Jackson, Wyoming attracts outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers and adventure-seekers, as well as those seeking culinary delights and upscale, unique lodging.
ABOUT THE TOWN
Jackson, Wyoming (often erroneously referred to as "Jackson Hole," the valley in which it is located) is a sophisticated, small town with many traits of city. Culturally deep, the town allows any visitor to spend a couple of days having an “urban” experience exploring dozens of art galleries, several movie screens, multiple museums, playhouses, performance theaters, world class restaurants and retail, or, within minutes from town, access some of the best outdoor experience in the world.
Few know but Jackson is a major gateway for millions of visitors to nearby Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and the National Elk Refuge. The town is also in proximate to several world-renowned ski resorts. On the southeast edge of town there is a relatively small but challenging ski-area known as Snow King, Jackson's and Wyoming’s original ski hill. It has steep vertical slopes and is night-lit; often used for training Olympic atheles.
More famous is the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, 12 miles (20 km) northwest. Opened in 1966, it has abundant steep terrain and has one of the highest vertical drops in North America, at 4,139 feet (1,262 m). Grand Targhee is about an hour away, on the west side of the Teton Range in Alta, and is known for its snow cat skiing. Opened in 1969, it is accessed through Idaho over Teton Pass. The newly renovated Anvil Hotel is a central option for accessing all of Jackson's attractions and famed ski areas.
