Jackson Hole Mountain Resort:
# 1 Snow in the Rockies
Opened 4,139’, Top to Bottom Today.

(December 8, 2012 - Teton Village, WY) Jackson Hole Mountain Resort opened the Aerial Tram, Sublette and Thunder Chairlifts giving skiers and riders access to 4,139 vertical feet of terrain. 15 inches of light, dry, powder snow in the last twenty four hours added to the incredible early season snow totals of 126 inches.

“The conditions are fantastic! The snow from earlier this week and last created a created a great base and this most recent storm came in cold and windy making for the perfect cowboy powder that Jackson is famous for,” said JHMR President Jerry Blann.


In addition to the snow, it’s all about the complete experience at Jackson Hole. The new Casper Lift, which opened earlier this week, is delivering brand new intermediate terrain and groomed runs to guests. Also this year Jackson Hole received accolades honoring the “Hole” experience including #1 in Overall Satisfaction by Ski Magazine Readers Poll, #1 US Ski Resort by Forbes Magazine and right now #1 in snow in the Rockies!


Jackson Hole continues to famously deliver our legendary powder snow, 4,139 continuous vertical feet, 2500 acres of the best beginner, intermediate and expert skiing and snowboarding and a genuine “Last of the Old West” atmosphere. Three years of extensive investments in grooming, snowmaking, lifts and visitor services across the mountain have created an entirely new mountain experience for a broad variety of guests and we intend to continue to broaden this appeal. Neighboring the legacy National Parks of Yellowstone and Grand Teton and operating in Grand Teton National Forest there is no more spectacular setting for a destination resort in the world. Now with nine nonstop cities (and hundreds of connections) flying to the newly expanded airport, Jackson Hole is one of the most easily accessed destination resorts in the West.
