There’s Something for Everyone in Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Love wildlife viewing, national parks, a historic, western feel and some fantastic skiing? Then look no further than Jackson Hole, Wyoming!
With Jackson Hole Airport conveniently located 20 miles from the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and nonstop flights from 12 major US cities, it is by far the most accessible destination resort in the Rockies.
Located more than 1.2 miles above sea level, in the Northwest corner of Wyoming, the Town of Jackson is at once “cowboy and cosmopolitan.” On Town Square, log cabins from the 19th century share the boardwalk with prime examples of contemporary Western architecture. Locally-owned boutiques with runway fashions rub elbows with Western shops stocking t-shirts and lariats.
While Jackson Hole’s reputation for “steep and deep” precedes itself, you might be surprised to learn that of the 2500 acres of the best skiing and riding in North America, beginner and intermediate trails actually make up half of the terrain, making it an ideal location for a family ski vacation, or for the novice skier.
The Town of Jackson and the surrounding national parks and forests provide endless activities that will help you create the perfect ski vacation.
And while there are plenty of opportunities for ski lessons and runs on the powder, activities other than skiing in Jackson Hole include dogsledding, elk refuge sleigh rides, cross country skiing, hot springing, snow biking, Yellowstone tours, snowmobiling, and much more. The hardest part will be choosing which ones fit your ski getaway!
