Essential Information for the 2020/21 JHMR Ski Season

TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — With winter approaching in the Tetons, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) announces a return to ticketing product sales for the 2020-2021 winter season. Effective Oct. 5, 2020, advance purchase lift tickets, Season Passes, and Mountain Sports School inventory will become available at 10 a.m. Mountain Time.

The move to open sales follows a Sept.9, 2020 pause on Season Pass sales in an effort to keep safety at the forefront of Resort operations by establishing measures to reduce crowding and allow for physical distancing across all aspects of JHMR’s operations. Locals, visitors, and JHMR loyalists looking to ski and ride this winter are strongly encouraged to plan according to JHMR’s online sales processes pertaining to the advance purchasing of day tickets, Season Passes, Mountain Sports School products, and rentals.

Day Tickets and Advance Purchasing

Starting at 10 a.m. on Oct. 5, 2020, guests can review pricing, check availability, and purchase day or afternoon tickets online at To accommodate our guests, we have also adjusted the afternoon ticket start time to 12 p.m. with same- day afternoon tickets on sale at 11 a.m. Guests are incentivized to purchase online before their visit with a 10% discount on purchases made outside 14 days or more and a 5% discount for purchases made within 7-14 days. Purchasing in advance also allows for pre-arrival ticket fulfillment, mailing, and lodge delivery with the added convenience of direct-to-lift access. If capacity limits are met for a specific day, tickets will no longer be available for purchase.

Season Passes and Pricing

On Oct. 5, a select number of Season Passes will be available for sale online. The following Grand and Grand ByPass Season Passes will be offered: Adult, Senior, College, Teen and Youth. The Rendezvous Peak Pass, 10-Day, and 7-Day products will no longer be offered. More details on pass products, conditions and pricing can be found on Guests who have already purchased any Season Pass Product from JHMR to date will have full mountain access without limitations per the terms under which their pass was purchased. To reiterate, if you purchased a Rendezvous Peak, Grand, 7-Day, or 10-Day Season Pass or ByPass product, reservations are not required. To provide more flexibility for passholders, the refund date has been extended to Nov. 16. Season Pass products also include a START Bus pass for the winter. Passes sold through participating JH AIR merchants will still be available and are not subject to a reservation.

Mountain Sports School

On Oct. 5, 2020, all private and class lessons including youth and adult programs, backcountry guiding, and adult ski and snowboard camp products will be available to reserve online in advance at Season programs for youth and adults will be available to purchase starting on Oct.ober 12, 2020. This winter JHMR’s Mountain Sports School is prioritizing guest health and safety with new programs that offer a more individualized experience with smaller class sizes and protocols to provide a safe learning environment. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance for all Mountain Sports School products and programs. With smaller lesson groups this season, reservations should be made as far in advance as possible online at As a reminder, Mountain Sports School products do not include lift access. We strongly recommend guests purchase lift tickets in advance of reserving their lesson to ensure same- day lift access is available.

Ski and Snowboard Rentals

This winter, JHMR has added more ways for guests to conveniently rent or demo equipment with health and safety at the forefront. Offering rental locations across three stores, two hotels, and through personal delivery, JHMR has a ski and snowboard rental option to fit every guest’s needs. To streamline the pick-up process, guests can purchase online in advance — and receive a 20% discount — or pick up equipment any time after 3 p.m. the day before use. It is strongly recommended that guests purchase lift tickets in advance of renting their equipment to ensure same- day lift access is available.
