Originally named after Davey Jackson, a mountain man who fell trapped in this area during the late 1800's, the resort has hosted over 15 blockbuster films including "Any Which Way You Can" and "Rocky IV".
Home to the worlds first national park, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole shelters over 172 species of mammals, birds and game fish.
It's low ski density adds to the resorts appeal with only 1,750 skiers sharing roughly 2,500 acres on average. It also has one of the lowest base elevations of any ski resort in the Rocky Mountains, at just 6,311 ft.
Although Jackson Hole has become very commercial in recent years, it still maintains it's open space, strong letting restrictions and a sense of the Rockies cowboy appeal.
