Endless Pow Days at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, WY

Spend less time in lift lines and more time on the slopes at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. With a successful 2022 – 2023 season under their belt, Jackson Hole is looking forward to welcoming skiers and snowboarders once again to experience the wonderful Wyoming powder.

Record-Setting Snowfall

What could be better than light, fluffy snow that seems to never end? Last season, Jackson Hole experienced its snowiest winter ever, reporting 41 days with six inches or more of new snow. Intermediate and expert skiers will delight in knowing that Rendezvous Bowl also experienced a record-setting 595 inches of total snowfall. This half a mile wide and about 800 vertical feet slope is steep and has no cat tracks, so first-timers beware. Other slopes and runs experienced excellent conditions thanks to the constant snowfall, cold temperatures, and overall quality of snow. Even on non-record-setting years, Jackson Hole has plenty of pow to go around. 

Increased Slope Time

If you are tired of long lift lines and packed slopes, Jackson Hole has got you covered. Last year, resort guests enjoyed not only record snow but greater access to the mountain with reduced lift and wait times and advanced ticket sales. Opening the season with five lifts helped this effort, thanks to early-season snowfall, continuous snowmaking efforts, and cool temps, which will hopefully continue into the 2023-24 season.

The new Thunder lift, in addition to the Aerial Tram, Sublette lift, Marmot lift, and the Bridger Gondola, allows guests to enjoy 4,139 vertical feet of terrain, including Rendezvous Bowl, Cheyenne Bowl, Gros Ventre, and Tram Line. Thunder lift’s opening noticeably shortened the wait times, by less than half of the previous year, giving guests more time on the snow.    

No need to worry about slamming into a fellow slope shredder. The somewhat newly implemented reservation system allows for a limited number of skiers on the slopes, and less crowds as well. Guests are able to gain greater mountain access with advanced ticket sales and required reservations for Ikon and Mountain Collective passholders. This is just one reason why Jackson Hole is truly a perfect winter destination.
