Jackson Hole is an exclusive mountain resort with limitless heliskiing.
The majestic Tetons of northwest Wyoming provide a spectacular backdrop for your Jackson Hole ski vacation. Far from the crowds and close to nature with terrain so vast it appears uncharted, Jackson Hole is indeed a rare breed. With 2,500 acres of legendary inbounds terrain, a 4,139′ vertical rise, 459″ of average snowfall each winter, and unparalleled backcountry access, Jackson Hole offers a truly unique winter experience.
Two distinct mountains in the heart of the Tetons – Rendezvous and Apres Vous – make up Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and have been home to incredible skiing and snowboarding for the past 40 years.
The deep, fluffy snow that skiers and snowboarders crave.
Fewer crowds, shorter lift lines and more runs. Wyoming is the least populated state in the country. Which leaves a lot more room for the animals. In the western part of the state, you’ll find all of the animals you remember from your childhood storybooks.
The views from the tops of the slopes are picturesque and beautiful. All of the natural wonders in Yellowstone National Park are just a hop, skip, and a jump away. And the area is filled with more wildlife than you can shake a ski pole at.
Nothing will put a smile on your face quite as fast as when you start up a snowmobile. And there’s no better place to be if you want to romp around in deep powder, or execute big, wide donuts than Wyoming. Wyoming is so snowy and spacious, snowmobiles were made for this place.
Winter is Coming
Ah, November. The month when Mother Nature can’t decide if it’s a balmy fall day in the 70s, or the heart of winter. November is when one by one, the resorts finally start opening for the skiers and snowboarders who have been eagerly waiting those first turns.
It’s a month when weather reports are obsessed over, and everyone becomes an amateur meteorologist. The Farmer’s Almanac becomes a staple in conversations, and a source of elation or despair, depending on its snow predictions for the upcoming season.
November didn’t get off to a roaring start in Colorado. While there was a picturesque dusting on the Rocky Mountains from previous snow, it wasn’t enough to give people visions of powder days in the immediate future. Resorts have been making snow, and there will be plenty of runs open to get some nice early season cruising in, but no one had expectations of needing their powder skis on opening day. After this most recent storm, however, attitudes have changed a bit. The excitement in the air is palpable, as snow reports get totaled, and the realization sinks in that it is about time to start bringing out the equipment and planning weekends around weather systems. Resorts in Colorado received up to 13 inches of snow in this last storm, and it is officially time to get stoked.
Winter is coming. And so are the powder days.
