Based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Hampton Luzak enjoys spending her free time in the outdoors, hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing.

One of Wyoming’s most popular skiing destinations is Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, a winter hot spot located in the Teton Range. Situated just 12 miles northwest of Jackson, the resort features 2,500 acres of skiable terrain that rises from a base elevation of 6,311 feet to a summit elevation of 10,450 feet.

While its 133 named trails offer something for skiers of all abilities, the resort is perhaps best known for Corbet’s Couloir, one of the most famous expert trails in the country. Skiers and snowboarders not daring or skilled enough to tackle the run can get a good view of it from the resort’s tram, which passes by Corbet’s every 10 minutes.

Alongside the expert, intermediate, and beginner runs, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort offers two terrain parks and four Burton Stash parks. In addition to jumps, rails, and boxes, the parks feature a 500-foot halfpipe with walls that reach 18 feet.
