(Jackson, Wyo.) - Saturday, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) celebrated their 50th season by opening up new terrain, rocking out to live music and ending the day with a huge fireworks show. The day began with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. for the new Teton Lift, which allows access to the Crags for the first time ever. Speeches were followed by live music and then JHMR owner Connie Kemmerer cut the ribbon. https://www.instagram.com/p/_ewhY5wv-z/ Mountain owners Connie Kemmerer and Jay Kemmerer took the very first chair.
