Well folks, it may not feel like winter down in the valley, but up in the peaks of the Teton Range, there’s no arguing that the snow has arrived. Since October 29, snow has been falling consistently, with 22 inches of snow blanketing the upper reaches of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Here are some pictures taken at the top yesterday morning:
There’s a lot more snow in the forecast, which is good because there’s some serious fun to be had at the end of the month. Oh you hadn’t heard? No worries, here’s the 411, the info, the knowledge:
November 26th: Opening Day of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s 50th Anniversary Season. The snow up top will be fresh and untouched, waiting for your first Instagrams of the season.
November 27th: FLASHBACK FRIDAY. Lift tickets will be $6, the original ticket price when JHMR opened in 1965. Costumes from all the decades are encouraged, and will make for a fun throwback vibe. That’s not all, there will be $6 rentals and waxes at JH Sports, Teton Village Sports and Hoback Sports, plus free ski and snowboard lessons (one hour clinics available, sign up at the base that day for a time). All of the lift ticket proceeds will go to four local non-profits that exemplify the core values of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. What will you do when you’re done shredding in your sweet throwback threads?? Live music at the base of the gondola and $6 food and drink specials from Teton Village restaurants such as Nick Wilson’s, the Mangy Moose, The Handle Bar and the Spur will be going all day long. WHAT. A. DAY. IT. WILL. BE.
For all of the snow lovers out there- Check out this snowman I made at the base terminal of the new Teton Lift. The high-speed quad lift is looking really slick and now has a 6″ snowman named “Nelson” keeping it company until the official opening on December 19th. With that, I’ll leave you to your #JHDreaming and this cool video (with helicopters!!) about how the Teton Lift was constructed.
