A dramatic weekend of big snowfall in the Tetons produced over 30 additional inches of snow accross the region! As a result, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has announced plans for one of the biggest and earliest openings in the history of the mountain. Starting this Saturday, November 26, Jackson Hole will be offering over 3000 vertical feet of skiing by opening the Bridger Gondola, Thunder Chairlift, the New Marmot Lift and Casper, Après Vous and Teewinot. All skill levels are welcome as beginner through expert skiers will find plenty of skiing from opening day.

Additionally, over 74 inches, or 6.25 feet of snow has fallen so far this year at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. This amount has placed Jackson Hole with most snow of any major resort in the Rockies. In much the way that last year’s record breaking snow begun, la Niña is producing generous snowfall and favorable forecasts for Jackson, and the forecast for the coming week could spell a lot more snow before opening day on Saturday. So polish off those skis and get to the slopes because this calls for one of the best openings in history.
