Mountain Resort to beef up snowmaking capabilities this spring

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Mother Nature surely blessed Jackson Hole Mountain Resort this past winter with a ‘ridonculous’ amount of natural snow. But just in case she ever gets fickle, and to get an earlier jump on things, JHMR will begin construction of a new snowmaking pipeline on Monday, April 17.

The new pipeline will connect to the Shooting Star well and increase capacity to the current snowmaking system by approximately 35 percent.

“Our snowmaking will benefit greatly from the added capacity this pipeline will offer,” JHMR VP of operations, Tim Mason, stated in a release.  “The added capacity into our on-mountain pump house will allow the snowmaking system to operate more efficiently and with greater volume, which will support our operations immensely.”

The construction is expected to take approximately two months. Road detours will result while trenching occurs across Teton Village roadways. The first road detour will occur sometime around the week of April 24 at the intersection of Teton Village Road and McCollister Drive. The second detour will take place at the Village Parking lot entrance, in about mid-May. A third detour will occur at the intersection of Teton Village Road and Apres Vous Road. This detour is expected to be in effect the third week of May.

Stay updated on the latest detours and construction information.
