My wife and I will be staying in Ogden mid March and skiing Snowbasin for free on our Powder Alliance Passes. We have a spare day on the Saturday, and rather than skiing Powder Mountain, like we have in the past, thought we might take a trip to Jackson Hole for a day. Here is our plan;
We will ski Snowbasin on the Thursday and Friday, pack up the car and drive north to Jackson Hole Friday evening. We have a 2WD mid size rental. Google maps shows the drive taking just over four hours. The map also shows an alternate route through Idaho Falls, but we planned on taking the more direct route. We have a free cancellation on the hotel, so won't bother making the trip if it storms, but presume we should be OK with regular winter driving. We have a reservation at the Super 8 in Jackson and will make the trip to the resort in the morning. The best ticket price we can find is $113 online through the resort. Most of the deals seem to be based on hotel occupancy for multiple days. We don't need powder, but we do want soft snow, so if it warms up goes into slush/ice mode, I don't think we'll bother. For terrain we don't go too extreme but do like to get off the groomers and explore the steeps, bumps and glades. We will probably stay the Saturday night, then take a leisurely drive back to Salt Lake on Sunday.
Any and all tips and advice, will be gratefully accepted.
