Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Hosts First Annual Eco Night

(January 9, 2014), Teton Village, WY – Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) is happy to announce the first ever Eco Night in Teton Village Thursday, January 16, 2014.  The evening’s festivities include an après at Nick Wilson’s, a free movie screening of Chasing Ice and a great raffle supporting our local environmental non-profits.

“This will be a fun evening for all, with the goal to create a unified spirit of awareness and to showcase our community’s commitment to preserving our natural environment,” stated JHMR Communications Manager, Anna Cole.  The events will start at Nick Wilson’s Cowboy Café at 4pm with a selection of $3 Snake River beers for happy hour.  All profits from the beer sales will be donated to Hole Food Rescue, a local non-profit started by a Nick Wilson’s employee.  Doors to Walk Festival Hall open at 5:30 pm and an unprecedented number of local non-profits will be on hand with information prior to the movie screening of Chasing Ice.  JHMR extends a special thank you to Vertical Harvest, Teton Valley Recycling, Energy Conservation Works, Jackson Hole Eco Fair, Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Recycle Old Material (ROM), Energy Smart Home Energy Audits, Beyond Green radio show, Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition, and Hole Food Rescue for participating.  There will be a raffle hosted in Walk Festival Hall with all proceeds going to the participating non-profits. The free screening of Chasing Ice will start at 6:30 pm.  The award winning 2012 documentary by environmental photographer James Balog and his Extreme Ice Survey beautifully capture time-lapse images depicting the drastic erosion and disappearance of enormous, ancient glaciers. 

“This documentary demonstrates the changes that are happening in our climate. At JHMR we want to mitigate our contribution to climate change and continue to remain a community and industry leader in environmental initiatives,” Cole stated.
