Stay at Spring Creek Ranch for a few of Jackson Hole’s speedy spring events like the World Championship Hill Climb Town Downhill Ski Race.
Join us March 22nd – 25th for the 37th Annual Jackson Hole World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb. Cheer on your favorite snow mobiler as they carve their way up the 1,500 vertical feet of Snow King Mountain on 500-lb. “Sleds”. Spring Creek’s Hill Climb package will allow you to take part in the exciting festivities of the Hill Climb and then escape the 10,000-people crowds by coming up our own hill overlooking the Tetons for your relaxing stay.
The Jackson Town Downhill on March 17th features the heart-throbbing Mini-Hahnenkamm course on Snow King Mountain (aka the “Town Hill”) with divisions for Pro, Recreation, Telemark, Junior, Fat and Baggy and Snowboard. The ski and snowboard event is the local Ski Club’s way of recognizing that skiing – and ski racing – is truly a lifetime sport. Jackson Hole is one of the last places in the county to organize and support a non-sanctioned downhill race. This community favorite draws over 100 competitors and 500 spectators.
Whether you compete or not, this event is fun to watch from the bottom, chairlift, or the top. Spring Creek is the perfect place to stay since it’s close to the action, yet located high above the crowds in town. Find the spring special that’s perfect for you!

Sam Rendall Hits the Slopes for Valentine’s Day
Blue skies and sunshine ruled a wonderful Valentine’s Day skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
With 9” of new snow in the last two days, the skiing just keeps getting better.
Cold overnight temperatures—combined with yesterday’s wind—left the snow soft & smooth for everyone who made skiing a part of their Valentine’s Day celebration. Today was an exceptional day to explore both the freshly groomed trails & wind-buffed powder leftover from Friday night’s storm.
Snow is in the forecast again for tonight & President’s Day Monday, so if you aren’t all ready here, pack up your ski gear and get on out to Jackson Hole. Spring Creek Ranch has a special or package for you. What are you waiting for?
Spring Creek’s Derek Goodson Skis the JHMR
Went skiing this morning at Teton Village with a Spring Creek Ranch guest from Houston, Texas. Another night of unexpected snow fell leaving six inches of the lightest fluffiest powder on top the other five or six feet that has fallen in the last week.
We were able to ski runs of untracked boot top powder on a trail that had been groomed before it had snowed. For those not used to powder snow, it is an experience you will truly enjoy – especially that signature Jackson Hole champagne powder.
I was also able to find some other really deep stuff too – not completely untracked, but certainly enough to put an ear-to-ear grin on my face. With so few people, we were skiing on the lift every run, and had a full day of skiing by noon, but skied until 1pm since it was that good.
Cowboy Powder Snow Makes for Happy Cowboys
Over the past week there has been five feet of new snow falling upon Jackson Hole. With the majority coming down the past 72 hours.
Waking up each morning to 10 inches of new snow, is a welcoming sight. I had to hit the slopes to find the deep powder.
Once at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, which is only about 20 minutes from Spring Creek Ranch, I realized that no matter where I went it was good.
After a long day of great powder skiing, I found myself in the company of good friends reminiscing about turns made earlier, over a pint at the world-famous Mangy Moose bar in the Teton Village.
Spring Creek’s Derek Goodson Describes Skiing in Jackson Hole
Skiing in Jackson Hole is either sunshine or powder, or both.
Today, we saw a beautiful sunny day with great groomers, and as seen by the empty chairs, no crowds.
The view from the top of Sublette chair at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort looking south over Jackson Hole just never gets tiring.
Spring Creek Ranch can be seen atop of the East Gros Ventre Butte between the Town of Jackson and the Teton Mountain Range.
Looking to the north behind the Tram is the National Elk Refuge and Grand Teton National Park, and two more reasons to be in Jackson Hole in the winter.
