Opening tracks: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort kicks-off a huge winter season

by James Wilkinson

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is opening five lifts this week for its opening day (Nov 25), kicking off what’s expected to be a fantastic winter season.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort President, Mary Kate Buckley, said this fall, the Resort has seen the perfect combination of early-season snowfall, consistently cold temperatures and continuous snowmaking efforts, which have created great coverage across the Resort.

She said Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will open a wide variety of terrain on opening day, all located on the north side of the Resort, connected by five lifts: Teewinot, Après Vous, Sweetwater, Casper and Teton.

With these five lifts, guests will have the opportunity to access a collection of beginner and intermediate terrain, Buckley said, adding Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has reported 82 inches of snow to kick off the winter season.

In further good news for skiiers and boarders, she said the Resort is hopeful to announce additional terrain openings for the weekend of December 3-4.

“We’re excited to open up for skiers and riders on Nov. 25 after a tremendous past few weeks of snowfall and cold temperatures,” Buckley said.

“This is some of the best early-season snow we’ve seen in the last decade. It’s been the perfect combination of snow and snow-making since late October, which leads to great coverage on our world-class terrain.”
