Jackson Hole general information

Jackson Hole general information


Given the remote location of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the easiest way to get here is by air to Jackson Hole Airport, located 11kms from Jackson city inside the Grand Teton National Park. Even so, visitors from Europe and the UK will need to make at least one change of plane as the small facility only supports a few domestic flights. American, Delta, Frontier and United’s subsidiaries United Express and Skywest run mostly seasonal routes to Chicago, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Denver and Los Angeles, giving international travellers a choice of route. The resort is a weather dependent hour’s journey from the airport by bus, shuttle or self-drive.

Arriving by road from elsewhere in the US involves an incredibly scenic journey taking around five hours. State highway 91 via Pocatello and Idaho Falls winds through some of the most spectacular and remote countryside in the US, ending up beyond Jackson Hole in the magnificent volcanic wilderness of Yellowstone National Park.

Lift passes for either full-day or afternoon skiing can be booked in advance online, ordered as part of a package deal or bought on arrival. Prices are dependent on the season; with end of December through to the end of March being the most expensive, although discounts for juniors, seniors and groups are offered. Multi-day passes between two and 20 days trim the cost slightly, with discounts as above, and are the best way to cut the cost of a longer skiing holiday.
