Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
Corbet Couloir, one of the expert runs at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
Going to Jackson Hole is like traveling back into the Wyoming of the 1800's. While there's no shootouts on Main Street these days, the town and Resort sport wooden boardwalks and lots of cowboy hangouts. As the Gateway to Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, the National Elk Refuge and Bridger-Teton National Forest, the whole area has been preserved from modern urbanization. You're just as liable to come across an elk or a moose walking in downtown as a modern mountain man.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort offers some of North America's most difficult terrain. 2 peaks, 2,500 acres and a vertical drop of 4,139 feet with 22 miles of groomed runs... sounds like skiing heaven to me. The Jackson Mountain Resort base area offers ski and snowboard retail and rental shops, the Mountain Sports School, the Kids Ranch (ages 6 months to 17 years), plus several excellent restaurants and a coffee/espresso bar. There are also several restaurants on the mountain, one of which (The Couloir Restaurant & Bar) requires an evening Gondola ride under the incredible Wyoming night stars. Lodging in the area ranges from slopeside (ski in/ski out) rooms to luxurious view suites to condos to luxury mountain homes.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is located about 12 miles northwest of Jackson on Highway 390. The Resort is about 40 minutes from the Jackson Airport which offers non-stop service to several major US destinations.
