For those who are unaware of our amazing January promotion, the Golden Ticket is back and passholders from all over the world have been reaping the benefits. The Golden Ticket offers skiers/riders with a valid 16-17 season pass to any winter resort, 40% off lift tickets based on the valid in-resort, single day rate, between January 9th – 31st, 2017. Skiers can get this discount for as many days as they like during this time.
Long story short, this is YOUR chance to ski Jackson Hole with a DEEP discount that matches our snowpack – the 2nd DEEPest snowpack in 40 years to this date! Read below for a great story regarding a couple who ‘loaded up the wagon’ and came 26 hours by car to take advantage of the Golden Ticket!
Peter and Margaret Bowers began their journey west on January 6th in search of powder turns and a killer deal. As they loaded up their station wagon in Petoskey, Michigan and set out on their venture, Peter eyed the snow report in Jackson. They had heard through a friend at their home mountain of Nubs Nob about the season Jackson Hole was having and with word of the Golden Ticket promotion, the decision was easy. Some might call it luck or just instinct but before they knew it, Peter and Margaret were on their way to ‘pow-town’.
Flash forward to just after lunch time on Sunday, January 8th, as Peter and Margaret roll into Jackson Hole and they immediately can tell it’s game on. As they entered the valley, they are greeted with full-on whiteout conditions and after 1,645 miles, their special Aspens condo from Jackson Hole Resort Lodging was a sight for sore eyes. They had already purchased their Golden Tickets through the online estore, so now they just had to show their Nubs Nob season passes and they were ready to go.
They awoke the next morning to find 8 inches of Cowboy Pow knockin’ on the door. Peter and Margaret showed up to Jackson Hole, skied the Big One and saw over 40″ fall in the following 5 days. As Nubs Nob ski patrollers, their excitement to ski a deep base with powder a plenty was the icing on the cake of an overall excellent trip. They noted their favorite lifts were Thunder and Casper and also enjoyed an unforgettable meal at Piste Mountain Bistro during their stay. They visited the legendary Mangy Moose and we’re quick to appreciate why it’s always been mentioned among the top après-ski bars in the US. They also made a visit to Grand Targhee and even managed a night ski at Snow King Resort, something they said felt like a ski movie segment in ‘Ja-pow.’
As January 16th rolled around with sore legs but a full heart, Peter and Margaret once again loaded up their station wagon and began a much sunnier journey back to Michigan. A lifelong dream of riding Big Red and seeing the Tetons had been fulfilled and all was made possible by the Golden Ticket.
“Leaving Jackson Hole and driving back to Northern Michigan was both bitter & sweet for us. Bitter, knowing that our time had come to an end after enjoying nothing short of a spectacular ski resort, ski conditions and friendly folks. And sweet when we remind ourselves of the perks of having a season’s ski pass to our local ski resort.
Thank you Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for the Golden Ticket promotion. It was great fun to talk to others about our journey to Jackson Hole and the experience made possible by this great deal”.
-Peter and Margaret Bowers
