Jackson Hole, WyomingFebruary 20th - February 27th, 2005
In 2005, our annual ski trip brought us to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We traveled with the T-Bird Ski Club who offered up a package deal too good to pass up. We stayed at the Snow King Resort in the town of Jackson located right at the Snow King ski area. By bus, we were only a short drive to Jackson Hole Resort and only about an hour from Grand Targhee.
The difficulty of the terrain at Jackson Hole is legendary and it was the first time there for both of us as well as our travel partners, John and Lynn Thiry. For the most part, we found the stories to be true. There was very little beginner terrain, some really nice intermediate terrain, and mostly expert only terrain. In the week that we were there, we managed to hit a good chunk of what the area had to offer and had a blast. Rasa even managed to get in some para-gliding off the top of Grand Targhee. The conditions were spectacular with a nice dumping of new fallen snow, temperatures in the 30s every day, and blue skies.
