Getting to Jackson Hole

Getting to Jackson Hole by air is easy. Teton Village is a quick shuttle from Jackson Hole's large commercial airport. Jackson Hole airport is served from most major U.S. airports. The nearest international airport is Salt Lake City, roughly four and a half hours south.

Getting To Jackson Hole 660X260

Jackson Hole's setting among the mountains of northwest Wyoming seems calculated to impress. Sweeping into the broad Snake River valley by plane gives a grandstand view of the Teton Range to the north. From touchdown at Jackson Hole airport, it's an easy 9 miles to the town of Jackson and a further 12 miles to Teton Village resort at the base of the ski area-just twenty minutes by car or shuttle bus. Here the peaks rise dramatically from the high valley plain, from around 6,000 feet (1,829 m) above sea level to a lift-served maximum of over 10,000 feet (3,048 m.) The highest peak in the range, Grand Teton, reaches nearly 14,000 feet (4,267 m.)

There are no direct flights from outside the U.S. but there are connections from most of the major U.S. airports. The nearest international airports with good European connections are Denver and Salt Lake City, from where you can drive (about 280 miles/450 km) to Jackson.

Yellowstone National Park's south entrance is just 55 miles (88 km) north of town and is responsible, along with Grand Teton National Park, for a busy summer season. That also accounts for the winter low season-a strange anomaly for one of the world's great ski resorts-and ensures there's always a good range of accommodations to choose from.

An hour and a half by car from Jackson on the other side of the Tetons is the cat-ski and powder mecca Grand Targhee, in reasonably good weather an easy (and essential) day trip  for visitors to Jackson Hole.
