Occupying a large chunk of Teton Village in the northwest corner of the valley, the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is a vacation destination unto itself. The primary resort area in the valley, this property boasts several hotels and timeshares and an adventure park, not to mention a variety of dining options on top and below the mountain. However, the main reason people visit the resort is to take advantage of the skiing; located at the base of Rendezvous Mountain, the resort offers prime access to 2,500 acres of ski runs and 4,139 feet of vertical drop. And with over 400 inches of snowfall annually, it's no wonder why the area is considered to be one of the best ski resorts in the country.
Skiing isn't the only activity here. During the summertime, the resort offers visitors numerous opportunities to hike and mountain bike as well as paraglide. Recent visitors also said that a ride on the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram is a must, no matter the season. The tram runs to the top of Rendezvous Mountain, allowing for breathtaking views of the Teton Mountains. If heights aren't your thing, don't fret. Travelers said there are so many activities to do there you'll likely never be bored. Some suggested arriving at the village as early as possible, as you'll probably end up staying until closing time.
The lifts are open every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. between late November and early April. Although you don't have to pay to explore the resort, lift tickets will cost you. Full-day adult passes range from $83 to $121, depending on the time of year. Keep in mind: You'll save on admission by purchasing your tickets online in advance. The Jackson Hole Aerial Tram is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and tickets cost $37 for adults and $17 for juniors ages 6 to 17. You can save $5 on each tram ticket by purchasing online.
