VIDEO | Looking Back at The 595-Inch Season at JHMR

Some seasons are good, and some seasons are REALLY good. We'd hazard a guess and say that this season in Jackson Hole definitely falls into the latter category, with record snowfall (yet again!), and near-perfect conditions day in and day out for literal months. Thanks to some very favorable weather patterns, we experienced one of the longest continuous "Teton Trickle" patterns we've ever seen, where it never really snowed a whole lot at once, but it also never really stopped snowing. According to the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center, we saw 41 days this winter where it snowed six inches or more. What does that mean? Daily refreshes, stable avalanche conditions, consistently moderate temperatures, and just really really good riding. 

Like clockwork, JHMR finally wrapped up its winter season on April 9 with a final day of warm and sunny spring skiing to mark the end of another record-setting winter. The resort recorded 595 total inches of snowfall for the 2022-23 season, which set the record for total snowfall in Rendezvous Bowl. That all stacked up without much fluctuation in temperatures throughout the latter half of the winter, providing for a solid and deep base in terrain that often doesn't fill in. Anybody who rode inbounds or out the gates in March and April noticed the extra snow, with legendary lines being ticked off by local skiers, including a few first descents and rare repeats.

Next year, JHMR already has plans to extend the season by a week, to give guests a total of 143 days of riding. The mountain will re-open for summer operations on May 20, with the Aerial Tram running to bring guests into the alpine. The Sweetwater Gondola, Bridger Gondola, Teewinot Chairlift, Jackson Hole Bike Park, and Via Ferrata will open shortly thereafter.
