JHMR opens 50th season tomorrow, flashes back to $6 lift tickets Friday

(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 conditions. "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 , Friends of Pathways , Teton County Search & Rescue , and Teton Clean Energy Coalition . *Feature Photo: h/t @JacksonHole on Instagram ( )* #buckrail #news
