If you are skiing or visiting in winter, staying in Teton Village definitely offers you the most convenience. Jackson Hole is a premier ski resort, so if you love snow sports like we do, definitely check out Jackson Hole in winter.
Although the village is great for skiers, we also love staying in the town of Jackson, especially during the summer when the town truly comes alive with activities and visitors.
