Dangerous weather closes Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort closed for the day Tuesday because of high winds and avalanche conditions. Resort staff tried to open the mountain Tuesday morning, but by noon decided the resort would remain closed for the safety of staff and guests. No uphill travel is allowed on the mountain, as avalanche mitigation work is underway. “Our operations staff and patrol were on the mountain all morning and attempted to open terrain, but due to winds affecting lift operations and avalanche conditions resulting from the new heavy snowfall, we did not feel comfortable opening for the day,” stated JHMR Vice President Operations Tim Mason. The recent storm dumped 18 inches of snow in the last 48 hours. Snow was expected to continue to affect the Tetons through Wednesday morning. The resort said it was planning to operate Wednesday.
