Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
Known for its "steep and deep" terrain (Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is home to some of the most advanced in-bounds terrain in the country) and annual snowfalls averaging 450 inches per winter, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is a powder hound’s mecca. But what you might not know is that Jackson Hole has some amazing beginner and intermediate terrain: almost 50% of the resort’s terrain is for less-than-expert skiers. Located in Teton Village, about 12 miles from the town of Jackson, the Mountain Resort is lively year-round with avid skiers and snowboarders in the winter and hikers and bikers in the summer. Of course, the world-famous Jackson Hole Aerial Tram runs year-round and is a fabulous way to take in the expansive views of the Grand Teton National Park, the Snake River Valley and the Gros Venture Range.
