One other thing to add about skiing Jackson Hole this winter...
There will no longer be *any* free parking at Teton Village this winter. The only parking that will be available at the base of the ski area will be paid parking. It was $5.00 per car per day last year. I'll post whatever the new rate is later this fall.
If you don't want to pay to park, your only choices will involve shuttles or buses. There will be free parking (and free shuttles to/from the Village) at the now-under-construction public parking lot on the corner of Hwy 390 (the Teton Village Road) and Hwy 22 (the road that goes west over Teton Pass).
The shuttles from the parking area will start early in the morning, perhaps 6:30am or so, and go pretty late. I'll post those hours as well once they're available.
You can also ride the public transportation system, known as START. Those buses have stops all through the town of Jackson, at Snow King ski area, at the Jackson Hole Racquet Club (where I live), and at the Village. They start early in the morning and go late in the evening.
Also, any of you who choose to stay at the Wagon Wheel can take their free shuttle to either Snow King or the Village. Their shuttle times are posted on their website. I believe, but didn't confirm, that their first shuttle to the Village leaves at 8:00am.
One serious consideration about skiing Jackson Hole is timing in the morning if it's a powder day. If you want to be on the first public tram on most powder days, you would need to be standing in the tram maze by about 7:45am at the latest. That's for a 9:00am first car. Like it or not, that's how it works. Alternatively, you can get in line for the Bridger Gondola at about 8:45am and be among the first up that lift and have access to a lot of the mountain and the other lifts available from there.
It's cold and cloudy here this morning and feels like fall
