Jackson Hole Ski Resort

Jackson Hole Wyoming is a great ski resort because of the snow, the incredible steep and challenging terrain and the village and lift infrastructure.


The tram travels up the hill, jammed with early morning powder seekers. You notice one thing at Jackson Hole Ski Resort – the consistent fall line. Jackson Hole boasts some of the most challenging and fun inbound terrain in North America. For the uninitiated, there is some truly frightening stuff. If you see a sign that reads “cliff”, it means there is a restricted area.


Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has promoted the area as a place for Warren Miller-type athletes. According to mountain stats, 50% of the terrain can be considered expert. The trail map doesn’t distinguish between single and double black-diamond runs. This completely undersells the amazingness of Jackson Hole for advanced skiers and snowboarders. There are many blue traverses. However, there are plenty of beautiful fall-line groomed trails (40% of the trails are classified as intermediate), though there are more for intermediates than tentative intermediates. 


There are many better US ski resorts, but the terrain for beginners is sufficient.

It is quite large with 133 trails and 2,500 acres (1.066 ha) of slopes and 4,139 feet (1.261 metres) vertical. There are 3,000 acres of gated backcountry land.


Teton Village is Jackson Hole’s base. Teton Village lodging consists mainly of condos and deluxe hotels that are ski-in/ski-out or very near it. The Teton Village accommodation is expensive, but you get the value of the location and the comfort. Teton Village is quite compact, which makes it stand out from the cookie-cutter US ski resorts.
