The new Teton lift will be launched on Dec 19 2015 the precise day that the Jackson Hole lifts started turning 50 years ago!
The new lift will make 200 acres of terrain much more easily accessible in the Craggs area of the mountain.
Previously this terrain was only available if you wanted to hike with your skis even though it's intermediate & advanced level skiing.
The new Teton lift will take you 1600 vertical feet & will be a high speed quad chairlift.
The new wide groomed runs & gladed tree skiing off the Teton lift will be a fantastic addition to the skiing & snowboarding at Jackson Hole ski resort.
Jackson Hole will also renovate the Rendezvous Lodge & turn it into a bistro style eating establishment with 120 seats.
