Despite a record-breaking snow season, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, WY, closed as scheduled on Sunday, April, 9th, as resorts across the west take advantage of the epic snow by announcing season extensions. However, next year’s season will be extended by seven days, reports the Jackson Hole News & Guide.
The closing date of April 14th will make the 2023/24 season the longest in the resort’s history, 143 days, spokesperson Eric Seymour said. The extension follows negotiations with the Bridger-Teton National Forest Service over the resort’s permit.
“It is painful to have to close the resort while the skiing and riding is still fantastic, so we’ve just made the decision to extend the 2023-24 season by an extra week to give our guests 143 days of fun and adventure at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.”
– President Mary Kate Buckley
