Jackson Hole - Vacation Rentals & Ski Lodging

Ever since opening its slopes back in the 1960’s, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has been seen as a true test of ability for skiers looking to make a name for themselves. The resort itself brings a lot more to the plate than just being a place to jump off cliffs into waist deep powder. Jackson Hole showcases a refreshing cowboy sense of character both on and off the slopes, and visitors will be equally wooed by the authentic and welcoming Wild West atmosphere that permeates both Teton Village and downtown Jackson Hole alike. Everything down to the shopping and dining at Jackson Hole reminds you of days past and it makes for a truly great vacation.

The genuine cowboy vibe in downtown Jackson was there even before the slopes were. This old western vibe is what draws many people to downtown Jackson, from the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, a Western museum and saloon, to the many western styled shops and boutiques, as well as the fun antique stores. For the kids, you can be sure that they will love making their way through the town with a homemade ice cream in hand while pretending to be a little buckaroo. Jackson Hole is truly a magical ski destination for the entire family.

There have also been a number of ski greats of have made their names on the slopes of Jackson Hole. Icons like Doug Coombs and the founders of ski movie production team Teton Gravity Reseach (TGR) earned their stripes by taking on the powdery lines of Jackson Hole. Runs like Central Couloir, Corbett’s, Once is Enough and Pucker Face continue to be featured in ski movies each year because of their timeless terrain.

Skiing in Jackson Hole is like skiing in the clouds. The resort often experiences a type of inversion, with cold air being trapped at the base of the mountain by clouds, while the top of the mountain is bright and sunny with visibility for miles. It’s truly something you have to see with your own eyes.

On the mountain, you’ll be impressed by the awesomely rugged terrain of the Teton Mountains. A Jackson Hole ski vacation will always be cream-of-the-crop with expert skiers due to the advanced and extreme terrain boasted by its slopes, as well as the easily accessed side-country. The terrain at Jackson is known across the globe for being some of the most challenging and rewarding anywhere. From tight chutes, like the iconic Corbett’s Couloir, and big airs to deep snow and steep runs, these are many of the features that make Jackson Hole famous. However, there are also plenty of wide-open trails for beginners to enjoy, and picturesque cruisers and mogul runs for intermediates also make up the terrain. Beginner runs are found on the bottom half of the mountain, off of the Eagle’s Chair and Teewinot Quad. Intermediate mountain goers will enjoy the views from the top of Jackson Hole’s Tram, much of which is due to meandering fun runs everywhere you look, such as Amphitheater and Nez-Perce Traverse. In addition, Teewinot Face is an entire section on the looker’s right of the mountain for intermediate skiers, which canbe accessed via Apres Vous Quad.
