For the first time and history Jackson Hole Mountain Resort opened the entire mountain including the hobacks and lower faces on November 27th. This is the highest snowpack ever recorded in history this early in the year! It was definitely a memorable day and one I will never forget. I have skied Jackson Hole ever since I was 2 years old and never remember skiing so much powder so early in the year. Also the entire day on Saturday there were no lines, which was also really very special. Everyone that was out skiing was locals and the energy on the hill was amazing! With our amazing tram, it shuttles 100 people up the mountain so it spread people out quickly. Also a lot of people were done skiing by 12, because of being tired. They needed their ski fitness! Ha ha! I did a lot of fast laps with no lines, I could not remember the last time that I had skied so much in bounds and gotten so many powder runs, that were not getting tracked. I definitely slept well that night, I was glad I had been strength training for

skiing, but the long and fast runs were still hard. I think this winter is shaping up to be amazing and I can't wait to be a part of it!
