Full Release

Is there a better way to burn off the Thanksgiving calories than skiing in Jackson Hole?  We don’t think so, that is why the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will be opening for lift serviced skiing and snowboarding on Friday 11/24/17.  Black Friday sales can wait until you get your fill of 2,711 vertical feet of skiing on Teewinot, Apres Vous and the Teton Lift.  If that isn’t enough to get you out to Teton Village, then I suggest you continue reading for a complete list of what is scheduled to open this weekend.

The Aerial Tram will also be open for scenic rides on Friday and Saturday, November 24 & 25, 10am-2pm. Corbet’s Cabin will be open for waffles and warming.

With the addition of the Bridger Gondola, we will have over 2,700′ vertical feet of skiing Saturday.  In addition to these lifts, we will also be opening Cafe 6,311 and the General Store on Friday as well as Casper Restaraunt and Off-Piste on Saturday.

If you still need to get new gear or apparel for winter never fear.  Hoback Sports, Teton Village Sports and Jackson Hole Sports are having a BLACK FRIDAY SALE this Friday, and will be operating all week (except for Thanksgiving) for tunes, rentals and all your shopping needs.

Please note that the mountain operations team has been hard at work getting the resort set up for the season, but early season conditions exist.  Please use caution.
