No Power, No Powder : Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Closed For The Day

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has been getting pounded with snow and aggressive weather, which caused major power outages in Teton Village that started on Tuesday evening. As of 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, power was still out at the resort, which has suspended operations for the day.

Over 29 inches of snow has fallen at the Wyoming resort in the past 48 hours, and that along with strong winds, damaged numerous power lines. Reports say that 3,500-4,000 people have been affected by the power outages in Teton Village and three surrounding subdivisions.

Crews are currently on scene and are working to get things back up and running, but there’s no set time for reopening.
