Summary

When we first visited Jackson Hole in the early 1990s, you went for its gnarly mountain, shedloads of snow and big vertical – simple as that. It had few facilities at the base or on the mountain, and an antiquated lift system.
Now, Jackson has a modern (though still inadequate) cable car, two gondolas (one new this season), three fast chairs serving easy and intermediate terrain, a bunch of upscale hotels at the base, two table-service restaurants on the mountain – and many more beginners, intermediates and families around as a result. Some old hands hate the changes; we love them. Now, we get the best of both worlds – superb snowy steeps on the one hand, decent lunches and stylish lodgings on the other.
