Wyoming

Surely you’ve heard of the Grand Tetons of Jackson Hole, but did you know that’s just one of eight ski resorts in Wyoming?

Major Ski Resorts

The Grand Teton National Park is surrounded by three ski resorts: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is located in Teton Village just outside of Jackson Hole, just 10 miles away is Snow King, and Grand Targhee Resort is just 48 miles away from Jackson Hole. Located near the border of Idaho, this area's main advantage, besides excellent skiing, is it's proximity to Yellowstone National Park. You will not find an end to the wonders of the area and the amazing feeling that getting back to nature can bring.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort receives just under 500 inches of snow a year, but has lower lift ticket prices and smaller crowds than most resorts of its size. Nearly 1,250 acres are rated for expert and advanced skiers, but the entire base mountain is designated for beginners. They have an excellent Mountain Sports School and advanced skiers can take lessons on training on expert-level terrain at the Steep and Deep Camp or study to surrive sking the backcountry with Backcountry Guide.

Meanwhile, just down the road, Snow King is less known but offers just as impressive mountain riding and skiing. With 400 acres of skiable terrain, and 100 of that is available for night-time sking, something everyone should experience in a state like Wyoming. While 15 percent of the trails are for beginnings, 60 percent of the trails are for advanced skiers! But the mountain offers much more fun like ice skating, tubing, and snowmobile rides including the annual snowmobile race up 1,500 vertical feet.

Located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, Grand Targhee's light powder snow (more than 500 inches annually) and lack of lift lines creates a skier and snowboarder dream mountain. With 2,600 skiable acreage and a vertical drop of 2,270, this is truly a great ski resort.

The ski areas around Jackson Hole are home to spectacular views, deep powder, and resort style living. With plenty do to even if you don't feel like skiing like dog sledding, ice skating, sledding, snowshoeing. Don't forget about snowmobiling—Wyoming has over 1,300 miles of groomed snowmobile trails across the state! Jackson Hole is home to several independent film festivals, artists, excellent restaurants, and plenty of lodging options. Wyoming is still the wild Wild West and you can count on having a roaring good time during your stay. If the silent and natural splendor of nature is more your style, there are countless opportunities to tour the trails, see wildlife, and more.
