Jackson Hole is rugged. It’s extreme. It’s the Wild West meets the X Games.
In many ways, Jackson Hole offers visitors an untainted experience with nature but still has plenty of luxury accommodations to make you feel pampered and relaxed during your stay.
Similar to other resort towns, the time of year that you visit depends vastly on your interests. Jackson Hole is known for it’s snow sports during winter (i.e.: skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, dog sledding). During the summer, hiking, rock climbing, fishing and cycling are widely popular.
The Jackson Hole Airport is located about 10 miles from the town of Jackson and about 30 miles from the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The airport offers nonstop service from about a dozen airports nationwide. It is a small airport located just 2 miles from the base of the Grand Tetons, which means it probably has one of the best views of any airport in the country. The staff and airport ambassadors are friendly and welcoming, even offering complimentary mimosas and orange juice when you land. How cool is that?!
We’ve visited this wonderful Wyoming town during both summer and winter, and have the ultimate guide for families looking to visit Jackson.
