Jackson Hole (Ski)
If cowboys in the snow appeals, Jackson Hole is the place to go. This wonderful, unspoiled old Wild West town is home to some thrilling steep terrain including one of the US’s largest verticals, deep powder, and a superb snow record. This is much more than just a ski resort though – no trip is complete without seeing the wilderness and wildlife of Yellowstone National Park.
Jackson Hole should be on every fanatical skier’s to do list. A cowboy town beneath North America’s most challenging mountain, Jackson is neither the easiest to get to nor the easiest to ski, but your efforts will be handsomely rewarded. An enviable snow record and a place with great character and history make for a memorable ski trip. This is much more than just a ski resort though – no trip is complete without seeing the wilderness and wildlife of Yellowstone National Park on a husky or snowmobile tour and you can mix up your skiing experience on the Teton Range with some fresh tracks at Grand Targhee or Snowking at night. Finally, save a little energy to experience the hospitality and atmosphere of this wild west town – live music and dancing, card games and pool tables and steaks and beers make this a vacation like no other.
