Jackson Hole Mountain Resort wants to increase employee parking for the winter season to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on its workforce and operations. But neighbors question the plan and proposed site, which has been a source of tension for years.

The idea, the resort’s engineer and planner Bill Schreiber told the Teton County Planning Commission on Nov. 9, came after surveying returning employees.

“One common theme that kept cropping up was there was a pretty large amount of employees that were really, really concerned about riding buses, whether it’s START buses or shuttles from Stilson,” Schreiber said. “There really was a need to try to come up with some more options.”

The Planning Commission meeting where Schreiber presented the resort’s plans came before START and the Teton Village Association, which runs a Stilson-to-Teton Village express shuttle, announced a slate of changes for the winter season

Riders and drivers will be required to wear dry, two-ply masks covering their mouths and noses. Windows will be cracked and buses will be cleaned and disinfected daily.
