Jackson HoleUnited States
In the western region of the USA, Jackson Hole has breathtaking slopes, unique natural landscapes, top hotels, all in a city with an Old West vibe and a rising food scene.
Jackson Hole’s remote location, located in the state of Wyoming, is offset by a number of qualities that make it one of the most exciting ski destinations in the country. Nature puts on a show there: between canyons, valleys, forests, snowy peaks and abundant wildlife, the resort is nestled in Grand Teton National Park and is close to other nature reserves such as the famous Yellowstone, which are destinations for ATV tours and snowmobiles. With more than 1000 hectares of skiable area spread over two mountains, Jackson Hole is known for favoring more experienced skiers – one of the most challenging stretches in the world, called Corbet’s Couloir, is there. But it’s also democratic: families with children and beginners are fans of areas like Solitude Station, which has a good ski school and easy slopes. The resort is served by the friendly Teton Village, at the base of the mountain, and by the city of Jackson, 20 km away, which mixes establishments with a Wild West vibe that have been there for decades with lots of trendy shops, cafes and restaurants.
