Jackson Hole kicked off the ski season in a big way this Saturday, with the first all-mountain opening of Rendezvous in its history, thanks to a record 130-inch base, reports the Associated Press.

“There’s way more snow up here than there ever was last year,” resort communications director Zahan Billimoria told the Jackson Hole News & Guide. “It’s unbelievable. It’s literally unbelievable.”
