Wild West Tour

It’s time to round up ‘yer partner and kick up your heels – DreamSki Adventures is taking you into the heart of the Wild West for some great terrain, dry powder and western hospitality (and more bad cowboy clichés!). This is a dream itinerary for the uninitiated – big terrain with big snow and very few people.

You will be skiing the great American West in Wyoming and Montana where you will experience the longest and the largest ski areas the USA has to offer! And they are in the two states with the lowest population densities of all 50 states other than Alaska. So needless to say you will experience uncrowded slopes and won't have to compete with too many other skiers for fresh tracks in an area also known for plenty of dry powder.

In Montana you will ski Big Sky which offers the largest skiable acreage in all the U.S. with 5,512 acres on their inter-connected ticket. It also boasts the second longest vertical in the United States at 4,366 ft / 1,331m. Right behind it in third spot with 4,139 vertical feet, you will experience Jackson Hole, Wyoming, famous for its challenging terrain and volume of snow in the Grand Teton mountain range. On the other side of the Grand Tetons, you will explore Grand Targhee, a hidden gem and a powder paradise known for the light, dry and abundant snowfall across 2,000 acres/800 hectares of ski terrain.

 
Jackson Hole

Grand Targhee 

Big Sky 

 These four ski areas are among the top resorts in the world for annual average snowfall.
  • Big Sky: Annual average = 400 inches / 10 meters
  • Grand Targhee: Annual average = 463 inches / 11.7 meters
  • Jackson Hole: Annual average = 500 inches / 12.7 meters
These areas offer a good opportunity for great snow conditions and abundant fresh tracks relative to most ski destinations. In fact Grand Targhee offers a snow guarantee – if you are not happy with the snow they will give you a rain check from November to April. Also don’t forget - you will be in the middle of nowhere relatively speaking for North American ski resorts, and there will be no line ups and few people competing for the fresh snow.

The landscapes you will be skiing and travelling through are unparalleled and truly western. You'll be surrounded by the Grand Teton Mountain range towering over you and then travelling along the western side of world famous Yellowstone National Park. The towns of Jackson and Big Sky will be a memorable experience with their western theme, hospitality and charm.

DreamSki Adventures chooses its destinations based on the best skiing, not the best marketed skiing, which is usually off the beaten track. They choose destinations known for quality of snow and fewer people in order to experience as much fresh snow as possible. When you are spending your ski holiday money you should have unique destinations with good probabilities of great snow conditions to get the most out of your valuable time and money. The Wild West Tour delivers this in spades!

Wild West Tour Itinerary

Day 1 (Arrival Day)
Arrival into Jackson, Wyoming where you will be met by your DreamSki guides and join your fellow powder hounds. You are truly in the Wild West here with Wyoming having been the home to the likes of Buffalo Bill and Butch Cassidy. You will have today to settle in and explore the famous downtown of Jackson.

Day 2-4 (Ski Jackson)
Three days skiing at Jackson Hole Resort and one day at Grand Targhee. Jackson Hole is nick named “The Big One” for its large vertical of 4,139 ft /1,261m & over 2,500 acres/1,000 hectares of skiing terrain. It is a skiers dream with endless steeps, powder filled open bowls, chutes, gullies, cliffs, ridges and trees, and home to the famous Mangy Moose bar. You will use the new Aerial Tram (2008) that whisks you up the entire 4,139 ft in 9 minutes, dropping you at the peak for limitless off-piste options. You will be staying in the town of Jackson (where all the action is) for great meals, night life, dancing and shopping; plus a visit to the famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar.

Day 5 (Travel Day & Sightseeing)
Travel day to Big Sky, Montana through the magnificent Teton Mountain Range and alongside world famous Yellowstone National Park. The highway will summit at an incredible 8,429 ft / 2,570m as we leave Wyoming. You will stop in the bustling town of West Yellowstone for a great lunch and a visit to the renowned Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Centre to experience these amazing creatures up close in their natural habitat.

Day 6-9 (Ski Big Sky)
4 days of skiing at Big Sky Resort offering the “Biggest skiing in America” with a staggering 5,512 acres of skiing in one place. You are now located in the second least populated state in the USA and the closest major centre is over an hour away with only 27,000 people! Thus the slopes will be uncrowded and a guarantee of no lift lines! After skiing on Day 9 you will travel to Grand Targhee.

Day 10-11 (Ski Grand Targhee)
This relatively unknown “powder paradise”, often ranked in the top 3 resorts for snow on the continent, is located on the western side of the Grand Tetons. Thus it receives abundant snow as the high peaks of the Grand Tetons (13,700 ft) trap all the snowstorms traveling eastward from the Pacific. You will enjoy abundant fresh track opportunities and true ski culture with a warm small town feeling.

After skiing on Day 11 we will take the short trip back to Jackson to celebrate at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar and say our goodbyes until next time.

Day 12 (Departure Day)
Transfer to Jackson airport for your flight home.

Flight InformationYou will fly into and out of Jackson, Wyoming Airport (JAC). Traveling to Jackson during the winter is quite easy. Only one connection is required from all countries and they are reasonable connections with minimal layover times.

The Jackson airport has daily non-stop flights from seven US Cities: Atlanta, Washington, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Salt Lake City and Los Angeles; with four airlines: Delta, United, American, and Northwest Airlines.
