Ski Season Was Big

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reports a record-setting 2018/2019 winter season.  The resort’s 715,100 skier visits mark the highest in resort history, surpassing the previous record set last year. The success of the season is attributed to many factors including: Jackson Hole’s snow conditions, increased air service, JHMR’s strong guest service initiatives and increased skier days from passholders and the Ikon Pass. The 2018/2019 season finished with 505 inches of total snowfall, above average at all elevations with a record setting February snowfall of 193 inches in Rendezvous Bowl. The base area snow depths were at record levels from late February through the end of March. Looking ahead to next winter, the Mountain Resort will partner with Teton County Board of County Commissioners and Teton Village Association to invest in both short- and long-term solutions to improve transit, parking and mountain operations. Additionally, JHMR will construct the Eagle’s Rest fixed grip quad chairlift this summer with the new lift scheduled to open in November of 2019, providing new access to advanced-beginner terrain, rounding out the experience at Solitude Station learning area. JHMR will also invest in extending the snowmaking system on the mountain.
