Yellowstone's South Entrance is about 90 miles north of Jackson, so definitely within striking distance for a one- to two-night foray. And in answer to your questions, yes to the former, no to the latter. As in, Jackson Hole's season typically runs until early to mid-April, so you'll find plenty of snow to carve (http://away.com/skiing/ski_resort.tcl?Jackson_Hole&id=293212). Yellowstone will be very cold, but some consider this the best season to see the park and its wildlife. The crowds are non-existent compared to summer, plus many of the animals, like its famous wolves, are much easier to spot against the white, snowy backdrop. Check out this post on Away.com's blog for more ideas: http://blogs.away.com/travel/2008/02/winter-travel-t.html. All that said, I do think you may be rushing things a little by trying to do it all in a week. Maybe see how conditions look when you're in J-Hole and make the call then if you want to get in as much skiing as possible.
