With 2,500 acres of terrain, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is perfect for skiers and snowboarders who like a challenge. The mountain offers 133 trails, including 50% expert-rated, 40% intermediate, and 10% beginner. Backcountry riding is also popular. Be sure to view a trail map before heading out.

Jackson Hole is famous for its natural playground of terrain. The resort complements those features with two terrain parks, four Burton Stash parks, and a halfpipe.
