Unlike many ski towns, Jackson Hole is a rare gem that has managed to keep its original charm and unique personality. With the very lucky few who call this place “home,” the focus has been on ensuring that things stay authentic, and that it doesn’t turn into just another booming ski town.
And the town has been successful in maintaining that.
While visitations to Jackson Hole certainly are booming, and this destination’s popularity is on a constant uprise, you’ll love what you find here, and how genuine your trip into the mountains feels.
The mix of modern and chic resorts with the classic beauty of Jackson Hole provides the opportunity to get that luxurious vacation you’re after, with just the right amount of authentic Wild West charm mixed in.
Below are our top 5 reasons why Jackson Hole should jump to the top of your list of getaway destinations.
1. There are 290+ inches of annual snowfall.
With the highest reports of snowfall in the entire West this season, Jackson Hole is where you want to go to really get your ski on.
2. There are hot tubs with epic views.
The rooftop hot tub at Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa’s SpaTerre and the Chill Spa at Hotel Terra Jackson Hole both have views that cannot be beat.
After a day on the slopes, there is no better way to relax your muscles and your mind than in a hot tub overlooking Jackson Hole. Panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains, stars aplenty, and the sheer beauty of nature in its glory will take your breath away.
3. It’s all about the après ski.
While skiing is fabulous, après ski is where it’s at. Drinks seem to taste even better after a long day on the slopes, and Jackson Hole has the perfect spots to celebrate your day of hard work.
Head to one of the original après ski spots in Jackson hole, The Mangy Moose, or opt for a drink and some appetizers at Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa’s award-winning Spur Restaurant & Bar. According to SKI Magazine, Spur is not just a place to après ski in Jackson Hole, but the place.
#4. It’s not just for skiers.
Is skiing not your thing? No problem. In Jackson Hole, there is much more than skiing going on. Take a walk on the wild side during a wildlife safari in Grand Teton or Yellowstone National Park with Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa and Hotel Terra Jackson Hole’s in-house naturalist, Kurt Johnson.
Or, hop on a snowmobile to catch the scenery, pop on some snowshoes, lace up your ice skates, hurl down a snowy hill on an inner tube, or even try your hand at dog sledding and winter biking.
