ABOUT JACKSON HOLE

Jackson Hole is a great little wild west town, located in Wyoming. The town of Jackson has a good range of shopping and restaurants. The ski area at Teton Village is 12 miles northwest of the town of Jackson Hole and connected to Jackson town by regular shuttle. Lodging options are available in both Jackson town and at Teton Village, the latter being the best option if you want ski-in/ski-out accommodation.

Jackson Hole Airport has flights from various gateway cities in the USA. In winter, Jackson Hole offers great value, as winter is actually low season, with most visitors coming in summer to visit Yellowstone Park. In winter we can organise day tours to the park from Jackson, as well as dogsledding tours and hot air ballooning, so there is no shortage of activities outside of the skiing.

A popular option is a twin centre ski holiday with Jackson Hole and Park City/ Snowbird in Utah - a 5 hour drive from Jackson. Two great ski areas to visit in the western USA.
