SKI Magazine Readers Vote Jackson Hole #1 in Overall Satisfaction, #1 in Most Challenging Terrain and #1 in Character

The votes are in, and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) is ranked #1 in three categories:

Overall Satisfaction, Character and the Most Challenging Terrain by SKI magazine readers featured in the October issue. 



JHMR was also voted the #6 overall resort in North America, its highest ranking ever. 

These results affirm the resort’s goal to continually improve the guest experience year over year.  Over the last decade the resort ownership has invested in facilities, lifts and terrain upgrades to round out the resort experience especially when it comes to intermediate skiing. Now, Jackson Hole’s legendary big mountain trail network is complemented by improved intermediate terrain, all with famous cowboy powder. 

“The Kemmerer Family and JHMR’s Board of Directors have been dedicated to improving the infrastructure of the resort, and with their leadership over $135 Million in on-mountain improvements have been reinvested.  A new Aerial Tram, an eight passenger gondola, five chairlifts, an on-mountain restaurant, expanded snowmaking, and increased grooming fleet  have all enhanced the Jackson Hole experience while keeping the western character of Teton Village intact,” stated Jerry Blann, President of JHMR. 

This summer saw the culmination of three years of work to transform the Casper area of the mountain into an intermediate’s paradise.  Improvements included extensive summer grooming of the terrain, expansion of more snowmaking, increase in snow grooming vehicles, construction of an intermediate terrain park and a new high speed 4-passenger chairlift. Blann explained, “This work shows JHMR’s continued dedication to the skiing and snowboard experience and a commitment to create memorable mountain vacations for all our guests.”
