Questions & Answers

Jackson Hole is as easy or as difficult as you want it to be. With 2,500 acres of in-bounds skiing, the mountain offers rich variety from bunny hills and smooth groomers to open powder bowls, trees, cliffs, and couloirs.

Corbet's Couloir near the top of Rendezvous Mountain is one of the most famous and challenging runs on the mountain. It's considered nearly a rite of passage to locals with a cliff drop in to a narrow chute. Skiers come from all over the world to conquer it.

But if you prefer skiing to feel more like a magic carpet ride than a cliff-diving adrenaline rush, you'll find plenty of terrain that suits your ability and preferences.
