IS IT REALLY THE WILD WEST?
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is a totally unique destination. Where else can you take a sleigh ride through 10,000 wintering elk, view herds of bison and be asked to ski defensively to avoid moose on the cat-tracks? Or take in the annual Cowboy Ski Challenge where skiers are pulled over 40 mph behind horses over jumps and other obstacles then kick back and drink Moose Drool in the famous Mangy Moose apres-ski hang out. Two National Parks consider JHMR neighbors, statistics show a skier an acre (still!) on the slopes, and powder can be had in the backcountry almost the entire season. There is harmony to be found ...Ski fanatics staying at the slopeside Hostel X hang with the small spa crowd and never a cross word is heard between rider and skier, but if you are looking for pure unadulturated skiing and riding on the wildest mountain in the lower 48, Jackson Hole cannot be touched...

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort OPENS New Terrain
For the first time in the history of the Resort, JHMR will open the Crags terrain to the public. Previously a permanently closed inbounds area, this provides approximately 200 acres and 1000 vertical feet of new terrain. Bowls, chutes and tree skiing all accessible via the Headwall "Stairway to Heaven" or via a more gradual hike from the top of Apres Vous. The Crags will be snow controlled and have a similar opening schedule as Casper Bowl and the Headwall based on weather conditions. "This terrain will undoubtedly become a new "must do" at Jackson and we can't wait to get it open" commented Jerry Blann, JHMR President. The resort trail map will reflect the new boundaries and also include newly named runs.
