Jackson Hole Mountain Resort closes for season due to coronavirus

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort have announced they are now closed for the season.

The resort initially closed this morning (local time) due to “heavy snowfall” and limited ski patrol staff due to road closures.

They then posted around lunchtime on their home page of their website that they would be closed for the season and posted a multi paragraph statement on their dedicated Covid-19 page revealing a verbal order from the Governor closing the mountain.

That statement has now been removed and replaced with a shorter statement (see below) on both their site and social at 2pm local time. With more information to come later today.

Confused? These are trying times. Either way, the end result is that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is now officially closed for this season.
