In 1949, Wyoming Plunged Into An Arctic Freeze That Will Make This Year’s Winter Look Downright Mild

We’re no strangers to winter here in Wyoming – it often snows and blows so much we feel like we’re in a snowglobe. But one winter truly stands out from the rest – have your parents or grandparents ever recounted memories from the brutal winter of 1949?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
