When someone buys a hamburger, they often don't realize how much went into making their lunch. The time the rancher put into raising and processing the cow. The long hours the farmer put into growing the lettuce and tomatoes. So is true of a ski resort. With a world-class resort like Jackson Hole, it takes a mammoth effort to keep the mountain ski-ready.

This video published by Jackson Hole Mountain Resorts shows how the mountain is groomed to give it the legendary corduroy that lures skiers and snowboarders from around the globe. From the moment the lift shuts down to when it opens the next morning, someone is working to keep the snow up to par for your epic run.
