Jackson Hole, Ski Legend Karen Anderson, Senior Ski Specialist

"There’s an authenticity about Jackson Hole that is truly unique. You can ski some of the world’s best, and most scenic, terrain by day, and line dance with cowboys at night! "

Jackson Hole Ski Holidays

Nestled amongst Wyoming’s dramatic Teton Mountain range sits a ski resort like no other. With its irresistible blend of authentic cowboy culture, spectacular big mountain terrain and wild Western spirit, Jackson Hole has grown from little-known cult hero into one of the USA’s top ski destinations.

Explore the slopes

Prepare to be spoilt for choice – Jackson Hole boasts an epic 2,500 acres of awesome ski terrain spread across two mountains: Rendezvous and Après Vous. That’s 133 runs over an impressive 4,139 foot vertical drop, not to mention another 3,000 acres of beautiful backcountry powder terrain. Jackson Hole is best suited to intermediate and expert skiers and riders, with the vast majority of runs requiring some experience. Rendezvous Mountain is where you’ll find the most exhilarating terrain. Expect steep chutes, snowy glades, thrilling fall-line trails and plenty of opportunity to test your skills – and your nerve.

With an incredible 75 black or double black diamond runs to choose from, Jackson Hole is a legendary playground for expert skiers and riders. Après Vous has more accessible slopes, with some gorgeous wide open groomers and pretty, tree-lined runs just made for cruising. Intermediates can happily build up their confidence while soaking up the stunning scenery.

Enjoy the resort

Resort life in Jackson Hole takes place in two separate bases. Located at the foot of the ski area, Teton Village is a charming purpose-built mountain resort with some superb luxury hotels. Travel just 12 miles down the road and you’ll hit the lively cowboy town of Jackson, home to bags of authentic Western heritage and some pretty raucous après-ski.

With a wealth of activities to enjoy, Jackson Hole is never dull. Explore the pristine backcountry terrain with an unforgettable heli or cat-skiing experience, a relaxed snowshoe hike or a luxurious sleigh ride. You’ll find a good choice of restaurants, shops and bars in both bases, but Jackson town is undoubtedly the livelier resort. Expect huge fun after the sun goes down, as locals and visitors meet and mingle for drinks, dancing and live music in the town’s good-time bars and saloons.

Where to stay

We feature a range of accommodation in both Jackson Hole bases. Modern Teton Village offers the best access to the slopes, while nearby Jackson is where you’ll find that lively cowboy atmosphere and nightlife. If it’s a full-service luxury experience you want, you’ll find several world-class slopeside hotels in Teton Village. Enjoy five-star service, exquisite rooms and suites, indulgent amenities from alpine spas to ski valets, and unrivalled access to the mountain.

Our properties in Jackson town tend to be smaller boutique hotels and inns, offering outstanding value for money and that authentic ‘Western’ experience. Ideal if you love the après just as much as the skiing.    

Getting to Jackson Hole

Ski Independence offer a choice of airlines flying from London into Jackson Hole and we provide complete flexibility to choose the day of departure, holiday duration, choice of airline and cabin type. We have the freedom to build you the perfect holiday itinerary around the best flight options that suit you, and not around a product we’re committed to sell.

All of our holidays to Jackson Hole include a shared shuttle transfer from Jackson Hole airport, but the area is perhaps best explored with the flexibility of a self-drive car, SUV or minivan. We offer 'Gold' option car rental which includes all the mandatory taxes & fees, extra drive fees, fuel and ski rack. We can also offer vehicles with SatNav.

Jackson Hole offers childcare from 6 months to 2 years at the Wrangler Daycare in The Kids Ranch. The Kids Ranch is a licensed child care facility located at the base of the mountain. The nurturing staff will engage your child with a variety of age appropriate activities both indoors and outdoors. Parents should provide nappies, formula, a change of clothes, and any food for special dietary needs. Lunch is provided for full day programmes.

In addition to the Wrangler Daycare, there are private companies in Jackson Hole which provide babysitting.

Kids' Night Out

Kids, are you bored hanging out with your parents? Parents, would you like a night out on the town? If so, Kids' Night Out might be the answer for you! On offer are evening activities and dinner for children ages 3 to 14 in a supervised environment that promotes peer interaction and pure fun. Evening activities include indoor games, movies, and sledding.

Whilst we do not book the childcare directly for clients, we are very happy to provide the relevant information.
