Jackson Hole, Wy

Jackson Hole (Wyoming) is situated southwest of Yellowstone National Park. The ski area is in Teton Village, 20 minutes away from down town Jackson, WY. Teton village is also known as Jackson Hole ski resort, wherre you find the Four Seasons hotel/ resort, the Alphenhof and Terra.

 

Ski Lift

Ski lift prices are $121 for a full day. Being ther March 21, 2015, was not the best deal: after I paid $121 at the first lift, the arial gondola, the lady mentions directly that the snow is horrible and that it is only for advanced skiers. Note: not good for advanced skiers too.

Jackson Hole is a bit tougher to get to - less direct flights than other ski resorts - which keeps it a bit special.

Skiing at Snow King Mountain is just $47 a day. Snow King Mountain is the mountain directly next to Jackson village, expect mostly steep declines, not a huge mountain.
