Jackson Hole opened more terrain this past weekend, including Sublette and Thunder Lifts.
“Let the stoke meter rise! On Saturday (12/5/20), Sublette and Thunder will open adding to the current lift roster and allowing over 3,600 vertical feet of skiing and riding. Conditions on the mountain are exceeding normal for only being one week into the season thanks to nearly 10 feet of snowfall season to date.”
JHMR has counted 117″ of snow so far this season, and is in prime condition for a solid year. The resort averages 459″ annually, according to JHMR.
It’s good to see somebody in North America is having a relatively normal season so far. The Northeast, Utah, and Colorado have seen less-than-normal snowfall to date.
Hopefully the snow gods start to help us all out a little bit. We need it!
However, it may still be a little sharky out there, so use caution if you’re heading up to JHMR:
“With Sublette and Thunder opening don’t forget that early season conditions still exist. Under that open field of untracked snow are still a few sharks (stumps and rocks for those now familiar with the vernacular) lurking. Ski hard but ski with caution. It will take a couple more feet of snow to fill in all of the gaps and cover the hidden hazards.”
