Full review

The mighty Jackson Hole has lost its way and is a mess. The crowds began with the acceptance of the mountain collective pass and exponentially exploded with the Ikon pass. Powder days are unskiable with every bro from salt lake city showing up on top of eager locals, 400 of whom are sitting at the summit via early trams. Major lines are skiied out instantly. Closed areas are widely poached. Lifts are inadequate to service the elite upper mountain terrain with these crowds. Parking lots and access roads do not accomodate the traffic that has developed. Throw this bunch in with a bunch of first time ikon passholders and aspiring intermediates, add a large portion of outright hostile locals who feel they are being invaded and you get a largely negative vibe. The only time it is reasonable is when the conditions are “ordinary”. Even then your family is seriously at risk of being mowed over by snowboarding wannabees coming at you from every direction recklessly and carelessly. Currently, this resort is an anarchic, adolescent mess. Look elsewhere.
