Yes, the family-owned Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) has a reputation as a place for extreme skiers, but over the last decade, it has put some serious time and money into becoming more family-friendly. Don't worry -- all the extreme terrain and backcountry access is still here – they are just tempered by more intermediate runs and faster lifts servicing beginner and intermediate terrain. Not that the crowds have caught on. JHMR has yet to hit 500,000 skier days in a season.
The base area and on-mountain amenities have seen major improvements too. A decade ago, there was nothing fancy about Teton Village, the alpine-style hamlet at the base of JHMR. Today there is the world’s first slopeside Four Seasons, fine dining, a LEED-certified luxury boutique hotel, ski shops carrying everything from Bogner to The North Face and spas with treatments rooms kept cozy by private fireplaces.
Know that JHMR is 12 miles from the actual town of Jackson, which is the largest town in the 42-mile long valley that is Jackson Hole. Skiers stay in both Teton Village and Jackson; there’s more shopping and restaurants in Jackson, but the skiing is closer when you stay in the former. It’s up to you to decide.
