Jackson Hole breaks records for the 2018/19 season!
Jun 5, 2019
The 2018/2019 winter season at Jackson Hole was one for the record books. Skiers lucky enough to venture to Jackson Hole this season were rewarded with unparalleled deep turns, and what local's are calling, 'all-time conditions'!
Jackson Hole finished off its season with an incredible 505 inches of total snowfall - including the DEEPEST February Ever - breaking previous records with 212 inches of snowfall. Measurable snowfall was received on 23 of the 28 days on the month alone! The base area snow depths from late February through to the end of March were also at record levels, according to the avalanche lab at Teton Village. Jackson definitely lived up to its reputation with endless grade 'A' Teton powder days, which consequently led to the most skier visits in the resort history (715,100 skiers and snowboarders), surpassing the previous record set last year.
Fantastic snow conditions, increased number of flights to/from Jackson airport, and the addition of the Ikon Pass all contributed to the bumper season. With another successful season under its belt, Jackson Hole is already looking forward to the 2019/20 winter. The resort is investing in initiatives to improve the transit, parking, and mountain operations; all which focus on enhancing the skier on-mountain experience. A new chairlift (called the Eagle's Rest) is scheduled to open in November, providing new access for more advanced beginner skiers to the Solitude Station learning area. The snowmaking system at Jackson Hole will also be extended.
With snow conditions like these, now is the time to add Jackson Hole to your list of must-ski destinations!
