Closing Weekend Report, Winter ’22/23
An absolutely unforgettable winter is sliding to a finish at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort [JHMR] in the marvelous Teton Mountains of Wyoming.
The resort concludes winter operations Sunday, April 9th, so mighty JHMR is rolling out the good times for two more epic days, toasting a season of new benchmarks in outstanding events, blower pow-days, and oh-yeah, a RECORD-SETTING SNOW YEAR!
Nearly 600 inches of classic Teton powder snow fell over Jackson Hole, a depth never before seen in Rendezvous Bowl.
Straight from ‘go’ you just knew this season at JHMR was bound to be a goodie.
Playful, persistent storm cycles breezed in like clockwork, and the snow numbers kept stacking up on Jackson Hole’s famously skiable kingdom. JHMR sprawls 2,500 rip-able inbounds acres across Rendezvous and Après Vous mountains; it spikes to nearly 11,000 ft of elevation and offers up to over 4,000 vert feet of all-time terrain.
Over winter ’22/23 headline events such as the annual Kings & Queens of Corbet’s, for example, benefited by what one patrolman called “the best conditions seen in a while, or maybe ever.”
With such a strong and sustained winter on their gloved hands, the celebrated record snowfall almost felt inevitable.
Coming into its season finale, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort notched Five-Hundred-Ninety-Four marvelous inches over One-Hundred-Thirty-Six days of glorious skiing and snowboarding.
On this closing weekend, expect conditions consistent with the time of the season; chilly in the morning with dryer, workable snow at higher elevations, and firmly formed surface layers down low.
Temps will rise rapidly, so if the breeze remains moderate and clouds keep their distance, presto; it’s a gold star day of spring fling shredding at one of the most iconic destinations for snowsport on Planet Earth, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Surprising (and awesome) is the quiet feel of the past couple of days coming into this closing weekend. With credit definitely due to the resort destination’s thoughtful system of advanced ticket reservations, it’s like your own private JHMR out here.
That room to breathe, plus ample snow for the carving, has got pretty much everybody smiling wider than their goggle tan.
To tie the bow on this wonderful winter, JHMR invites everyone to a stellar two days of foot-stompin’ live music highlighted by the beauty of a sunrise Easter Service.
Then, on May 20th, the resort’s iconic aerial tram, good ol’ Big Red, spins again for summer fun.
It’s been one for the record books at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and this closing weekend promises to be the perfect send-off.
