JACKSON — It all came together for Jerry Blann in his final year as president of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort as the ski area racked up a record 634,500 skier days.“It was planned,” Blann said jokingly. “But seriously, I arrived in Jackson in ’95, when we did 295,000 visits. A lot of effort from an amazing number of people and a lot of capital went in to get to this point, but we’re also learning how to mitigate and manage those skiers at peak times. I always say it starts and ends with the mountain, and I think we’ve done a good job of capturing that culture.”While this year beat the previous record set in 2013-14 by more than 70,000 skier days, perhaps the most noteworthy part of this season’s totals is that the resort increased skier days by 13 percent without surpassing the single-day record.“People don’t necessarily see it, but we’re quietly working to spread our business out so that the impact is less … [Read more...] about Jackson Hole Mountain Resort sets attendance record
(AP) JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. - Every August, the world's financial markets shift their attention from the centers of global commerce - New York, London, Tokyo - to a mountain valley in northwest Wyoming. On Friday, they will hear a speech by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. So how did Jackson Hole, Wyo., come to wield such outsize importance in global economic affairs? In a word, trout. For four years starting in 1978, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City hosted an annual conference at different sites and different times of year. The event drew little attention outside the insular world of economic analysts. What do Americans think of the rich?Will Bernanke launch QE3 from Wyoming?Federal Reserve: Retail sales boost economy Inspired by a conference the Boston Fed held near a picturesque New Hampshire site where the tearjerker "On Golden Pond" was filmed, the Kansas City Fed held its 1981 conference in scenic Vail, Colo. Still no luck. The Vail meeting drew the conference's … [Read more...] about Why world markets focus on Jackson Hole, Wyo.
While the world’s eyes will soon turn to the Winter Games in South Korea, the network that produces the television for those eyes won’t be hosting its VIPs in PyeongChang. Instead, NBC’s wine-and-dine hospitality program for heavy-hitting sponsors will be held in Jackson Hole. It’s the first time the network has not hosted Olympic hospitality in the host country. (At the 2004 Summer Olympics, in Athens, the network held hospitality events in Bermuda, as well as the host country of Greece.) The network insists that the decision to move hospitality to Wyoming was based on hotel room availability, not political tensions on the Korean Peninsula. Three years ago, when organizers began assessing the lodging needs of athletes, volunteers, media and nearly 2,000 NBC workers, NBC quickly realized accommodations around the rural host city of PyeongChang would be limited — especially for a television network trying to impress high-rollers with a rich array of … [Read more...] about NBC to host Olympic VIPs in Jackson Hole, not PyeongChang
