Jackson Hole Ski Trip

The first weekend in March Matt and I road tripped to Jackson, WY to ski with 6 of our Midwest friends that live in Salt Lake. We have visited Jackson a few times during the summer, but this was our first time skiing there. The city and ski resort are so beautiful during the winter! We drove up Friday after work, skied a full day Saturday, half day Sunday, and drove home that night. We stayed right in downtown Jackson about 20 min from the resort, and it was great to be in walking distance to restaurants and bars. We enjoyed dinner at Snake River Brewery and got drinks at the Cowboy Bar Saturday night. We also ate at a few restaurants at the ski resort during the day. The temps were warm and the conditions were slushy and icy in patches, making it the first weekend of spring skiing. The terrain is for intermediate to advanced with mostly double blue and black runs, so we were definitely sore after day 1! Day 2 was a little bit more relaxed, and we had time to explore most of the mountain in one weekend. We took the tram up to the summit to finish out the day Sunday before heading home. It was a great last ski trip with friends and we can’t wait to explore new resorts on the Ikon Pass next season! Writing this blog over a month later, it’s crazy to think that this was our last full weekend skiing for the season before all of the resorts shut down due to Covid. We would normally be spring skiing until this past weekend, but we will just have to wait until November. We are definitely ready for hiking and camping season!
