Wayfarer travel TV exclusive: ultimate guide to the legendary Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming

by James Wilkinson

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming is high on the list of destinations for skiers and boarders each season thanks to its legendary cable cars, powder filled runs, luxurious hotels and the stunning greater ecosystems of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

This magical destination in Wyoming, also known for its cowboy culture, has some of the best winter and summer mountain activities in America, from legendary ski runs to epic mountain biking and once you’ve slid through powder just the once, you’ll want to be back on the hill every year.

When we say epic, we mean epic. This past season, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort recorded 595 inches of snow, making it the snowiest, deepest ever recorded and one of the highest totals for an American ski field of all time.

That meant long, powder-filled days on the mountain, followed by après at its best with drinks and stylish rooms at the luxurious ski-in, ski-out Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole, as well as across Teton Village’s thriving culinary scene.

The resort is now readying for its 58th season this coming northern winter and to find out what’s hot, new and happening, including Thunder, the latest chair to grace the mountain, Wayfarer Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Vice President, Andrew Way in Teton Village, Wyoming (in the video above).
