Jackson received a perfect score in the downhill terrain category in the Rocky Mountain region. The ratings were based primarily on readers' average ranking, number of reviews, and specific comments made in OnTheSnow.com over the winter season. "More and more skiers and snowboarders are relying on the word of their peers when they make resort choices," said Mountain News President and Publisher Rob Brown, whose company publishes OnTheSnow.com. "We believe the importance of reader advisories will continue to grow each year and these annual awards provide a peek into their thinking." Reviewers were clear in their comments: "Probably the best mountain in North America for challenging downhill terrain… Great for experts and solid intermediates... Varied and ever-changing terrain insures that you won't get bored here…This place is the definition of gnarly. Super steep, super deep, super sweet…If you do want some evening excitement, The Mangy Moose is the place to be." Teton Village, Wyo., and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort rise from a great "hole," or basin, 12 miles northwest of the town of Jackson. Skiers frolic on 2,500 acres of in-bound terrain and taunt the mountain's 4,139-foot vertical (the greatest continuous rise in the U.S.). Click HERE to read the reviews.
