Located in Teton Village, Jackson Hole, Wyoming nicknamed "The Big One" is located in a valley (6,200 elevation) that runs from north to south along the Snake River, between the Teton Mountains to the west, and the Gros Ventre Mountains to the east. It's just a 30-minute drive from Jackson Hole Airport that sits within Grand Teton National Park. It has long been known as an Expert's paradise, but in recent years the resort has been making improvements to give the mountain a broader appeal. Extensive investments in recent years with new lifts, snow-making, grooming, visitor services, and trail expansions have created a new mountain experience for a broad variety of guests.

Last year they added Piste Mountain Bistro, which is an on-the-hill eats , featuring grass-fed burgers and lamb loin. They also added a second gondola last year to relieve congestion.
In addition to steep chutes, wide-open powder fields, and some of the most famous backcountry skiing in the United States (Cody Peak, Cody Bowl), Jackson Hole also offers a number of exceptionally wide groomers, and a cat track network that allows strong intermediates to see much of the mountain. Intermediates will find a wealth of blue terrain accessed by the Bridger Gondola, Casper quad lift, the Marmot lift, and the Apres Vous Quad lift. For the snowboarder try out "Dicks' Ditch - one of the longest run bank slalom in snowboarding. Also, skiers/boarders check out the four "Burton Stash Parks" scattered all over the mountain mixing up natural terrain features, local wood and all of the creative elements the mountain has to offer.
