Teton Pass Ski Area Will Not Open This Season

Teton Pass Ski Area announced they will not be open for the 2017/2018 ski season via their website and then followed up with this statement on their Facebook page:

“Unfortunately the ski run will not be opening this ski season. The three owners have been willingly subsidising the operations of the hill since 2010, so the local community had a ski run they could use, and we were proud to do this for the local community. This year it’s just not possible.

One of the owners has lost their home in the wild fires in California, and another a business in Florida in the recent hurricane. We are just not able to support the hill this year.

It is a significant amount of money required to operate, and it’s just beyond our ability this year. We are so proud of Charles and his hard working crew for all the work they have put in over the years, and the professional manner in which they operated the hill, and the countless hours they put in to make it happen for you all. We are so sorry.”

The ski area was purchased by New Zealand native Nick Wood back in 2010 after it had sat idle for two seasons. He refurbished the lodge, improved the chairlift and added runs. The news of the closure comes as a surprise after Teton Pass had a successful past season with above average number of skiers, snow and revenue.  The closure is expected to have negative effect on the local economy.
