Why visit Jackson Hole for JHMR Closing week??

For most of the country, the first week of April brings warmer weather and the first signs of Spring. While many folks stow their winter jackets and order the season’s newest swimwear, folks in Jackson Hole savor the last week of skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and celebrate with a week-long lineup of concerts, dining, community activities, and so much more, making it one of the most memorable times to be in Jackson Hole. Locals and visitors alike are out in force to enjoy all that Jackson Hole has to offer as a sort of ‘last hurrah’ before the Spring shoulder season sets in. This year, closing weekend coincides with the Easter holiday and many school’s spring breaks, which is all the more reason to make Jackson Hole your Spring Break venue for 2018!

Closing week kicks off on April 1st with Gaper Day, an April Fool’s Day tradition at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. What you’ll need: your camera and your best, nay, your most ridiculous costume! Born in Jackson Hole, Gaper is a term to refer to an out-of-towner or a beginner on the slopes. But not just any visitor or beginner. Most importantly, Gapers unabashedly sport their 1980’s-era florescent onesies and ill-fitting equipment with all the confidence of a professional skier. Each year on April 1st, everyone joins in on the fun with their most outlandish costume. (The photo for this blog post was taken by our very own Reid Matthews last year on Gaper Day. The photo is just a little taste of the fun that Gaper Day has in store.) Groups of revelers establish themselves at various locals on the ski hill, ski jump competitions are a spectacle to enjoy, and live music is available under the tram.

Below we have listed a number of other events, concerts, and activities, happening across the valley during closing week. We hope to see you this year! Please contact us today for accommodations. info@luxurypropertiesjh.com or 307.200.2121.
