Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole

Teton Village - Wyoming, United States

Snowboard, Ski

Named by the prestigious Ski Magazine as the best resort in North America, Jackson Hole can be found in the Teton mountain range in the state of Wyoming. It combines the old cowboy spirit with a cosmopolitan essence. All riders, no matter what level, will be able to feel the unbeatable snow quality, which covers over more than a thousand hectares of skiable domain, under their feet.

Jackson Hole resort sits at the base of two mountains, Après Vous and Rendezvous. It has 116 pistes, 50% of which are advanced, 40% are intermediate and 10% are beginner. You’ll also find more than 3000 acres of off piste trails. Be careful on the expert pistes, as they are steep slopes between the trees and require a lot of control. You’ll find the best off piste terrain in the Green River and Cody Bowl zones, the runs from the Rendezvous Mountain are only suitable for experts and Corbet’s Couloir and its famous vertical drop will leave you speechless. Carving lovers will find some long, fast runs at Gros Venture. Beginners also have a dedicated area but the slopes are still a little steep.

Jackson Hole is home to two terrain parks, there is one for beginners on the Bronco trail and an advanced park on Eagle’s Rest, along with four Burton Stash Parks (Ashley Ridge, Campground, Deer flats and Antelope Flats) where wood and other natural elements are used in harmony with nature. There is also a halfpipe by Après Vous.

Conditions

The resort opens at the end of November and normally closes at the beginning of April, depending on the conditions. To coincide your visit with the international slalom, freeride, bike and skate events, you should go during January and February. There is also more snowfall during these months.
