Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reports record year

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reports a strong 2013/2014 winter season characterized by some of the best snow totals  and snowpack depths in the resort’s nearly fifty years, in addition to another  year of record skier visits.

The season  finished with 500 inches of snow, and 140 inch snow depth  making this the fourth deepest snowpack in the 48 year history of the resort.

The  resort’s approximately 563,631 skier visits surpass the previous record set  last winter.  The increase in skier  visits of 12% over last year was achieved with visitation increases in every  month of operation.

“This  winter was the ‘perfect storm’ for JHMR, with a confluence of many factors contributing  to the season. Mother Nature delivered 500 inches of snow, our good fortune of  winning the #1 SKI Magazine ranking,  plus increased air service from twelve US cities all came together to create a  great experience for skiers and riders this year,” stated JHMR President, Jerry  Blann.

“Furthermore,  the Kemmerer Family has consistently invested in JHMR for the long term,” Blann  notes – over the past 18 years the Kemmerer Family has invested an average of  $8 million per year into improvements to the resort.  By comparison over this period, JHMR has  averaged 2.3 times more capital spend per skier visit than all Rocky Mountain  Resorts as a group.
