Hotels in Jackson Hole (and vicinity), Wyoming, United States of America - your base to discover the city.
Jackson Hole HotelsMarvel at wisps of cloud gathering around the shark-fin peaks of the Grand Teton Mountains, before saying a quiet prayer and launching yourself into some of the most daring ski runs in North America. Jackson Hole's massive ski areas welcome beginners and professionals alike, inviting you to wind through thick national forest, where elk, coyotes, and moose roam wild. Here in summer? Leave the skis behind and mountain bike, hike, or white water raft to your heart's content. With Yellowstone National Park also within reach, the town of Jackson - which is brimming with Old West charm - is a perfect base for taking on some of the most achingly beautiful scenery America has to offer.Things to seeWhile Snow King Mountain is a modestly sized resort, even experts will gulp while preparing to plunge down its steep trails. Conveniently located next to Jackson, the mountain is so close you can rack up a few hours on the slopes before enjoying a late breakfast downtown. Many skiers choose to head straight to the sprawling Jackson Hole Resort, however, with one goal in mind – to tackle the iconic Corbet's Couloir run. Just watching expert skiers disappearing over the edge - free falling for what feels like hours - before timing their landing on the vertical descent to perfection, will leave you shaking with a cold sweat. Labelled as 'America's scariest ski slope' by USA Today – the narrow chute leaves no room for error. Calm your heart rate by heading down the slopes to explore Jackson. Hold on tight at a traditional Wyoming rodeo show, duck for cover during a Wild West shootout, or sit inches away from the actors while absorbing an intimate production at the Playhouse saloon theatre.Hotels in Jackson HoleWhether it's a log cabin, with a roaring fire to keep the cold at bay, or a well-equipped room in resort lodging - worn out explorers will always have somewhere toasty to thaw out their toes. Five star Jackson Hole hotels and spa resorts can provide gentle massage treatments - to free glucose from tired legs – or simply offer the chance to lounge by the pool in the summer months, sipping tangy cocktails. Cheap hotels in Jackson offer all of the amenities you'd expect - think WiFi, satellite television and tea and coffee facilities – but the bleached buffalo skull wall decorations ensure they have their own unique character. Where to stayA stay in Jackson is ideal for many visitors, offering easy access to the slopes, and the creature comforts of well-stocked shops, welcoming bars and lively entertainment. Replace the calories burned during the day by sinking your teeth into devilish burgers - as thick as your arm – at one of the city's many eateries. Or, stay at nearby Wilson, where you'll wake to the smell of award-winning grilled trout and eggs. If you're here for nothing but the skiing, then stay at Teton Village, where the entirety of the Jackson Hole Resort is waiting outside your door each morning.How to get to Jackson HoleYou can fly into the Jackson Hole valley from cities right across the US, with airlines catering for the winter ski season particularly well. Pack your skis and jump aboard planes from New York, San Francisco and Chicago – big city life will soon be a distant memory as you roar down the slopes. Fearful flyers can take a bus to Jackson Hole from Idaho Falls or Salt Lake City instead. Public transport is cheap and reliable, so it's often wise to leave the car behind anyway - the heavy snowfall is great for skiing, but makes driving a challenge.
