A massive wind storm Tuesday night has forced the closure of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming through the weekend.

The storm blew down a "significant number" of power poles along Highway 390. As a result, Teton Village lost power.

The resort is targeting reopening for Monday at the earliest. Officials are asking everyone to stay off the mountain.

Crews have been working to restore service, but officials expected the impact to last up to seven days. As of Thursday morning, the resort was working with Lower Valley Energy to restore power to the village.

"We ask nobody travels to Teton Village at this time, the roads are hazardous due to excessive water and snow and we want to allow (Lower Valley Energy) to be able to work in the best and safest possible manner," the resort said in a release.

The resort received 29 inches of snow in 72 hours as of Wednesday.
