Winter is upon us at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) who are ready to open for their longest season of skiing and riding yet! Thanksgiving Day, 2019 will kick off 137 days of skiing and riding in the Tetons up until the resort’s closing day on Easter Sunday, April 12 2020.

JHMR President Mary Kate Buckley warmly welcomes guests for Jackson Hole’s 54th season, saying: 

"It's been a busy summer and fall packed full of operational enhancement projects
 all over the mountain. We're ready for a great winter ahead and look forward to
 putting JHMR's new improvements to work!" Buckley announces.

JHMR will open the Teewinot chair and the Sweetwater Gondola to Solitude mid-station and Après Vous lifts at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28 with additional lifts and terrain scheduled to open throughout the week as snow and weather conditions allow. According to the NOAA, a storm is rolling into JHMR for their opening weekend and is expected to bring up to a foot of fresh powder or more.
