Jackson Hole has one of the lowest base elevations of any ski resort area in the Rocky Mountains, at just 6,311 feet. Most other ski resorts in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico have base elevations between 6,900 and 9,500 feet.
On an average day at the Jackson Hole Ski Resort there are only 1,750 skiers skiing on the 2,500 acres of terrain at the ski area, offering one of the lowest skier densities (one skier per one-and-one-half acres!) of any ski resort in the country.
The Jackson Hole Ski Area has the longest continuous vertical rise of any ski area in the U.S...4,139 feet from the valley floor to the top of Rendezvous Mountain, with a 63-passenger aerial tram that transports skiers from bottom to top in 12 minutes.
Jackson Hole Resort is a unique mountain for skiing, especially when it comes to snow reporting. With 2,500 acres of some of the most diverse inbound skiing and snowboarding terrain in North America.
Average of 459"/year (38.25 feet; 1166cm; 11.6 meters) over past 10 yrs.
We currently have 160 acres of snowmaking coverage.
Average temperature is 21o Fahrenheit in the valley. Temperature inversions caused by warm air rising and cold air staying on the valley floor will raise slope temperatures by 20-40°
