Also any advice on attempting Corbetts???
On Corbetts it depends on your experience and the snowpack. If there is a bunch of new snow it is much easier than hardpack. If you really want to do it and you are an advanced skier wait till your there before you decide. I did it when there was about 2 feet of new snow so when I jumped in I landed up to my waist so I basically stopped and easily skied down to Tensleep Bowl.
One time a visiting instructor from CA had to do it even tho it had not snowed for several weeks and was advised against it. He took off from the launch pad hit the snow then took off again totally out of control and crashed into the rock wall. Have you ever seen a compound fracture go thru a ski boot..not a pretty sight.
As far as lodging you have the base area, Teton Village, expensive but convenient. There are some low priced condos there that are old but basically kept up by their owners. Grow Ventre and Tensleep units can sleep 4-6 people so if you maximum occ, 4 in a 1BR, 6 in a 2BR the price divided up can be pretty reasonable.
The other main lodging is in the town of Jackson, about 13 miles away. There are some cheap motels, even a Motel 6 but you have take the bus to the area.
Some people stay in the Aspens, more condos, about 4 miles from JHMR. Any of these will work it just depends on your personal prefences.
In Jackson their are several motels within walking distance of the town square. After skiing you can walk to many bars, restaurants, shopping and even art galleries.
