In 1965 Jackson Hole Mountain Resort officially opened for the 1965/66 winter season, and Jackson Hole started its journey to become one of the most iconic ski towns in the world. Over the course of Jackson Hole’s now 50 continuous years of servicing skiers seeking to try some of the most difficult terrain in North America, the resort and the Jackson Hole area have provided some of the most influential moments in skiing history.
With two National Parks within a stone’s throw Jackson Hole has the unique privilege of having two of the largest protected areas surrounding our town’s borders. As a result we have some fantastic opportunities to see wildlife you will not see anywhere else. After living in Jackson Hole for a few years I am no expert, but I do have some helpful hints to maximize the amount and variety of animals you will see when visiting Jackson.
