Skiing and Snowboarding
Are you searching for an epic winter wonderland for your next skiing or snowboarding adventure? Look no further than Jackson Hole, Wyoming, situated on the edge of the Grand Teton Mountain Range. In addition to being famous for its amazing scenery, Jackson is well known as home to some of the most impressive mountain resorts and pristine snow in the world.
We’re lucky enough to be situated near three excellent ski areas: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King Ski Area and the Grand Targhee Resort. Each has its own distinct feel, terrain and amenities. Whether you’re traveling here alone or with friends or family, we can set you up with the options that will make your vacation one to remember.
Jackson Hole Mountain is 2,500 acres of snowy heaven and is revered by locals and visitors alike for its steep runs, deep powder, abundant backcountry, consistent fall line and challenging terrain parks. The resort offers a full range of services including children’s programs, sports school, adult camps and group activities. The Rusty Parrot offers ski packages that include lift tickets at the resort. They are on our website under Packages, Winter.
Snow King Ski Area, Jackson’s original ski paradise, was established in 1939 and features 400 acres of prime winter real estate – and 110 of those acres are available after the sun goes down! The best part is that it’s located only 6 blocks from downtown Jackson.
Grand Targhee Resort, nested on the western side of the Tetons, is blessed with approximately 500 inches of snow per year and encompasses almost 2,000 acres. Situated 45 miles from Jackson, it’s the farthest resort from town, but the incredible powder and vastness of the area makes it well worth the drive. Regularly scheduled bus service is available.
Want to take a day off from the groomed runs? The Grand Tetons are an extremely desirable destination for heli-skiing. Book a guide for up to 5 people and hitch a helicopter ride to places that haven’t seen a carved track for months. Perfect for people who want to get away from the crowds and enjoy some peace and solitude.
No matter your preference, the Jackson, Wyoming area is a ski destination that will give you memories to last a lifetime. Come stay at the Rusty Parrot this winter and sample a bit of the good life.
