With a staggering 459 inches of average snowfall, Jackson Hole is all about the big-mountain powder. Half of the 116 trails are for experts, and you’ll get bragging rights plowing through the dry stuff down steep chutes and bumps. Those less comfortable on the steeps can take private lessons with the staff of Olympians and pro boarders, or join a Steep and Deep camp to improve your confidence and grace in pow.
DON’T MISS: Take a nearby Wildlife Tour with EcoTours and Adventures to scope moose, bighorn sheep, elk, and bison in Grand Teton National Park and National Elk Refuge.
GETTING THERE: This year Jackson added nonstop flights from Newark, San Francisco, and Minneapolis. (jacksonhole.com)
