Not Just Any Hole
The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is located at Teton Village (Wyoming) and at only 12 miles (20 km) from Jackson. As the name “Teton” suggests, the resort is located in the Teton Range. The resort is named after the Jackson Hole valley-a valley particularly known for an impressive continuous vertical drop of 4,139 feet (1,262 m). The resort, on the other hand, is known for being a great destination for experts and intermediates, and less so for beginners (at least beginners who won’t do the mistake of adventuring on a challenging terrain).
Jackson Hole has an aerial tram with a vertical rise of 4,139 feet (1,262 m) that reaches an elevation of 10,450 feet (3,185 m). While some might feel that taking this tram is the best way to move around Jackson Hole, there are several other lifts, including seven fixed chairlifts, four high-speed detachable quad chairlifts, and eight Bridger gondolas.
Experienced skiers will be happy to know that most of the runs in Jackson Hole are ideal for them and they will find more than 4,000 vertical feet of skiing. It may also be interesting to know most challenging terrains in the resort include chutes, bowls, and glades. Committed and experienced adventurers might be curious to explore out of bounds areas, which can be accessed through marked gates. It is important to notice that out of bounds areas are not to be accessed without a proper avalanche safety gear.
Intermediate skiers won’t be disappointed either, as almost half of the remaining runs are recommended for them. Beginners, on the other hand, will find only a few runs that are appropriate for their needs.
