Jackson Hole is where it all started. The idea for 57hours was born after my first time skiing in the Grand Teton National Park backcountry with Doug during the winter of 2014. I’ve been a skier all my life, but skiing deep powder in this wild place opened up a whole new dimension. Jackson Hole has everything, from the number one ski resort in the United States to an authentic wild west vibe as well as unlimited wilderness of the national park open for skiers. It almost feels like all the badass cowboys switched to skis and are now ripping down those iconic mountains, wherever they can find a piece of snow.

Itinerary

Some of the best ski days of my life I had with Doug. It seems that there’s some lucky charm floating between us because we skied together all over the world, from France and Alaska to Jackso, and we always got lucky with snow and conditions. We hope this luck will follow us this time too! Doug has lived in Jackson for over 25 years and he’s one of the more famous guides there. With him on board, we can’t go wrong. Good skiing is guaranteed for any skill level, both in resorts as well as in the backcountry.

  • Make your way to the famous Jackson Hole, Wyoming! Make sure to arrive a day prior to the start of the adventure so you can get settled into your accommodation and get some rest before a week of skiing which starts tomorrow. This will be our base for the next week. Meet the rest of the team and your hosts, and get a good night’s sleep!

    Howdy stranger, Jackson Hole
  • The next week is all about shredding powder. Jackson Hole offers both top-class resort skiing as well as epic side-country, so you’ll find exciting terrain and untouched slopes every day. The area around Jackson Hole has everything from laps off Teton Pass to adrenaline-pumping chutes in Grand Teton National Park and low-angle slopes in Targhee. It’s not hard to find fresh turns in the Jackson Hole backcountry, including sweeping bowls, timbered terrain, and steep chutes.

    There’s a reason why Jackson Hole is one of the most beloved skiing destinations in the world. With options suitable for skiers of all levels and easy backcountry access from resort boundaries, you’ll find it hard to leave the winter wonderland of Jackson Hole.

    The après ski scene is just as fantastic and it’s something to look forward to, as it radiates a unique, wild west charm with its saloons and restaurants.
