While the magic of fall is still happening in Jackson, this doesn’t mean you can’t start thinking about your Jackson Hole winter plans. Believe it or not, our luxury villas are starting to fill up now for winter. But you are probably curious about what Jackson Hole Mountain Resort plans to do this winter. They recently released an update of their winter plans to accommodate the need for physical distancing to reduce crowding and to keep everyone safe which we are summarizing here:
- Reduced capacity in each of their restaurants, supplemented with heated tents and additional tables for dining.
- Reduced crowding in the base area through queue management and maze configurations, along with increased lift speeds when possible to move guests more rapidly uphill.
- Commencing with the holidays and continuing as long as necessary and when possible, they will start the Teewinot, Sweetwater and Après Vous lifts at 8:30 a.m., subject to snow control efforts, so that guests can move out of the base area earlier and enjoy more time on the snow.
- The Aerial Tram will operate but at a significantly reduced capacity on a first-come, first-served basis. For additional access to Rendezvous Bowl and the backcountry, they will introduce a boot pack from the top of the Sublette lift.
- A maximum daily capacity has been established for guests at JHMR and will limit the number of tickets available for purchase each day to enable sufficient physical distancing in the base area, buildings and facilities to keep guests safe.
- Starting October 5, tickets will be sold through an online advanced ticket purchasing system for day and afternoon tickets.
More information on the resorts plan can be found on jacksonhole.com in their recent update and faqs.
