Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will open the complete mountain, wall-to-wall, top-to-bottom, in November for the first time in history. Opening Day is scheduled for this Saturday, the 27th of November.
Never before in the recorded history of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) has so much snow fallen so early, with recorded snowfall to date tipping the 126” or over 10 feet mark and a snowpack of over 5 feet. As one of the biggest storms to hit the resort continues to rage in Teton Village, JHMR is preparing to open all major lifts* including the Aerial Tram and the Gondola. This will be accompanied by the opening of all major runs* including the Hobacks and Lower Faces.
Jerry Blann, JHMR President adds “La Nina winters are normally very good to Jackson Hole in terms of snow. We anticipate being able to open the entire mountain in November—this has never happened before.”
*While it is certain that there will be enough snow to open the entire mountain, the intensity of the current storm has created challenges for mountain operations that may affect what terrain can be opened. Opening day operations will also be subject to weather and snow safety.
