Among those lifts was the new Marmot double chair carrying skiers and snowboarders 1200 vertical feet from South Pass Traverse, below the existing Thunder Lift, to the top of the Gondola. Meanwhile, Grand Targhee Ski Resort in Alta also opened over the weekend with service on the Shoshone lift and Papoose Conveyor serving the Kids Fun Zone.  Both ski areas boast the highest snowfall among all the ski resorts in the Rocky Mountain region.
