TETON VILLAGE, Wyo.– Phase two of the Powderhorn employee housing project will begin this month, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) announced yesterday.

Three four-storey buildings will be constructed, adding 30 employee housing units, totaling 90 beds.

The project will be located on the same property as the current JHMR employee accommodation on Powderhorn Lane opposite the new post office and close to Picnic and Target. The first phase was completed in 2014.

The apartments will be a combination of one bedroom, two bedroom and four bedroom apartments.

“JHMR is proud to invest in affordable housing options for our workforce that will alleviate pressure on community housing demand,” said JHMR President Mary Kate Buckley.

“This most recent investment follows the North Stilson complex of 12 two-bedroom townhouses which opened in May 2021 and adds to Powderhorn 1 and a number of other short-term and term that we offer to our seasonal and permanent employees,” Buckley noted. “I would like to thank City Council and planning staff and our Teton County Commissioners for their support of our efforts to develop affordable workforce housing.”

Construction will begin in mid-April and is expected to take 16 to 18 months, making rooms available for employees in the 2023-24 season, JHMR says.
