Description

Jackson Hole is renowned amongst serious skiers for its excellent freeriding. Snowboarding legend Travis Rice grew up in Jackson Hole and endorsed it as having "the best freeriding in North America." Located in the western reaches of Wyoming, and 4 hours from the nearest big city, it's a real end of the road resort. The relative isolation means that the slopes are not too crowded, despite Jackson Hole being such a high ranking ski area.

A great introduction to the backcountry of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is Rock Springs Canyon. It’s easy to access, and there is fairly mellow terrain throughout. At the other end of the spectrum is the beastly Central Couloir: a steep, technical challenge that should really only be tackled by experienced skiers and snowboarders in optimum conditions.
