Press Release From Jackson Hole Mountain Resort:
Author: Andrew Schrum
The majority of the country is getting ready for their May flowers, but in the high country of the Tetons, we’re getting ready for the… SUMMER TRAM SEASON! May 20th marks the day when Big Red starts flying again. All of your waffle cravings, snowball fights, and views from the top will be restored.
Following our deepest season on record, the snow has not stopped, and the bottom of Rendezvous Bowl is holding an epic snowpack base of 160″. 621″ is now our current snow total for the year and if the webcams are any indication there are still turns out there to be had!
This winter in Jackson Hole has been one to remember. Keywords that come to mind are: “Relentless”, “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”, “DEEPcember”, “Stormageddon”, and the list goes on. And even though the tram stopped running April 9 this year, old man winter did not! Over 2 feet of snow has fallen since Big Red stopped its winter program. 12″ fell overnight on Monday, and 21 more inches are predicted before the weekend.
We’re just 25 short days away from the tram re-opening for the “summer” season. So plan accordingly to take advantage of our earliest summer opening to date.
