With a vertical rise of 4,139 feet, 2,500 acres of inbounds terrain, and backcountry access, skiing Jackson Hole is an experience of a lifetime. The resort is open for the winter season from Thanksgiving through early April and is located in Teton Village.


Jackson Hole is a skier's paradise but in addition it is the gateway to three stunning natural wonders: the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park


The Bridger-Teton National Forest offers 3.4 million acres of pristine lands just to the east side of Grand Teton National Park. Known for its wild and scenic rivers, three wilderness areas (Bridger, Gros Ventre, and Teton Wilderness), winter recreation, and immense wildlife, there is never a dull moment to be found. Being one of the largest forest in the lower 48 states, it has a massive number of trail miles along with numerous developed camping opportunities that do not require any reservation.

 

Grand Teton National Park is one of the most spectacular, awe-inspiring places in America. Occupying a majority of the Jackson Hole valley, the park is home to overwhelming, massive mountains, pristine lakes and rivers, and abundant, teeming wildlife.


The Teton Range - with peaks rising as much as 7,000 feet off the valley floor - is the centerpiece of the park. Views from either of the two main roads, which run north-south through the park, are nothing short of spectacular. The highest, most prominent peak is the Grand Teton, standing at 13,770 feet. South of the Grand are the Middle Teton, South Teton, and Cloudveil Dome, among others. To the north of the Grand are Mt. Owen, Teewinot, and flat-topped Mt. Moran.


Yellowstone National Park: established in 1872, Yellowstone is the first and oldest national park in the world, covering nearly 3,500 sq. miles of northwestern Wyoming as well as parts of Idaho and Montana. Yellowstone's South Entrance is approximately 90 miles north of the town of Jackson.


An important, self-sufficient ecosystem and home to a huge variety of free-ranging wild animals - including bison, elk, wolves, moose, and bears (both black and grizzly) - Yellowstone also sits on top of an ancient supervolcano, which scientists believe last erupted about 640,000 years ago. Spewing more than 600 cubic miles of volcanic material into the air (covering most of North America in ash!), a series eruptions over the past 2 million years have created a massive caldera, or volcanic basin, measuring 34 by 44 miles across and nearly three-quarters of a mile deep. 

 

Tall, rugged mountains including the Gallatin, Absorka, Washburn and Beartooth Ranges rim the park's volcanic plateau. Yellowstone also sits on the Continental Divide, with water from its numerous lakes and springs draining towards opposite sides of the United States. As a result, the Snake River and Yellowstone River both have origins within the park; the Snake flows westward towards the Pacific Ocean, and the Yellowstone flows eastward towards the Atlantic. The various rivers in the park have carved their way through the landscape with spectacular results. Most notable is the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, which is 900 feet deep and a half-mile wide in certain spots, with cascading waterfalls and brightly colored red and yellow walls, a result of geothermal and chemical reactions to the iron in the rock.

 

With easy access to hundreds of miles of roads and even more (seemingly endless!) backcountry trails, Yellowstone is a powerful, beautiful, priceless national resource that everyone should see. It's one of the last places in the world that's truly alive. But words and descriptions only go so far - ultimately, Yellowstone begs to be experienced, explored, and discovered...
