Reviews for Jackson Hole
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
While airfare to JAC is expensive, it is one of the most gorgeous and convenient ski airports in N.America. A quick 30-45 taxi ride (all large SUVs and fixed rate) puts you in Teton Village at the base of the mountain -- STAY HERE! The village has everything you need from great rentals (TVS), shopping for what you forgot or want to replace, enough casual, but fine dining to satisfy you for a week, all within a 5-7 minute walk from wherever you're staying. Get up the next morning and prepare for an adventure. JH is a large, diverse, fun mountain full of potential to explore. Regardless of your group's ability, make sure to get everyone up the Tram to experience the view and the waffles! Those who aren't comfortable skiing black, can ride back down.
JH is a FANTASTIC mountain for those strong intermediate skiers looking to find the next level and everyone above. Great choices, great views, typically great snow, and a truly unique vibe makes JH my #1 all-things-considered destination.

Jackson Hole is my favorite resort. Best of the
Best for advanced and expert terrain. There is so much in-bounds terrain that rides like beyond the gate side country. The Hobacks are just unbelievable when conditions are good. The aesthetics of Jackson are as good as you will find anywhere. Teton village is nice and has several restaurants available, so trips to town are not a necessity. As for the downsides…although Jackson’s ski school is world renowned, JHMR is not the best place for beginners or even low intermediates. There is really only one area containing relatively short green runs at the very bottom of the mountain, and even the mildest blue runs are fairly steep compared to other NA resorts. Jackson is also relatively expensive. One of the biggest difficulties is getting there, as flying into Jackson is by far the best option, and it is for obvious reasons much pricier than SLC or DEN, and will likely require connecting flights. ...

Loved our trip there. Snow was amazing and I skied all over the mountain and wasn’t bored. Even got off piste in some fresh snows two days after a storm. My husband is an intermediate skier and he loves the terrain for his level. Wish there were a few more apres and other restaurant options.... Full Review
Best secluded Scenic family park setting village experience. Don't forget the Mangy Moose for a post day on the snow tottie... Full Review
such an amazing experience all around! I cant say enough great things about the tetons. I would suggest staying in the village or right next to it for a nice morning walk to the slopes. So much fun and opportunity to progress - people say it is not a beginner mountain but I think if you have a good base (some experience or skate / surf) you will be good to go on this mountain as a “beginner”...

Jackson Hole has always been one of my favorite ski destinations, but I have to say I was extremely disappointed this time around. The staff was rude and mean in some cases. I understand we all are dealing with COVID and things are difficult for all, but some of the actions I witnessed and experienced by staff was just plain wrong. I visited Steamboat, Copper, Snowshoe and Aspen all this year and customer service was so much better. Why can all those resorts able to handle COVID and still be welcoming and friendly and Jackson can't is beyond me. I actually had ski school instructor smack my snowboard with his pole and told to shut the hell up. If he wanted me to be quiet he could have been polite. The rudeness of the staff at the resort was the talk of the town this week. I am not sure if I will ever be back which is sad. I love Jackson.. and will be back in the summer, but as for the ski resort..not sure Special thanks to Aspen who is always a first class ski resort who always makes my family feel welcome. Jackson Hole Resport....shame on you... Full Review
Jackson Hole is the best ski mountain in North American by far as I have been to all of the major resorts and none of them compare. There are so many chutes and off-piste opportunities on this mountain and, of course, the best backcountry skiing anywhere. If you love to ski Jackson Hole is the best.... Full Review
If you like lines, poor and slow access to the good terrain, short lifts and runs, too many beginners, even longer lines with the droves of priory ski sports school clogging everything. One word describes this resort: overated. If you are serious skier, just go over the pass or up into Montana. ... Full Review
I love Jackson Hole. Incredible terrain, snow, and variety. Sadly, they are only doing a superficial job at best of getting people to wear masks. They need a staff member at each line (and not just at the front of the line) enforcing people to wear masks... Full Review
This was our first time in JH. Loved the Teton village, very good restaurants, and easy to get off on the lifts. We are 70 and pretty good skiers but the facts are there are just limited intermediate runs on the mountain. Unlike Vail or Beaver Creek, much of the face mountain is expert terrain. Folds seem to like it that way but having visited, we will not return. Not a bad trip but unless you are really a good skier don't waste your time... Full Review
