Jackson Hole Pauses Pass Sales, But Offers A Look At The Winter

"As of today, we have temporarily paused selling all public Season Pass products while we work with our lodging partners to assist those guests who already have made reservations to come to Jackson this winter."
- Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

In a move similar to that announced at Sugar Bowl Resort in California, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, WY has suspended sales of its season pass products.

Currently, it seems that Jackson Hole pass sales have been paused through the Jackson Hole website, though it has been stated that passes sold through participating JH AIR merchants will still be available.

This truly is a pause. The resort plans to resume selling pass products on October 5th, though 7- and 10-day pass products will no longer be available. Also, the option to request a refund on any pass product for any reason deadline of October 15th has been extended a month to the 16th of November.

The pause in pass sales comes along with an announcement that Jackson Hole will be confirming plans for winter operations in October. These plans will look similar to those having been announced by other mountain and resort corporations over the last few weeks. These include:
  • Reduced capacity in each of our 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 our guests more rapidly uphill.
  • Commencing with the holidays and continuing as long as necessary and when possible, we will start the Teewinot, Sweetwater and Apr├Ęs Vous lifts at 8:30 a.m., subject to snow control efforts so that our 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, we will introduce a boot pack from the top of the Sublette lift.
These actions, along with other guidelines that have been used during summer operations, such as mask & glove requirements, reservations (which will start on October 5th at Jackson Hole), parking and capacity restrictions, etc. will be in use for the winter.
