About Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Since its inception in the ‘60s, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has been the proving ground for extreme skiers looking to make a name for themselves. The terrain at Jackson is known across the globe for being some of the most challenging—and rewarding—there is. Tight chutes, like the iconic Corbet's Couloir, big airs, deep snow and steep lines are what make Jackson Hole famous. However, there are dozens of wide-open trails for beginners and picture-perfect cruisers and progressive bump runs for intermediates, and much more.
While a Jackson Hole ski vacation will always be top-of-mind with expert skiers as a bucket list destination because of the advanced and extreme terrain on its slopes and easily accessed sidecountry, Jackson brings a lot more to the plate than just being a place for adrenaline junkies to jump off cliffs. Not only does Jackson Hole exude refreshing cowboy character, on and off the slopes, but its All New-All Blue terrain off of Casper chairlift is a game-changer for intermediates.
At Jackson Hole ski resort, you’ll be awed by the breathtakingly rugged Teton mountains, and equally wooed by the authentic and welcoming Wild West atmosphere that pervades both Teton Village and downtown Jackson Hole, which are 15 minutes apart. Everything about Jackson Hole, even down to the shopping and dining is reminiscent of a bygone day and makes for one unforgettable ski vacation.
As you can imagine the tough, genuine cowboy vibe in downtown Jackson predates the ski resorts. This rustic pureness in downtown Jackson is part of the draw for many people, from the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, a Western museum and watering hole all in one, to the many cowboy attire retailers and antique stores. And you can bet that the little ones will surely love perusing through town− homemade ice cream in hand−pretending they’re cowboys or cowgirls. Jackson Hole is truly a magical ski destination for kids age three to 99.
