Jackson Hole. The name, the scenery, the tram, the backcountry, these iconic components make it one of the best known ski resorts in the world. With nearly 500 inches of annual snowfall and half its inbounds terrain considered “expert,” Jackson has proven itself as a frequent destination and home for many of the world’s best winter athletes.
And if your aim is to test the industry’s best equipment, then you might as well do it in some of the most demanding terrain around. And now, thanks to Jackson Hole’s new mountain bike park, Jackson is one of BLISTER’s year-round testing grounds. With more than four thousand feet of vertical to be skied across two peaks, and a bike park that is being built up by the day, Jackson offers more than enough terrain to take any piece of gear to its limit.
Finally, Jackson Hole’s steeps and cliffs are so famous, it’s easy to turn the place into a caricature. Jackson Hole isn’t only for skiers and riders looking to scare themselves silly, there are plenty of beginner and intermediate runs for people looking just to enjoy a gorgeous day in some of the most beautiful mountains in the world.
Ask anyone who has been to Jackson Hole, and they’ll probably agree, nothing beats skiing in the Tetons.
Go see for yourself.
