Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

By

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is what it is - the steep and deep of U.S. ski resorts - the proving ground of the young and restless and the proven ground of a generation of legendary skiers.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Profile

Mike Doyle
Jackson Hole is located in Teton Village, Wyoming with 116 ski trails served by 14 lifts. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has two mountains in the heart of the Tetons - Rendezvous and Apres Vous - 2,500 acres of terrain, a 4,139' vertical rise, and 459" of average snowfall.

Skiing Jackson Hole

Mike Doyle
On an early season trip to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort the snow hadn't yet piled up enough to allow safe skiing for the Jackson Hole tram to run. However, I did get a lot of good skiing in and some good photos - more than enough to make me want to return in high season.

A Few Minutes With Tommy Moe

Mike Doyle
I had the opportunity to sit and talk with former U.S. Olympian gold and silver medalist Tommy Moe. Moe may have retired from World Cup competition but he sure hasn't retired his competitive drive. Be assured that Tommy isn't all racer all the time, he loves to freeski at Jackson Hole and if you see him walking around the village just say hello and I'll bet you can get a photo also.

Teton Village at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Mike Doyle
Teton Village is a compact arrangement of hotels, eateries, ski shops and apre ski, all centered around the celebrated Jackson Hole tram. Stroll through the village anytime, day or night, and you will be cheerfully greeted by passersby. Without a doubt Jackson Hole is one of the most friendly ski resorts you'll find.

Jackson Hole Ski Camps

Mike Doyle
Jackson Hole has a full schedule of ski and snowboard camps for all level skiers including the Classic Ski and Race Camp, Steep and Deep Camp, Womens Camps, a Backcountry Camp, a Telemark Camp, an Adaptive Camp, and a Heli Skiing Camp. I had the opportunity ski a day with the Classic Ski and Race Camp and even got to see myself "race" on TV.

Jackson, Wyoming

Mike Doyle
Jackson, Wyoming is synonymous with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. However, it is from the iconic Town of Jackson the the resort gets it signature cowboy image. Jackson may appear to be hanging on to the old with the Cowboy Grille and Cadillac Grille, but it is welcoming the future with a multi-million dollar airport expansion. On the front porch of the Grand Tetons and with a National Elk Refuge for a backyard Jackson is a jewel of the U.S.A.

Getting Around Jackson Hole

Mike Doyle

Jackson Hole, while the moniker for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, is itself, a big, long valley. Logistically, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and the slopeside Teton Village is 12.5 miles from the Town of Jackson and the Jackson Hole Airport is 9 miles outside of town. Hotels in Teton Village include the Teton Mountain Lodge and Spa and the Hotel Terra.
