Jackson, Grand Teton and Yellowstone

I have been to Jackson and the surrounding area twice. Each time for a visit of the two famous national parks that are just north of Jackson: Grand Teton National Park and - of course - Yellowstone National Park. On this page I wrote down information about the town of Jackson and the national parks and other area attractions as well. Jackson is built in western style. It is a little expensive, too, with lots of fancy stores and great restaurants. And countless hotels and motels.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Snowboarding, Geysirs, mud pools, buffaloes, bears, wolves, coyotes, fine dining, western atmosphere... the list goes on and on...
  • Cons:Yellowstone is still active volcanic land. The earth's crust is thin and below the park is a huge volcanic caldera that might erupt one day. Hopefully I'm not close to it when that happens.

    Strange, you are Nr 1 Jackson page, almost without tips on Jackson, its almost all about G Teton and Yellowstone (which have their own pages on VT), Strange . . .

    The pool that I sat in at the BW LODGE had views of a fence next to storage units and gas station. The BW Inn at the ski area has views, but hotel is in need of updating.

    Nice page and pics on the parks. But not much on Jackson Hole itself. And the Buffalo is American Bison. Just so you know : )

    The Hole is all about the steep and sometimes deep. Corbet's Couloir is a destination unto itself. The first time skiing here I got off the plane and helped Anthony Quinn and his wife into Bo Derek's truck.

    After you mentioned skiing in Wyoming, I pretty much assumed you meant Jackson Hole so I had to visit this page. Jackson Hole has terrific skiing doesn't it? Is that you on the snowboard?? Come try Squaw out - lots of jumps there too for you!
