Jackson Hole is a ski resort on steroids. Nicknamed “The Big One”, it has big vertical and terrain, and has a gnarly reputation for steep challenging runs that attract many local and international hard-core skiers and snowboarders.
You ask, "What is Jackson all about?" It's about terrain, challenge and scenery. It's about the wide variety of skiing terrain and extreme challenges for the intermediate and advanced skier. It's about the 460" average annual snowfall, 2500 skiable acres, 116 trails, 2 bowls, 10 surface lifts and a gondola, plus a vertical of 4,139 feet. 10% beginner terrain, 40% intermediate, 50% advanced/expert. Always known as an expert mountain, it’s now more accessible to intermediate skiers with a new high-speed quad and increased snow making improvements to "Apres Vous" Mountain.
As the tram heads up the hill jammed full of early morning powder seekers, you notice one thing – the consistent fall line, the steeps and the vertical. Jackson Hole has some the most challenging (read FUN) terrain in North America. There is also some genuinely frightening stuff for the uninitiated. In Jackson Hole even the cat tracks are all marked intermediate, not because they’re steep, but because of where you’ll potentially end up if you come off one. When a sign at Jackson Hole says ‘cliff’ it really means it!
Where is Jackson Hole? Jackson Hole ski resort is located a few miles outside of the cowboy town of Jackson, Wyoming, site of several Clint Eastwood movies. There is an airport at Jackson, with domestic flights from various major US cities.
