Powder time: Jackson Hole opens more lifts

by James Wilkinson

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has revealed it will open the Aerial Tram, Sublette and Marmot lifts and the Bridger Gondola this Saturday (Dec 3).

The legendary resort has received a steady stream of snowfall, with 117 inches of snow already recorded this season and more forecasted throughout the week and into next.

With these new lift openings, guests will be able to access 4,139 vertical feet of terrain, including Rendezvous Bowl, Cheyenne Bowl, Gros Ventre and Tram Line as well as a collection of prime beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain.

Five other lifts are currently operating: Teewinot, Après Vous, Sweetwater Gondola, Casper and Teton. Guests can stay up to date on terrain and lift openings using JHMR’s app, JH Insider.

“We are elated to open the Aerial Tram and upper mountain on December 3. The snowfall we have received thus far this season is providing some of the best early-season conditions we have seen in decades,” said Jackson Hole Mountain Resort President, Mary Kate Buckley.

“I hope everyone is excited as the Aerial Tram, Sublette and Bridger Gondola open up access to our world-class terrain.”
