WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) issued the following statement after it was announced the Kemmerer family was selling the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort to local buyers.
“When I first learned the Kemmerer family was selling the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, I got a lump in my throat. I was instantly relieved when I found out who was buying the resort and what their plan was. This sale is good for the mountain itself, the Teton County community that surrounds it and Wyoming as a whole. I am confident the vision for the mountain will stay the same, and I am hopeful there will be a seamless transition for the town of Jackson and western Wyoming,” said Sen. Lummis. “The Kemmerer family have been incredible stewards of the resort for more than thirty years. With Jay, Connie and Betty at the helm, they’ve turned JHMR into one of the premier winter and summer destinations in the world while upholding the values and character of the local community. I’ve had the honor of calling Jay and his wife, Karen, friends for many years. They are Wyoming through and through and have supported our state, the University of Wyoming and countless causes that are important to protecting our land, water and way of life. For all the have contributed and will continue to contribute to our state, I say thank you.”
