Jackson Hole in Wyoming should be to be at the top of your North American ski list.
Jackson Hole is known as the ‘skier’s mountain’, with over half the ski runs classified as black or double-black. But it’s not just for experts, it is also the perfect destination for a family ski holiday. While the gung-ho carvers and shredders are throwing themselves down all those famous chutes, bowls, bumps and gullies, your family will have the long, cruisy intermediate runs all to yourself. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has invested in a major way to improve the beginner and intermediate terrain and facilities.
Add a completely self-contained ski school complex, an easy-to-get-around village and some Wild West fun and critters and you can see why Jackson Hole is the ideal place to introduce kids to skiing in the American West.
