If you are headed to Jackson this winter season…or any season for that matter, there is a bakery that is a must visit in town. I remember my first Persephone encounter, which was merely a jaunt past the opened doors that stopped me in my tracks.

The quaint, rustic and elegant design caught my attention, but as my eyes fixed on the middle of the room I would have guessed my walk had lead me down the streets of France.   Showcased within a lush boulangerie display were breads, croissants, rolls, muffins and scones, pillowing on top of each other.

We’ve been having a blast getting back on snow today, with a lot of fun skiing to be found off of Teewinot, Apres Vous, Marmot and Casper. With Free Ski Day (including live music, food/drink deals, raffle and more) tomorrow and fun events like the Peep Show on Saturday, things are just kicking off in Jackson Hole. Tune in for some photos from Day One!

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.

Mother Nature has been kind to the upper elevations of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort so far, gracing us with 87″ already this season. Our snowmaking team has been hard at work as well, loading up the lower elevations and picking up where Mother Nature has left off. Working around the clock in sub-freezing temperatures is no easy job, and a lot goes into getting the mountain into prime skiing shape in the early season. It’s thanks to these guys that we will be skiing and riding almost 3,000 vertical feet on opening day (on Thanksgiving). Take a look behind the scenes of the Jackson Hole Snowmaking team:

With snow totals over 55″ on the season, winter has been ramping up like crazy around Jackson Hole. We went up the tram for a look and were expecting it to look like winter, but the huge drifts were way beyond our expectations. The winter stoke is high right now, to say the least!

Take a look at the deepness by scrolling through these photos:
