Ski season has arrived in Teton Village.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort opens at 8:30 Thanksgiving morning, with the Teewinot and Apres Vous lifts, the Sweetwater Gondola (to the top), and the Solitude surface lift running.
“The conditions are good between the man-made and natural snow that we had over the last few weeks,” Communications Director Anna Cole said Wednesday.
By Saturday, the resort intends to have the Teton and Casper lifts open as well. All that stacks up to an exciting opening weekend for a unique season.
“This season will be very different and unlike anything we’ve experienced,” Cole said.
Among the changes are a multilayer face mask requirement for lift lines and indoor spaces, as well as reduced capacities for restaurants and other retail locations. Another change is a cap on day tickets, which can and will lead to the resort selling out of day tickets at times.
