When a friend of mine recently asked me to describe my experience at Jackson Hole, the first word that came to mind was WOW!
This simple word perfectly sums up how I feel about this mountain. After all, Jackson always provides a challenge that is guaranteed to put my skills to the test. And, talk about steep! It’s even got a couple of double blue diamond runs, which is something I’d never seen before Jackson Hole. You’ll definitely feel the pull of gravity on these wide groomers and trust me, you’ll need to control your speed otherwise these runs will take you down— fast! Jackson is also home to the celebrated Corbet’s Couloir, which is the perfect choice for adrenaline junkies. The best way to describe Jackson is a colossal hole that is just overflowing with snow. With 10 metres of snow every year, for the last 8 years, it’s easy to see why.
Jackson Hole also happens to be a hip western ski town. Its wooden sidewalks, multiple saloons and rustic comfort food will leave you feeling like you’re in the Wild West. Adding to that “wild” feel is the nearby National Elk refuge where you can observe thousands of elk during the winter season. The best part? The airport is located just a few short kilometres from town. What more could you ask for?
