Three Ski Areas to Choose From
Jackson Hole is a skier’s paradise. Legendary for consistent snowfall, vertical feet, and varied terrain, you’ll find something new to explore every day on skis here in Wyoming!
The Ranch Inn is located minutes from Snow King Mountain Resort, the local “town hill” that overlooks the town of Jackson. Snow King is quaint and family-friendly and also features night skiing, ice skating, snow tubing, and more! The terrain varies from beginner runs to steep slopes where the U.S. ski team has trained.
To experience the most world-renowned skiing in the West, head to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Access is easy via timely shuttles that leave regularly from town, or an easy 12.5 mile drive to the base. JHMR features endless terrain serviced by quad lifts, two gondolas, and the famous big red tram! Be sure to take a tram ride and try a waffle and hot coco “at the top of the world!” JHMR’s world-class ski school program offers private and group ski lessons for every age and ability level.
If you’re looking to explore another nearby resort that is low on crowds and high on untouched powder, head to Grand Targhee Resort in Alta, Wyoming, about an hour’s drive from town. This hidden gem is famous for record amounts of snowfall.
Other Winter Activities
Skiing isn’t the only way to enjoy your Wyoming winter wonderland! Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice-skating, elk refuge sleigh rides, and tours of Yellowstone National Park are among the countless winter adventures you can enjoy in Jackson Hole.
