TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. —Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) will open on schedule for skiers and riders this Thursday, Nov. 25.

As JHMR’s chairs begin to spin in Teton Village this week, JHMR President Mary Kate Buckley noted that weather conditions and snowmaking operations will determine which lifts and terrain will be open throughout the week.

“Mother Nature has been off to a slow start on the lower mountain, but with increased snowmaking capacity and a dedicated staff working around the clock, we are thrilled to open our lifts this Thursday,” said Buckley.

“We are opening limited terrain and as conditions allow, we plan to run all lifts at full capacity while limiting daily capacity in an effort to make an even more memorable guest experience.”

On Thursday, Nov. 25, at 9 a.m., JHMR will open the Teewinot Chairlift, Sweetwater Gondola to the mid-station, Après Vous Lift and the Solitude covered surface lift. Early conditions exist; riders and skiers are asked to watch for unmarked obstacles.

Sightseeing opportunities will also open on the mountain. The JHMR Aerial Tram will run for sightseeing and waffles service at Corbet’s Cabin from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 26 through Sunday, Nov. 28. No ski equipment is allowed, and masks are required in the Aerial Tram and inside buildings.

TVA will be offering free parking on Nov. 25, and 26, and regular paid parking will begin Nov. 27 for the remainder of the season. Winter parking details and rates can be found here.
