On the heels of their most successful winter to date, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) officials are pleased to announce continued commitment to improving the on and off mountain experience for locals next winter.
JHMR is installing a new triple chair “Sweetwater” that will directly link the beginner terrain to low intermediate terrain at mid-mountain. The base terminal will be reached by riding either Teewinot or Eagles Rest and the top terminal will be situated upslope from Casper Restaurant and Casper Lift.
Sweetwater lift was named following a voting process that allowed all current JHMR employees to pick from a short list of five Wyoming themed names. The lift will take approximately 6 minutes to ride and the vertical rise is 1058 feet. The Poma lift was purchased from Winter Park and is being installed by Outback, a private lift installation company. Construction of the terminals is already underway and project completion is estimated for October.
“With steep slopes and lifts that rise over 4200 vertical feet, beginners through low intermediates have historically struggled here. This new lift will dramatically improve their experience and our teaching environment by allowing gradual transition from green slopes to the gentle blues of Casper. It is a perfect addition for families,” commented Brian Maguire, JHMR Mountain Sports School Director.
In addition to this new lift, Teton Village will see a new 72 seat indoor café open at the base of the Bridger Gondola offering a quick and tasty menu selection. The Mountain Sports School and Private Guide desks will also be moved into the Bridger Center to improve customer service and expedite registration processes.
