Winter Ski Resorts
One of the country’s most famous winter ski resorts is located in western Wyoming, just outside the authentically western town of Jackson Hole, in Teton Village. Although officially on the map as Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, it’s more often than not simply referred to as “The Big One.” Jackson is a winter ski resort on steroids. That’s the most precise way to describe the Northern Rockies most notorious “place to enjoy” while staying Idaho or Wyoming.
It seems everything is just bigger at this Yellowstone-Teton area resort. Winter ski and snowboard diehards, especially enthusiastic males between the ages of 18 and 45, flock to Jackson’s slopes at the first hint of winter. Resort skiing at its best can be found at Jackson Hole.
Teton Springs Winter Ski Resorts Packages and Lodging
Jackson is one of the only winter ski resorts that can truly boast one of the top vertical drops in the United States. More bang for your buck that way. There’s 4,139 feet of both untamed and more user-friendly intermediate runs and every morsel of terrain is more than worthy for skiing in the winter. Resort in-bounds skiing delivers over 2,500 acres of steep and deep so there’s plenty of room to spread out at this lush landscape. Skiing stories, some hair raising, also abound from Jackson’s vast backcountry world. They open the boundary gates at this beautiful mountain. Winter’s diehard skiers and snowboarders are free to drop into the great abyss of an uncontrolled and wild off piste world at this most grand spot to have some winter fun. Idaho resorts like Teton Springs offer many fun times for the entire family.
Despite the rugged reputation of Jackson Hole, there’s no need to rough it at winter ski resorts these days. You can also choose a different experience than the one you’ll find at most places in the area. Winter destination like Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, a mere 25 minute drive to Jackson Hole, is a great example of a different type of resort, somewhere to be pampered. It’s not situated at the base of the mountain but offers in spades what many visitors appreciate, another kind of winter skiing. Hidden spots such as Teton Springs offer a terrific cross-country groomed track just steps from the Lodge and also wide open terrain across their vast Headwaters Golf Course. Both perfect for a brisk morning sled or ski. Winter accommodations have never looked so good!
