Jackson Hole, Wyoming – February 2018

The Mountain: Legendary. What can you say about Jackson Hole? Consistently ranked as one of the best ski resorts in N. America, it’s on every avid skier’s ‘go to’ bucket list—or their ‘I can’t wait-to-return’ ski destinations. Located in Teton Village adjacent to the Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole is home to some 2,500 acres of skiable terrain. While legendary for its steep terrain, deep dry powder and gorgeous scenery, less well known is its extensive intermediate terrain, great beginner area. The terrain is 9% Beginner, 34% Intermediate, 41% Advanced and 17% Expert. Jackson enjoys reliable annual snowfall averaging 450 inches and boasts a vertical drop 4.100’.
We will spend a day skiing at Grand Targhee, known for its prodigious powder, snowfall, and terrain options for every ability. The hallmark experience at Targhee is the snowcat adventure at its 600 acre powder reserve.

Accommodation

The Alpenhof Lodge is a ski-in/ski-out Bavarian gem in the heart of Teton Village. The Alpenhof has the coveted location 50 feet from the Aerial Tram so you can make ‘first tracks’ in the morning and is close to the Bridger Gondola. On-site amenities include, outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, massage, ski valet, restaurant, bar, in-house ski shop, guest laundry and complementary internet.
