TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) recently released updates pertaining to the winter 2021/2022 season in a letter penned by Mary Kate Buckley, JHMR president.

The letter, posted on the JHMR website, yesterday Aug. 19, outlined the current protocols and left the door open to changes due to COVID-19. “We are prepared to modify our operations as required by any forthcoming health orders,” stated the letter.

The resort plans to operate all lifts at full loading capacity, including the Tram. Last season, the Tram operated at a limited capacity of 25 people per cabin, compared to the 100 people maximum load.

Daily capacity will be limited again this season as well.

Both Ikon Pass and Mountain Collective pass holders will need to make advanced reservations.

Pass holders will again have the opportunity to receive a full refund.

“With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and variants, JHMR is offering passholders the opportunity to receive a full refund, less an administrative fee, on their 2021-22 JHMR season pass purchase up to November 15, 2021,” Buckley wrote.

Health orders have yet to be seen in Teton County, yet the COVID-19 risk level was recently increased to “red” or high. The metrics were recently updated to align with the CDC. The letter did not mention any policy plans for mask wearing for guests or employees.

JHMR plans to operate from Nov. 25, 2021, through April 10, 2022.
