The buzz around opening day at JHMR has filled the bars, offices, ski shops, and local dog walking trails around Jackson Hole. With only 10 days until the rope drops the rumors have started to fly. Will they open wall to wall? If not, what lifts will be open? How much snow is in the bowl? WHO WILL GET THE FIRST CHAIR?!
While we might not be able to answer those questions quite yet, we can assure you that opening day won’t disappoint. Snowmaking crews have exceeded their overtime hours working hard to get the mountain ready. Over 70 snow guns, blasting 5000 gallons of water per minute, have taken over the slopes of Apres Vous, Teton, Casper, Sweetwater, and Teewinot lifts making the north side of the mountain look like mid-winter. If you haven’t dusted off your skies and put a fresh coat of wax on the bases get into Teton Village Sports, JH Sports, or Hoback Sports before opening day, November 24th.
