Opening Weekend Winter 2016/2017

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort opened on Thursday, December 1, 2016. The 2016/2017 season is poised to be a stellar winter with above average snowfall. To date, the resort has received over 175″ of snowfall. Let’s keep the snow coming.

The new Sweetwater Gondola, located between the Bridger Gondola and Teewinot High Speed Quad, will be opening this weekend on Saturday, December 17, 2016. The gondola will provide access to a mid-station in the Solitude area and then continue on to the Casper Restaurant.

If predictions ring true, we should be looking towards another top shelf winter in the Tetons.

Early Winter Real Estate Market Update


Walton Ranch Sold After 5 Years on the Market

The Walton Ranch is most widely known for its straight-on view of the Tetons and 1,848 acres that encompass more than three miles along the Snake River north to the Gros Ventre River. It is the largest private property in Jackson Hole and was most recently listed at $39 million. The Walton Ranch sold for an undisclosed amount in early October after being owned by the same family for 50 years.

The land within the Walton Ranch was placed under a conservation easement in 1983 and cannot be used for any commercial development. The ranch runs around 400 to 500 head of cattle per year. The Jackson Hold Land Trust granted the strict easement, which even prohibits hunting elk on the property.



BigLife Magazine caught up with Sun Valley natives and featured professional skiers, Griffin Post and Lynsey Dyer, to get their thoughts on some of the adventures and revelations they experienced while filming Monumental.

BigLife: Griffin, you now live in Jackson Hole and get to spend a couple of days a week skiing in Grand Teton National Park, what is it about that place that is so unique?

Griffin Post: The Park has hordes of visitors in the summer, but it’s a different story in the winter. The sense of solitude is unique, and so are the weather patterns. There can be no snow in town, or even at the ski area, but then you go into The Park and there is a foot of dry blower. Some days you feel like you have Disneyland all to yourself. There are a lot of high consequence lines though, so as much as you want to open it up, you ski conservatively.
