The transformation of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort began in the early 60’s by its founders, Paul McCollister and Alex Morley. From humble beginnings, the dream of the co-founders was fully realized decades later with the ingenuity of a family with historic ties to Wyoming. The Kemmerer family, who purchased the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in 1992, has invested heavily in the success of Jackson Hole and the state of Wyoming. With major improvements to operations, lifts and infrastructure, they have brought Jackson Hole Mountain Resort into its present-day glory and world-wide iconic status as “The Big One.”
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is, in part, what has made Jackson a world renowned destination. The rugged terrain that was once only braved by the expert skiers is now accompanied by a plethora of options for all skier and snowboarder abilities. This December marks the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s 50th anniversary and it is truly a benchmark to celebrate.
