Overview

The Good

  • Legendary steeps and world-class terrain, a true expert's paradise
  • The longest continuous vertical of any ski resort in the US
  • Easily accessible back-country terrain
  • Efficient lift system

The Bad

  • Not suitable for never-ever skiers
  • Crowded slopes
  • Colder than resorts in Colorado and Nevada 

Find Freshies: For some of the world's best inbounds powder skiing, the Hobacks is where it's at. The powder here is deep, but be sure to get here early before the sun turns it into sludge! 

Ditch the Crowds: Avoid the Amphitheater blue run, it's a designated slow zone and a real bottleneck that sees skiers of all levels. 

Local's Pick: Hike along the Headwall to the Caspar Bowl gates and try one of the Shots, for a true backcountry experience (but still inbounds)! The powder-filled Hobacks are another spot not to be missed!

Great and beautiful place, unfortunately hard to get there because of the high prices of airlines. However a visit at Grand Targhee is a must. Great snow conditions with lots of powder days. Expensive. ... More

The best all around mountain in north America! When the pow is fresh there is no better place to be. Around every corner there is always something to get your heart rate pumping, could be tree runs, drop offs, natural hips and of course leg burning runs from top of the tram. Wish... More

I can't say anything about Jackson that the ski/ride community hasn't known for decades and is even better known since winning a bunch of awards. Like glades, a ton of snow, well maintained EVERYTHING, and the ability to make your booty hole pucker? Go to Jackson. Just expect... More

Jackson hole is by far the best resort in the United States. The terrain is so steep, yet gets so much powder. I always feel so challenged every time I come to Jackson, which is what drives me to come back more and more. No resort comes to Jackson Hole!!... More

Jackson Hole is an incredible winter playground for advanced and expert skiers. It has the best inbounds terrain in the country and often feels as though you’re skiing backcountry. It’s a staple of mine every season and I look forward to visiting every time. ... More
