Jackson Hole Ski Resort Review

On a clear day the toy town airport of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, offers an unforgettable ringside view of a frozen tidal wave of granite, the fabulous Grand Tetons.

Jackson Hole is surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in North America and offers a unqiue experience both on and off the slopes. This is a real, old fashioned, Western town, with raised wooden boardwalks and authentic cowboy saloons.

The main ski area is at Teton village, about 12 miles away, but reached by the regular shuttle buses.

In addition there is also the Snow King ski area in town which has some surprisingly steep runs and is open for night skiing.
