  • Previously this terrain was only available if you wanted to hike with your skis even though it's intermediate & advanced level skiing.
  • The new Teton lift will take you 1600 vertical feet & will be a high speed quad chairlift.
  • The new wide groomed runs & gladed tree skiing off the Teton lift will be a fantastic addition to the skiing & snowboarding at Jackson Hole ski resort.
