Opening Day is Thursday with Almost 3,000 Vertical Feet of Skiing/Riding

With over 7 feet of snow falling this season and help from our snowmaking crew, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will open up with almost 3,000 vertical feet of skiing and riding. The Teewinot, Apres Vous, Casper and Marmot lifts will be opening up on Thanksgiving, offering up a great variety of terrain. We got out on the mountain to check things out yesterday morning and found some great skiing. Our ski patrol and mountain operations staff are out there working hard to finish up with getting the mountain ready to open.

Snowmaking is still going strong on the Apres Vous and Teewinot side of things, so we checked out what Marmot and Casper were looking like. Views from Lupine Way show the upper mountain looking gorgeous.

Upper Sundance was offering up some great coverage and corduroy.

Keep in mind that early season conditions do exist, and any rope lines or closed area signs put in place by patrol are there for good reason.

The trail edges are boasting some nice snow. Here’s a sample from Amphitheater:

We’re excited to be able to do laps on the Marmot lift on opening day. The corduroy on upper Gros Ventre was in great shape.

We will see you on the hill on opening day! Opening weekend events include a Free Community Ski Day on Friday (with live music, raffles, $1 food and drink specials throughout Teton Village and more). There is also the Town Square lighting on Friday night and the 2nd Annual Peep Show at the Four Seasons on Saturday.
