JACKSON HOLE, Wyoming – Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) will be fully open for summer operations beginning on Saturday, June 15, despite the catastrophic failure and road closure along Highway 22’s Teton Pass.

JHMR released a statement to their twitter and full press release to their website discussing the closure, noting that three other roads that access the resort are still open. Jackson Hole Airport and Highway 191 from the North, South, and East continue to provide access. After spending three days assessing the impacts of the closure on employees and guests, the resort has decided not to delay the start of summer operations.

We are grateful to the representatives from WYDOT, Teton County, and the Town of Jackson for their swift response to the incident on Saturday, and we have been in constant communication with local and state officials as we gather more information about the road closure on Teton Pass. Our Jackson Hole community is incredibly resilient, and it’s times like these that we know our community will come together and support one another and visiting guests. Three of the four roads into Jackson, Grand Teton National Park, the Town of Jackson and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort are open, and our local businesses are ready for the season to begin. We would love to see you this summer.” – JHMR President Mary Kate Buckley
