Full review

After reading many reviews, I knew I had my work cut out for me going to Jackson hole. you never know if reviewers are pulling your leg, trying to scare you or just trying to overstate the difficulty of a certain area. So i was both apprehensive and excitied before my first run. I was not disappointed in the terrain at jackson hole. The vertical from the top of the tram was outstanding. Not for the faint of heart, and you get a friendly warning before exiting the tram. "If you are not an expert consider riding the tram down". By far the most challenging and exhilerating skiing I have done in 23 years of skiing. My home base of ski areas is the Lake Tahoe area. Now Tahoe seems like childs play and I long to go back to Jackson hole!! On hill services are not quite on par with the likes of Aspen and Sun Valley. This is a true skiers mountain, people come to Jackson Hole to ski, for the sure passion of the sport. And I happily count myself amongst them.
