Upcoming Nordic Events

If you haven’t tried cross-country (nordic) skiing while in Jackson Hole you are missing out.  Jackson has a wide variety of trails that wind throughout the valley.  Whether you want to glide beneath the Tetons in Grand Teton National Park or you only have enough time for a quick spin around the high school trail you […]

20 Feet and Counting!

It’s official. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has hit 243 inches of snow and we are now over 20 feet on the season! Visitors and locals will agree, Ullr has treated us well thus far this season, and with continuing storms cycles and a plentiful amount of sleeper powder days, skiers and riders in Teton Village have been grinning from ear to ear.

Australia Day in Jackson Hole | 2015

Jackson Hole enjoys many visitors from Australia each year, with a large percentage of Aussies coming in January in line with their holiday schedules. Australia Day is celebrated annually on January 26th and to get in on the fun, we decided to celebrate Australia Day with our Aussie friends yesterday at Nick Wilson’s.

Corbet’s Couloir Is Open and Skiers are Going Huge

Anyone who has ever edged his or her tips into the gaping maw of the entrance to Corbet’s Couloir has participated in the dream. There is simply nothing like it in North American skiing. Steep, rocky and wild, Corbet’s Couloir is where skiers go to prove their mettle (or more often, to retreat in fear). […]

Dropping into the Weekend

Attitudes have definitely shifted over the past week in Teton Valley.  People are whistling, have a little more pep in their step, and are smiling.  The reason is clear–snow has thickly blanketed the mountains day after day, making for an outlandishly good time on the slopes.  If you haven’t made it out to JHMR in the last […]

Storm Dispatch: Jackson Hole’s January Cycle

January began inching along with all the powder chasers wondering where to go. Early last week a series of storms began to brew in the pacific and the results of those storms left us all in a frenzy. Here at the powder capital of the West, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, we’ve received an astonishing 5 […]

Powder 8 Local Qualifier: Lineup, Look Back and Results

Christened with a foot of  fresh snow from the past couple days,  44 skiers combining to form 22 teams, headed for the hills via an 8:24 am tram […]

Little details make the biggest vacations

2016 certainly started with a snap and pow. After a postcard-fluffy white Christmas, New Year’s week was so cold I had to fib a little to our out-of-town friends about why I wasn’t on the hill everyday: “I will ski when the mountain is not so crowded with tourists like yourself.” My cousin Nick saw […]

As of 2:00pm 1/14/16, we’ve received 11″ of new snow since midnight. And there’s only more to come. So come out to Teton Village and enjoy the snow! Forecast: […]
