Say goodbye to red brake lights flashing in your face and hop a flight to Jackson Hole

With spring skiing and spring break fully on the radar now, there’s a lot weighing in your favor to tap into what has been one of the most epic seasons in decades. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is more than 140% over average snowfall right now, and at this point there is literally nothing holding you back from some of North America’s best pow, liveliest slopeside concerts, and deepest discounts, in what the resort is calling The Best Spring Break Ever in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. 

And yes, like much of the central Rockies, they are having a banner season, now with 480 inches of snow reported as we turn the corner into spring — and more on the way. That, and you can fly there. So get those images of red tail lights on I-70 out of your head. And for those in the know, this is also the perfect opportunity for tapping into your Ikon pass one more time before the end of the season. Check out all the spring deals that are setting Jackson apart below.

Road to Rendezvous

Now picture this: after parking for free, you’re riding the gondi and skiing powder under clear blue Wyoming skies, the Teton Range as your backdrop, and you’ve got more than 2,500 acres almost entirely for yourself and your posse. At the bottom of the hill, the now-famed Road to Rendezvous concert series begins to warm up (every Saturday in March) leading up to the 16th annual Rendezvous Spring Festival on March 31-April 1 2023, where general admission is free. The Jackson Hole Rendezvous Spring Festival is a two-day fest with legendary music acts in both historic downtown Jackson Town Square and the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Air Credit

Like we said, flying has always been a great option to get into Jackson, but right now, they’ve got some pretty unique deals going on to help you forget driving altogether. Tap into their $400 air credit — a new program being offered where JHMR worked with Alaska, American, Delta, and United to save you up to $400 on each flight (up to $1,600 for four travelers) when lodging and a qualifying dollar amount of activities are booked. The beauty of this unique program is that it’s valuable to everyone from co-eds to families. And if you’ve never flown into Jackson, you’re in for a treat. It’s easily one of the most breathtaking landing strips in the world, with the Tetons towering above Jenny Lake on one side and the largest elk preserve in the country on the other, it’s a bucket list trip without a doubt. Seeing the wildlife on the short drive from the airport to the resort only gets you stoked for what you might see over the next few days on the mountain, as moose, raptors, coyotes, porcupines, and many other wild animals call the area home.

If you decide to pull the trigger on this trip over the weekend of March 17-19, you’ll also have an opportunity to experience Dick’s Ditch: a unique throwback, two-day Banked Slalom competition that runs through the natural and man-made terrain features of the famed Dick’s Ditch run on JHMR, from Nez Perce Traverse down to “Marlboro” area. Pro divisions earn cash prizes of $1000 for first place.

Discounts for Any Passholder

And there’s one more thing. JHMR’s Golden Ticket is back this spring: it gives 50% off lift tickets for season passholders from any resort in the world, from March 14 to April 9. Paired with the Rendezvous lodging packages – lodging deals crafted specifically for the Rendezvous Spring Festival — and the $400 Air Credit, you’d be kinda crazy not to take them up on this season’s discounts. Carpe Skiem. 

After doing your homework, it seems the stats just continue to add up for Jackson’s Best Spring Break Ever: flights from 13 cities, 400 bucks back, 480-plus inches of pow, short lift lines, free live music, competitions, and evenings ranging from hot tub and chill to the Cowboy Bar. What are you waiting for? Push play.
