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:
The view of Apres Vous from the snow gun, dangling in the sky beneath the helicopter. (No, we did not strap an intern to the snow gun. This is a frame grab from a GoPro we had mounted to the snow gun.)
Check out the video to see the action in motion, and come on out to the mountain and enjoy the fruits of the Snowmaking team’s labor!
