos and hiking poles packed. I look forward to my first RS and Yellowstone adventure. (Get to check off my bucket list!) Woo Hoo!

Weather here has been superb. Sometimes light afternoon shower. Pack essentials of hat, sunscreen,lip balm, insect repellent, and a couple of those $1 ponchos. According to itinerary, you are going to have adventures of a lifetime

Are the bugs all that bad? I hate using chemicals on my skin.

My wife and I are on the 8/20 trip. Coming from Massachusetts. We've done a number of Road Scholar trips and enjoined them all. See all of you next week and let's hope for sunny skies.
