JACKSON HOLE, WY — Nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Wyoming, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Grand Teton National Park and the town of Jackson form a majestic trio that beckons adventurers seeking unparalleled natural beauty and thrilling experiences.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, considered to be an all-season getaway, also benefits from its close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, making it a haven for nature enthusiasts.
“We are really lucky to be located next to two national parks, with the wonders of Yellowstone only a quick drive away as well,” said Eric Seymour, Director of Brand Communications and Content, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. “Jackson Hole is definitely one of the most scenic places in the world. The Tetons are awe-inspiring, with the highest peak of Grand Teton reaching a height of over 13,000 feet.”
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort captivates visitors with its extraordinary terrain and legendary snow conditions; this past season it received over 600 inches of snow. With a vertical drop of 4,139 feet, it offers a thrilling playground for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. The resort boasts state-of-the-art facilities including modern lifts, renowned ski schools, and a vibrant après-ski scene, ensuring an unforgettable winter experience.
As for what makes the resort a standout, Seymour added: “We manage capacity on the mountain through an online reservation system, which makes for a wonderful skiing experience with less crowds and easy lift lines.”
Though known for being a major winter destination, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is not limited to the winter months alone. In the summer, the resort transforms into an adventurer’s paradise. Hiking and mountain biking enthusiasts can explore a network of trails that traverse the alpine terrain, revealing breathtaking vistas at every turn. The Bridger Gondola, operating throughout the summer, allows visitors to ascend to higher elevations, where wildflowers bloom against the backdrop of the towering Tetons.
“Here at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort we have a variety of summer activities with the aerial tram, which climbs over 4,000 vertical feet from the base of the area to the top in about 10 minutes for incredible views of the Tetons. A lot of people will get to the Tetons without climbing them, right off the lift. At the top they can access great hiking and world-famous waffles,” said Seymour.
Just a short distance from the resort lies the town of Jackson, a charming western enclave that blends rugged authenticity with modern amenities. Travellers will find an array of boutique shops, art galleries, and dining establishments lining the streets of the historic town square. The famous elk antler arches stand as iconic symbols of Jackson’s character. Various cultural events and festivals are held throughout the year, such as the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival.
Beyond Jackson, Grand Teton National Park unveils a panorama of pristine lakes, cascading waterfalls, and incredible mountain peaks. The park offers endless opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, from hiking and camping, to wildlife watching and scenic boat cruises. The iconic Snake River meanders through the park, presenting visitors with the chance to partake in exhilarating rafting or peaceful float trips.

With its rustic ambiance and well-appointed and recently updated rooms, guests can expect a cozy and relaxing stay. The lodge offers amenities such as an onsite restaurant, a lively saloon, and an outdoor pool and hot tub area.
