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!

This is probably the most interesting and challenging mountain I've ever skied. I would. It hesitate to go back. I've been there three times and enjoyed it each time. Very varied slopes for skiers of all abilities.

This a no nonsense mountain. Would not recommend for someone looking to ski 2 trails and hit the bar. Challenging fun runs with great scenery throughout. Had awesome snow totals last year, our group lived it.

It's steep - it pushes me to be a better skier. But if I'm not in a mood to be pushed, there's plenty of stuff I can do.

I have skied all over Noth America and a few places in europe, and there is no where I would rather ski that Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It has everything an expert skier dreams about; more steeps than you can ski in a week, great snow, and incredibly easy access to a sick... More

Based on the research I was able to do, Jackson Hole historically had a better ski conditions for the month of January. Their verticle drop and lodging in such close proximity to the mountain was a key factor as well.
