After sweeping up accolades from national publications, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will give back to the community with a Free Ski Day on Friday.

Yes, free skiing and snowboarding at the Teton Village resort.

Teewinot, Apres Vous, Casper and Marmot chairs will be running. Guests are asked to make a donation of $1 or more, which will be given to Teton Adaptive Sports and Friends of Pathways. The resort will match donations up to $5,000.

The START bus will run to the village for free, parking in the Ranch Lot is free, there will be free clinics for adults and kids, and various eateries will offer $1 food and beverages. Jackson Hole Sports will wax boards for $1.

The promotion hearkens back to the time, as late as the 1990s, when the resort used to offer a nonprofit benefit day at the start of each season.

Enjoy the free amenities while you can. The price of a single-day lift ticket will be as high as $117 this winter.

    Drive to the Villa, enjoy the free parking and then donate some scrilla to Friends of Pathways as a way to offset your carbon emissions.
