Downhill Skiing

Jackson Hole offers three ski areas. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, located 11 miles from the town of Jackson in Teton Village, boasts one of the longest, steepest continuous vertical drops of any ski area in North America.

You can ski 4,139 leg-burning, vertical feet from 10,450 feet down to 6,311 feet. JHMR receives an average of 360 inches of snowfall per year and gets people out on the hill with eight chairlifts, a gondola and the famous aerial tram.

On the western slope of the Tetons, about 75 minutes by car from Jackson, Grand Targhee Resort receives even more snow than Jackson Hole. Grand Targhee is routinely ranked among the top 3 resorts in North America in terms of snow quality and quantity. They offer snowcat skiing as well as over 2,000 acres of lift served terrain with over 400 acres groomed daily.

Snow King Mountain, known as the town hill, offers night skiing, a terrain park, and a tubing park all on one very skiable, consistent pitch. Snow King is the ski area you see while standing in Town Square or strolling along the boardwalks of Jackson.

HMR is SKI Magazine's #1 Resort

SKI Magazine’s survey, now in its 26th year, provides an annual snapshot of the Top 50 resorts in North America. Readers rank resorts in 20 different categories from snow and lifts, to dining and service. Jackson Hole earned the top spot this year, as well as Top 10 rankings in a wide range of areas, from Challenge and Character (both # 1’s) to Lodging (# 3) and Service (# 7). For a mountain never known for extensive grooming until the recent “All New All Blue” initiatives, Jackson Hole ranked #19 in grooming this year. “Jackson Hole has done as good of a job as any resort in recent memory of expanding its appeal to a wider audience, now offering a remarkable experience to skiers of all talents and tastes,” Greg Ditrinco, Editor of SKI Magazine says.
