Teton Pass Ski Area won't be open this season

Posted: Updated:

Teton Pass Ski Area, nestled along the front range of the Rocky Mountains, will not be open for business this season.

The announcement was made on the ski area's website. We're told the announcement virtually came out of nowhere and took many people by surprise.

We called the phone number listed on their site, and a message said that the number has been disconnected.

Teton Pass was purchased by New Zealand native Nick Wood back in 2010. The owner of the site posted the following message on Facebook on Tuesday night: 

Unfortunately the ski run will not be opening this ski season. The three owners have been willingly subsidising the operations of the hill since 2010, so the local community had a ski run they could use, and we were proud to do this for the local community. This year it's just not possible.

One of the owners has lost their home in the wild fires in California, and another a business in Florida in the recent hurricane. We are just not able to support the hill this year.

It is a significant amount of money required to operate, and it's just beyond our ability this year. We are so proud of Charles and his hard working crew for all the work they have put in over the years, and the professional manner in which they operated the hill, and the countless hours they put in to make it happen for you all. We are so sorry.

The site's Facebook page is quickly filling up with comments.
