JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will be closed through the weekend because of a power outage in the area and because of another winter storm that is expected Wednesday night.

Resort spokeswoman Anna Cole said Wednesday that all events scheduled at the resort this weekend are canceled, including Skijoring and Special Olympics competitions. Power could be out for a week.

A wind storm is suspected of downing 17 utility poles along the Moose-Wilson Road on Tuesday night, causing a major power outage in Teton County.

The resort’s heavy equipment and some staff will be helping to clear snow so repair crews can put up temporary wooden poles.

Teton Village is not officially evacuated, but sheriff’s Sgt. Matt Carr says it “is turning into a ghost town right now.”
