Teton Village/Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Shannon Schiner on December 23, 2001

Have you ever wondered what it is like to ski with some of the world's best? Ski at Teton Village and you are sure to find several of them. The mountain is steep and has over 4,000 vertical feet. Although it is not for the faint of heart, TV is truly the finest resort in the USA for those who have a passion for steeps.

The mountain can be warm at the bottom and substantially cooler at the top, so dress in several easy layers.

Mornings tend to be warmer on Apres Vous (the intermediate/beginner side of the mountain), but will get very cold in the afternoons. Because of the high elevation and direct exposure it is important to wear sunscreen (and keep layering it on throughout the day).

If you want to learn your way around the mountain take a lesson, the ski school has some of the finest instructors available...upper level skiers should request Renny Burke, ladies should request his wife Tracey Burke...and intermediates and children should definitely request Beau. You will undoubtedly improve your skiing as well as learn about some of the mountains hidden treasures.

After skiing hit the Mangy Moose for some great stories and a totally unique bar experience. It is also a good place to meet locals and find out what is happening around town.
