First winter visit to Jackson was 12/27/07 and we had the best of times. We expected thin cover and a partially open resort. We found fresh snow (and it snowed all day) almost 100% open terrain and not many skiers. The whole day could best be described as an unexpected delight. I will definately return. The only bad experience was in Jackson with the ski shop were we bought new tele skis. Staff made us feel that we were an inconvenience and the manager made me feel even less appreciated. Had the skis not been a birthday gift for my son and a rare ski I would have happily taken my business elsewhere. I will not shop there ever again. And will continue to share this bad experience.
