Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has 133 named trails including 50% expert, 40% intermediate and 10% beginner. The mountain features 12 lifts including Bridger Gondola and “Big Red”, their World-famous Aerial Tram. With 2500 acres of in-bound terrain and a whopping 4,139-foot vertical drop, there’s plenty of room to explore!
Elk Country Inn
The trip package includes 6 nights (Tue-Mon) in the Elk Country Inn (hotel rooms) with daily continental breakfast, RT air from Washington to Jackson (details below), and ground transfers.
Amenities at the newly remodeled Elk Country Inn include a fitness room and an indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub. Our rooms, with two Queen beds, are beautifully furnished in Knotty Pine and Old Hickory. Add $490 for the single supplement if you want a room to yourself. The Inn is just a short drive from Grand Teton National Park and the Jackson Hole Ski Resort, and less than an hour from Yellowstone National Park.
NOTE: The club's trips to Jackson Hole typically include a day trip to Grand Targhee. For a number of reasons, primarily related to the lift-ticket situation, we have decided not to include Grand Targhee in this-winter's trip package.
Daily mountain transfers are provided by the hotel (two up in the morning and one back in the afternoon).
Resort Lift Tickets: Group lift tickets are not being offered by the resort during this holiday period, so there is no option to purchase a lift ticket from the club as part of our trip package. Participants will need to purchase their own lift ticket from the resort or purchase a "full" Ikon pass, which provides 7 days of skiing at the resort with no blackout dates (more below). Expected resort lift ticket rates are as follows:
| 2022-2023 Resort Lift Ticket Prices
|| 4 Day
|| 5 Day
| Teen (13-18)
| Senior (65+)
| Youth (5-12)
The resort recommends purchasing lift tickets at least 14 days in advance of your visit for the best rates and to ensure availability of your desired ski dates.
Ikon Passes: Ikon Passes, which must be individually purchased (not through the club), provide the best value if you plan more than one trip to an "Ikon resort." Participants are encouraged to purchase their Ikon Pass early-on as the cost typically increases with time. The cost of a full Ikon Pass was as follows, as of early June 2022:
- $1179 - Adult (age 23+)
- $879 - Youth/Young Adult (age 13-22)
- $839 - College, Nurse and Military (Adult & Young Adult)
- $389 - Child (age 5-12)
- $149 - Toddler (age 4 & under)
You may purchase Ikon Passes directly from Ikon, but we suggest that you visit our Epic & Ikon Pass page to explore the various options available, including promotional offers from our tour operators. They offer all except the military passes, which must be purchased directly from Ikon. Our tour operator for this trip, Winter Ski and Sport, will afford you a rebate on your trip if you buy your Ikon Pass through them.
Lift Reservations Required: Jackson Hole will require lift reservations for all Ikon Pass holders for the 2022-23 season "...to help manage capacity and offer the best guest experience." Reservations will be made available starting August 1, 2022. To make a reservation, login to My Account on ikonpass.com. Be sure to book your reservations early on as there is a risk of the available spaces being sold out.
