Tetons Memorial Day

It looks like I'll be in the neighborhood memorial day weekend. Any recommendations for a one day climb? 5.6ish or snow climb...

For a moderate snow climb, maybe the East face of Buck? I did it last July and wished it had more snow. The view toward the Grand is pretty awesome.

Yes, Buck's East Face is a good idea. Maybe E. Face Teewinot, much bigger and a little trickier, but in your suggested range. South side of Symmetry, like the SW Ridge, would be another. Cube Point's East Ridge, also. It's a very iffy time for both weather and conditions, quite changeable, so be prepared to alter plans and go for what the situation allows.

Will likely have a lot of snow in the couloir for the approach to the SW Ridge so you could get both birds with one stone.
