I have been going to Jackson since I was 4 so I have been pretty spoiled. Jackson Hole is the premiere ski destination in America and one of the best in the world. I have been to other reosrts such as Lake Louise, Crested Butte, Timber Ridge, and Nubs Knob. None of which compare to Jackson Hole's scope. The mountain is covered head to toe with advanced and beginner runs making it a perfect place for any level of skier. If your a powder and tree lover then check out Moran Woods off the Casper Lift at about Mid-Mountain. Its my favorite!
Thanks to fresh snow coming in 3 or 4 times a week the runs won't become to cut up. Occasionaly an all out blizzard might hit the valley, which I found out about last year when avalanches closed most of the mountain for almost 2 days. That and snobby tourists are the only negatives in choosing to visit Jackson, but you will find the same things at any other great ski resort.
If your looking for beauty and a great meal then Jackson is also for you. Try driving north from Jackson and eating at Dornans in Moose. The food is great, but the view is better. You will be entertained by the second best view of the Grand Teton. The best view is from the top, haha.
Enjoy the best the west has to offer!
