I may have the opportunity in the next few months to take a job in the Jackson Hole, WY area (an actual career job opportunity) and was looking to get some feedback on what life is like in the area, including the climbing and climbing community. Where I currently live there are 0 alpine objectives and there are long drives to reach any decent sport or ice climbs, making it difficult to even make a weekend out of it. I spent the majority of my vacation time last year traveling west or to places like RRG in order to climb and it'd be great to be somewhere I could be in easy reach of all styles of climbing through various seasons.
For those who know, what do the seasons look like in Wyoming (length/months of each)? Is it easy to find climbing partners? And apart from climbing, do you enjoy life in WY?

The Pass is more likely to get closed occasionally by avalanches or weather, but that happens to the Canyon, too, just not as often. You don't have to go all the way to Driggs for housing... Victor would do. Both choices have lousy rush hour traffic, just a fact of life these days in Teton County. Edge to the Pass, slightly less time in the car.
