Teton Pass Ski Resort unexpectedly announced several months ago that it would not open for the 2017-2018 ski season.
Teton Pass was purchased by New Zealand native Nick Wood back in 2010.
The owner of the site posted the following message on Facebook in October:
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.
Since then, we haven't heard from the owners or the resort's managers - until today, when we received this message: "The ski area is currently for sale. No offers yet, and no plan to reopen under current ownership."
