Jackson Hole 5th 500 inch season in a row

Jackson Hole has wrapped up a 5th 500 inch plus snow season in a row, with no closed days and only 2 delayed starts all season.

The great snow and terrain is nature’s gift, but the organisation and teamwork on show to achieve that is a huge credit to all involved.

The 2020/21 season wrapped up Sunday with 502 inches of total snowfall, marking five consecutive winters with over 500 inches of snow at the Resort.

February at Jackson Hole was record-setting, with 173 inches of snow in Rendezvous Bowl and 193 inches at the Raymer plot, making the month the third snowiest month on record in the Resort’s 55-year history.

That set up an awesome Kings & Queens of Corbet’s event.

Opening Thanksgiving Day 2020 with seven lifts and operating daily through April 11, 2021 allowed guests to enjoy the fully planned 137-day season.  

Many operational adjustments supported the success of the season and health and safety for all.

JHMR opened the lower mountain lifts at 8:30 a.m. sharp. Even during double-digit powder days, JHMR was able to open all lifts on time with only two days opening shortly after 9:15 a.m. for snow control. Additionally, new protocols at the Mountain Sports School and in all dining, retail, and rental facilities, as well as improved snowmaking and grooming enhanced the guest experience and provided the safest environment possible for the season.  

“I want to sincerely thank our loyal passholders and valued guests for complying with the health and safety protocols this winter. At times it was challenging, but it allowed us to have a successful winter and stay open. I want to especially acknowledge our staff, who did a tremendous job keeping the mountain safe and for going above and beyond to deliver a successful season. We are pleased to offer a special year-end bonus to all our staff for their incredible efforts managing through a challenging time. As we look ahead, we are optimistic for a return to normalcy next winter. We will remain nimble and keep our guests and passholders updated as we make plans for the coming season,” stated Mary Kate Buckley, JHMR President.

For Downunder JH fans hopefully travel there WILL be back on the menu – it has to be high on the all time must go there bucket list for everyone who ever dreamt they could ski or ride at a reasonable level.

But you don’t actually have to be good at all, their beginner and progression terrain and facilities stack up with most places too.
