The untamed wilderness of the Teton Mountain Range in Wyoming and its handful of ski resorts is one of the most popular ski and snowboard destinations in the world. The crown jewel of Wyoming skiing and snowboarding is Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, a skiing and snowboarding Mecca, thanks to its 2,500 acres of challenging in-bounds terrain and open backcountry gate system that provides access to over 3000 acres of skiable terrain. On the western slope of the Tetons, skiers and riders will find Grand Targhee Resort, where lift lines are non-existent and light Wyoming powder snow is abundant.
Jackson Hole, WY
Closest Airport: JAC, 13 miles. Jackson Hole’s reputation for steep and deep precedes it, eh? Yes, there’s plenty of powder and pitches, but here’s a little known fact: Beginner and intermediate trails make up half of our terrain, meaning that our non-advanced/expert terrain acreage – 1250 acres – is larger than many ski resorts' total terrain.
There is Jackson Hole, and then there’s everyone else claims Ski Mag. First, terrain. No. 1 in Challenge, The Big One boasts the longest continuous vert in the U.S., with lines so gnarly (Alta Zero, Unskiable, Expert Chutes) they pucker your gut from the lift. But JH is also tops in Terrain Variety too, for its rolling groomers (Werner and Grand) and adventurous kids’ Stash Parks. Don’t forget about the Character—a real town with deep Western roots.
Grand Targhee, WY
Closest Airport: JAC, 54 miles. Grand Targhee Resort located in Alta, Wyoming within the Caribou-Targhee National forest is notoriously known for having deep powder combined with excellent terrain options. Located near the border of Idaho and Wyoming, Grand Targhee is situated on the west side of the grand Tetons and is consistently hit by pacific-born storms that stack up against the Tetons.
The ski area is home to an excellent trail system that has terrain options for all abilities. The resort provides guests with spectacular scenery combined with great snow and a laid back atmosphere. The ski area is a paradise for powder lovers and is full of great diverse and fun terrain.
