Skiing in Jackson Hole has a huge reputation for its gnarly terrain. You can't miss Corbett's Couloir on the Rendezvous Mountain. The black runs concentrated in the area - 'Bivouac', 'Central Chute' and 'Cheyenne Gully'- are all steep and glorious, sometimes the Tsunami bumps appear, sometimes you could wake to find twelve inches of pristine powder! To the left you'll find more open spaces - 'Tensleep Bowl' is a good place for finding freshies if you're early.
Après Vous Mountain is the gentler companion to Rendezvous; the terrain is a lot easier going and a place to go when you have been humbled. St John's is a wonderfully pitched cruiser on which to build speed without too much concern. There are some widely spaced trees here to wend your way through in a relaxed fashion, so you can pretty much ski where you please.
Jackson Hole is as much a mecca for expert boarders as it is for skiers. There is a terrain park and halfpipe at the base of Après Vous mountain, but the real draw is the natural terrain and the snow conditions. Some of the traverses are tough for boarders to maintain speed on.
