Default Jackson Hole

Planning a trip to Jackson Hole from Jan 4-11. Already have my flight and place to stay worked out.

Can any locals or anyone familiar with JHMR give me some tips. Any hidden gems on and off the mountain? Good powder stashes or cheap but good eats?


Also, anyone else going to be there about the same timeframe?

I did a trip there lastyear. It was incredible. Mangy moose has the best burgers and for a good price. Also the best spot for apres

Thanks for the heads up. When you were there last year did you stay in the village or in Jackson?

I'll be staying in Jackson, I imagine there's a shuttle from Jackson to the mtn hourly?

I stayed in the village. Walked to the slope. The bus to and from Jackson is every 15 min I think. Million dollar cowboy bar in Jackson is a Must go to. It's a scene to say the least. And downstairs they serve some amazing steaks

Good deal.

BTW, did you hit up Grand Targhee while you were there?

Nah I didn't . Spent the whole time at Jackson. I thought about but it was just too much to coordinate . I think its like a 2 hr drive from Jackson and we had a crew of 8 of us.

Gotcha

I had heard that when storm rolls through that Targhee tends to get more snow. So, I definitely planning on hitting it up at least once.

nahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. you heard wrong

Targhee isn't 2 hours from jackson. maybe 45-1 hour, it depends on road conditions. There is a shuttle that comes from jackson... not sure if its everyday or not, i've never looked into it. Hopefully the snow will be better this season than last. The beginning of jan was pretty horrible as far as snow quality and coverage is concered. Jackson has hidden areas everywhere. Its huge. And its extremely easy to get in over your head there.

My family is using our timeshare there this year. So, unfortuently we're stuck for the week that we have. I wished it was later bit later. But, I can't complain too much it's still Jackson Hole and worlds better than what I have access to locally. I'm hoping/praying for a better year all around the US this year. I have positive feelings about this season.

Seems like we got the same Ideas, my choices were Whitefish or Jackson Hole for my Feb. trip. I have never been but a friend went and didn't like it because there were a lot of tracks and flat areas and a little more skier friendly? Maybe they just didn't go down the right runs to avoid all that. Post up videos of you dropping in on Corbet's Couloir when you get back though.
