Jackson does something that I'm wondering if very many other resorts do...
Yesterday (April 4) was closing day at JHMR for the 2009-2010 season. Naturally, we closed with more new snow and full-on winter conditions. Almost 60 inches of snow in the last week and we're now under a winter storm WARNING as well as a heavy snow watch.
Anyway, the last day for the public was yesterday, but the ski area was open today for a select few. JHMR opens from 9:00am to noon on the Monday after closing day for two classes of people: Employees of the ski corporation and for season passholders who skied at least 100 days this season (I saw Skiing-in-Jackson and his daughter up there ).
It's a very cool thing that the ski corp does in appreciation of their employees and their "best" customers. A bunch of us were on the first tram this morning and it was spectacular. It was powder, poor visibility, windy; JUST the way Jackson Hole skiers like it.
I just love the fact that our ski corp does this and I was wondering if other resorts do anything similar.
