What has kept you coming back to Jackson Hole for over a decade?
In short; the people, the western friendliness and the ski terrain.
The locals are so genuine, community-minded and ready to host all comers. At the Town Square Inn complex, the Ski Club’s Jackson base, Clarene Law has been welcoming new guests personally to her local business since opening her family opened it in 1962. The staff are generous with their time and their local knowledge is second to none. You receive the authentic western hospitality across the all the Town Square Inn properties Cowboy Village, 49er and Elk Country, all providing affordable family and pet-friendly accommodation.
Exploring the town's boardwalks, you will come across the Wort Hotel and the Million Dollar Cowboy bar which is one of the true experiences of the Wild West historic wilderness of the trapping and ranching communities of old. For those looking for more modern entertainment, there is tubing and ice hockey to entertain après skiing on offer!
It’s easy to see why the terrain is so popular. From Corbet’s Couloir for the truly adventurous, to the steep chutes of Alta and Tower 3, to the open Rendezvous Bowl and glades of tree runs seldom found in Europe, there is something for everyone here. The vast mountain with 1261 vertical metres of powder has kept me grinning year on year, who wouldn’t want to experience that every season?
What is your favourite area on exploring on a powder day?
With so much terrain on offer, it’s difficult to pick one. The Big Red queue can be long on a powder day so to make sure we get fresh tracks I will often head to the Sleeping Indian and Moran faces for first runs then off to Teton lift and the glades. By mid-morning, the queues have normalised and if it is a true storm cycle for which Jackson Hole is renowned, I will stick the trees and gullies for improved visibility. If the skies are clearing a run-up Big Red to Rendezvous bowl is a delight. Gannet is also a favourite for wide open intermediate powder heaven. And for the more adventurous, if the Headwall has opened, a short hike unlocks less accessible terrain in Casper Bowl, a definite highlight.
