Jackson Hole continues to famously deliver legendary powder snow, 4,139 continuous vertical feet, 2500 acres of beginner, intermediate and expert skiing and snowboarding and a genuine “Last of the Old West” atmosphere. A gateway to the world renowned national parks of Grand Teton and Yellowstone, it’s now easier than ever to get to Jackson Hole with expanded airline service from thirteen major cities across the US and improved terrain to suit all abilities. In a move to continue to broaden the appeal of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, in December 2012 a new, high speed, four passenger detachable chair opened at mid-mountain. Along with the new Casper Lift, the Casper intermediate trail network has received extensive summer grooming, expanding and improving this classic blue terrain, bringing a whole new experience to visitors.

Best tips for Jackson Hole
When we first visited Jackson Hole ski resort in the early 1990s, you went for its gnarly mountain, shedloads of snow and big vertical – simple as that. It had few facilities at the base or on the mountain, and an antiquated lift system. Now, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary, Jackson has a modern (though still inadequate) cable car, a gondola, three fast chairs serving easy and intermediate terrain, a bunch of upscale hotels at the base, two table-service restaurants on the mountain – and many more beginners, intermediates and families around as a result. Some old hands hate the changes; we love them. Now, we get the best of both worlds – superb snowy steeps on the one hand, decent lunches and stylish lodgings on the other. The town of Jackson, with its wooden sidewalks, cowboy saloons and pool halls, sits on the edge of Jackson Hole – a high, flat valley surrounded by mountain ranges in Wyoming. Jackson gets many more visitors in summer than in winter, thanks to the nearby national parks. The slopes are a short drive away. At the base is Teton Village, which has developed a lot over the past few years, with an increased choice of bars, restaurants and hotels – some notably upscale. A popular excursion by car or daily bus is over the Teton Pass to the smaller resort of Grand Targhee, which gets even more snow. Read the Rest of the West intro.
