(Teton Village, Wyo.) - Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will kick off its 50th anniversary season tomorrow with 62 total inches of snow so far this year, not including the pending winter storm
expected for tomorrow.
Opening day is followed by Flashback Friday, when lift tickets will be $6
-- the original price for skiing at JHMR when the resort first opened in
1965. There will also be $6 rentals and waxes at JH Sports, Teton Village
Sports and Hoback Sports, plus free ski and snowboard lessons (one hour
clinics available, sign up at the base that day for a time). There will be
live music at the base of the gondola and $6 food and drink specials from
Teton Village restaurants such as Nick Wilson's, the Mangy Moose, the
Handle Bar and the Spur will be going all day long.
Costumes from all the decades are encouraged, and will make for a fun
throwback vibe. Terrain and lift openings will be dependent upon snow
"We're excited to start the season by giving back to our community a day of
fun and six dollar skiing. We're especially pleased that all ticket
proceeds from the day will be donated to four local non-profits," said Adam
Sutner, JHMR Chief Marketing Officer.
Those four charities are Honoring Our Veterans
of Pathways , Teton County Search &
Rescue , and Teton Clean Energy Coalition
