5 days at Jackson Hole last week in Feb, need advice...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Heading to JH in a couple of weeks for the first time with four friends. We are staying in a condo in the Village. All are level 7+ skiers. Couple of questions.

 

Where is the best place to rent demo skis? I know there are 3 or 4 different shops, anyone better than the others for selection or quality? 

 

Since none of us has skied there before we were thinking of taking free mountain tour first day and maybe 1/2 day private lesson for the group on day 2. Hoping to get local knowledge of out of the way stuff Casper, Hobacks etc. and improve my skiing.

 

Any other suggestions welcome. Thanks

Suggest you send a PM to tetonpwdrjunkie about setting up a lesson.

Have a great time. 

I live in Massachusetts but I've been there four times. A great time.

 

For a touch of local color take the last bus into town.  It's mostly locals who work in the village, and is a bit of a party bus.  We realized we were sitting behind Skiing-in-jackson and his son and struck up a conversation.  Take a cab back -- its pretty cheap, and they charge by the ride, not per passenger.
