Jackson Hole opens today, Nov. 24th as scheduled. We visited this WY resort last winter to experience the 4,139 continuous vertical feet and 2500 acres (plus endless backcountry terrain) that they’re famous for. In fact, this year, Ski Magazine readers voted it #1 in three categories: Overall Satisfaction, Character and the Most Challenging Terrain. It was also voted the #6 overall resort in North America, its highest ranking ever. If there were a category for most friendly ski town, this would get our vote. We love this resort and its neighboring National Parks of Yellowstone and Grand Teton -truly spectacular! This season, skiers and riders will have a new, high speed, 4-passenger detachable chair at mid mountain, reducing the ride time to 3.5 minutes from 10 on the original lift. Along with the new lift, the Casper intermediate trail network has received extensive summer grooming to widen and improve two major runs, Wide Open and Lift Line (now renamed Sundog). We can’t wait to check it out on our next trip. In the meantime, do a few laps for us. Have fun out there.
Below is a short video of our day out w/ Anna Cole and Alexandra Meiners, showing us around their amazing playground.
