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!

I've never been so exhilerated and exhausted all at once. The place checks your ego, but there's nothing wrong with that. 15 minutes from the airport and alot of fun off the mountain too.

A lot of vertical, but perhaps a little shy on steepness compared to Aspen Mountain.

Jackson has loads of steeps and plenty of powder. I think Jackson Hole consistently gets the best snow conditions in years when snow is plentiful because of its colder temperatures. The snow is light and powdery.

We were pleased with everything at Jackson Hole. The kid ski/ride school was excellent, friendly, easy to use. Parking was never an issue. Could rent lockers for a reasonable price. My rental skis were accidentally taken by another skier, they gave me substitute skis until the... More

Jackson Hole skiing isn't as near beautiful as Targhee, but is extremely beautiful. The resort sits above the beautiful town of Jackson Hole. I love the view while skiing down the Mountain.
