Overview by Dina Mishev

The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is, in its own words, "Like nothing you have skied before." This sign, on a T-shirt in nearly every shop in town, hangs above the entrance to the resort's tram dock and goes on to say, "It is huge. With variable terrain from groomed slopes to dangerous cliff areas and dangerously variable weather and snow conditions, you could become lost. You could make a mistake and suffer personal injury or death. Give this mountain the respect it deserves." The cowboys that called Jackson Hole home at the turn of the last century might have been inclined to tell tall tales, but this sign is meant as a very truthful, and serious, warning.

Jackson's 100-person aerial tram, 10 lifts, and eight-person gondola service 2,500 acres of skiing on two neighboring mountains. An additional 3,000 acres of unpatrolled backcountry terrain exist in the adjoining Bridger Teton National Forest and Grand Teton National Park. Excluding the backcountry, 10 percent of Jackson's terrain is beginner, 40 percent intermediate, and 50 percent expert. There are 22 miles of groomed trails, the longest of which is a 7.2-mile traverse of mixed terrain from the 10,450-foot summit of Rendezvous Mountain.

The 116 "official" trails at Jackson include bowls, couloirs, wide-open groomers, trees, and mellow faces. Just as many unofficial trails wind their way down the mountain. Skiers at Jackson tackle its two mountains in one of two ways: Rather like children at the local swimming pool, they either jump right into it and take the experts-only tram to reach the top of Rendezvous Bowl or ease themselves into it by starting with the resort's two beginner lifts, the

John rates Jackson Hole
Yes, it's pricey, but you get what you pay for. This is a top quality resort with some of the most challenging skiing in the USA. Excellent accomodations and staff is more than helpful.When the weather cooperates, the powder skiing is like skiing in heaven. Pros: Easy to access, Well maintained. Cons: Expensive.

Jackson Hole is one of skiing's classic destinations. It's pricey, for sure, but there are great runs all over the mountain. We got a little skunked on snow the last time I went (Dec 2009). Sadly, I had to fly out of Idaho Falls, ID in the middle of a huge snowstorm! Still, even with the minimal snow, the terrain couldn't be beat. Runs in Casper Bowl we're blown in from the wind, and the new tram is an experience unto itself. A post-ski stop at the Mangy Moose bar and restaurant is a must for any skier. Pros: Short lines, Good tours, Good nightlife, Well maintained, Great snow. Cons: Expensive.
