Chris Wallner | | Industry NewsIndustry News

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has received 137″ of snowfall so far this season and 30″ over the course of opening weekend, which has allowed them to schedule the opening of Marmot, Bridger Gondola, Sublette, and Thunder this weekend! The snowfall has been plentiful as of late, but it isn’t done yet, the resort is forecasted to receive anywhere from 1-3 FEET of snow over the weekend!

“We are forecasted to receive one to three feet in the mountains this weekend with a very favorable westerly flow. Our plan is to get as much terrain and lifts open in as timely and safe a manner as possible. If snow and working conditions allow, we hope to try to open the Aerial Tram by the end of the weekend,” stated Tim Mason, VP Operations.
