Introduction to Jackson Hole
The ski area of Jackson Hole is a down-to-earth casual resort, while the Town of Jackson (12 miles from the resort) definitely has a cowboy flavor. The term "Jackson Hole" received it's name from earlier trappers who consider the valley as Jackson's trapping hole. The ski resort of Jackson Hole was established in 1963 on Rendezvous Mountain, on the eastern side of the Tetons. The airport (JAC) is the only commercial airport authorized by Congress on National Park land. As you drive from the airport to town, look to your left and you can often see thousands of elk in the National Elk Refuge. The average temperature in winter ranges from 25 degrees in January to 38 degrees in March.
With its awesome advanced skiing and exciting nightlife, Jackson Hole rightfully remains one of the nation’s hottest ski destinations for your next ski vacation.
The Jackson Hole Mountain
Located just 22 miles from the Jackson airport (JAC) and 90 miles northeast of Idaho Falls (IDA), Jackson Hole is a 2,500-acre ski resort with a jaw-dropping 4,139 vertical feet. It is world-renowned Forbes Magazine 2013 top ten resorts) for its deep powder (average of 500 inches a year) and expert ski terrain, as well as its amazing, breathtaking views of the Grand Teton. Jackson Hole is primarily thought of as an advanced skier’s mountain because of photography taken off of Corbet's Couloir, S and S, and other runs off of Headwall and the Casper Bowl. Note-The Casper Bowl chair does not go to the top of the ridge-line. BUT there is plenty of room for novices. Jackson Hole’s beginner terrain is equal in size to half the size of Aspen Mountain. Most of the beginner in the resort is located at the bottom, right corner of Jackson Hole Mountain. The Casper Bowl triple chair opened up almost all of the mid-mountain terrain to intermediate skiers.
The Town of Jackson Hole
The town of Jackson is perfectly laid back and casual- a manifestation of its prominent Old West roots. There is an abundance of restaurants with every cuisine imaginable, and at the local bars great company and fabulous spirits abound. There is no shortage of entertainment at such places as the Cowboy Bar which replace bar stools with saddles, Wort Hotel, Town Square, White Buffalo, and Snake River Brewery to name a few. But the locals will tell you to stop by the Bunnery Bakery for breakfast and Bubba's for dinner if you like BBQ. (In Teton Village the Mangy Moose, Snake River Grill, and Nicks are three of the more popular establishments.)
The town of Jackson is exciting and an authentic little town to vacation.
