When Did Jackson Hole Ski Resort Close?

Jackson Hole Ski Resort is one of the oldest ski resorts in the United States, located in Jackson, Wyoming. It was founded in 1957 by Paul McCollister and has been providing ski enthusiasts with some of the best skiing experiences in the country ever since. The resort has hosted numerous professional ski competitions and boasts some of the longest and most challenging runs in North America.

The resort closed its doors in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This was a difficult but necessary decision as it was not safe to keep people skiing during such an uncertain time. The closure was a blow to both locals and tourists alike, who had been looking forward to spending quality time at this beloved ski resort.

In order to help mitigate the financial losses caused by the closure, Jackson Hole Ski Resort has been offering several different online experiences for guests to enjoy from home. This includes virtual ski lessons with certified instructors, as well as live streaming of events from around the world. In addition, they are also offering guided video tours of some of their most popular trails and other attractions.

The good news is that Jackson Hole Ski Resort reopened on December 15th, 2020 for its 63rd season. Guests can once again enjoy all that this iconic ski destination has to offer, including its renowned terrain parks and off-piste runs. Guests are advised to take necessary precautions when skiing due to Covid-19 restrictions.
