In case you hadn’t heard, Jackson Hole got hammered with snow last season. Three hundred forty-six inches of fluff blew in between Jan. 1 and April 6, when the mountain closed, making it the deepest winter in 20 years. So there’s that. Then there’s the terrain. Forty-degree steeps in the Alta chutes. Thirty-foot leaps off Corbet’s Couloir. Technical glades in Saratoga Bowl. Some of the best and easiest-to-access backcountry anywhere. “Trees, cliffs, steeps, snowfall—what a great place to explore!” says one reader. It all nabs the resort the No. 1 rank for Challenge. But Jackson isn’t only about the skiing. Massive views of Grand Teton National Park garner it a No. 3 for Scenery; archways made of elk antlers, classic watering holes like the Cowboy Bar, and 
a more laid-back, we’re-not-in-Aspen vibe earn it another No. 3 for its charming Western Character. —Gordy Megroz

What’s new » Direct air service from New York and Seattle.

Dinner pick » Take a gondola ride with heated blankets and hot cocoa for the kids to Couloir for Chef Wes Hamilton’s delicious, locally sourced fare.

Après spot » We’ve said it before, but the Mangy Moose is still the best après bar…anywhere.

Don’t miss » A hot waffle at Corbet’s Cabin, at the top of the tram.
