Clearly, the biggest highlight for me was the amazing skiing and snowboarding. I had heard that Jackson Hole had some challenging (to say the least) slopes, but that doesn’t do it justice. I was like a little kid exploring an amazing number of incredible trails, bowls, terrain parks, and off-trail slopes.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is a serious mountain. I have never seen more difficult slopes. Take the typical difficulty ratings (i.e. green, blue, black, diamond, etc.) and knock everything up a notch (or two) versus what you are used to. I went down some blue-rated slopes that I couldn't believe weren't some type of black diamond. I definitely took some spills due to the difficulty and the amazing amount of powder.
