FREESKIER heads to Wyoming’s most iconic resort to get the scoop on the upcoming season in the Tetons
It’s been a slow start for many resorts across the United States, with snowfall totals coming in low during early December. But just as we closed in on the holidays, things started to look up and we headed to Jackson Hole to get the inside scoop on what to expect this season in the Tetons. Upon our arrival, Ullr blanketed the resort with a fresh coat of white and we called up local shredders Caite Zeliff, Griffin Post and Jeff Ledger to show us around. While there were still early-season conditions, the new snowfall provided us fresh turns and laid the perfect base for the incoming storm system, which is forecasted to drop more than 50 inches of snow on Rendezvous Mountain over the Christmas holiday. With plenty of snow on the way this year, anytime is a good time to visit Wyoming’s most iconic resort.
If you’re getting ready to head to Jackson Hole this season, here are a few things to keep in mind…
Lifts are running at full capacity while the resort is again limiting daily numbers for everyone’s safety. This means that reservations are required for multi-resort pass holders. If you’re rocking an IKON or Mountain Collective pass, be sure to reserve your days ahead of time.
Masks are required inside the Big Red tram and all buildings. Don’t forget to mask up indoors and be kind to the employees that are working hard to keep you safe and keep the resort operational for your shredding pleasure. No one likes a rule breaker.
Jackson Hole Resort Lodging has plenty of options available from single bedroom condos in the village to ski-in, ski-out mansions for the ballers out there. Check their website for more info.
Teton Village Sports is your one-stop-shop for all your gear needs. Retail, rental and repair—everything you need for a good day out on the hill—is just a stone’s throw from the bottom of the tram. It’s the oldest ski shop in Wyoming and one of the best.
With plenty of snow in the forecast this season, there’s no better time to head to Jackson Hole. Whether it’s a road trip to chase a storm or an opportunity to check the iconic resort off your bucket list, this season is shaping up to be a big one in the Tetons. If you see Caite, Griff or Jeff in the lift line, be sure to say hey—who knows, maybe they’ll show you around their local hill.
