Wyoming Ski & Snowboard Resort Guide

While Wyoming has the least number of people of any state in the US, it certainly has some of the best skiing and snowboarding. Tucked away in the American West, Wyoming seems remote and may conjure images of cowboy movies. While there is plenty of leftover cowboy memorabilia, Wyoming has developed some of the best ski and snowboard areas around, resort like Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee. Sitting just outside of Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, skiers and snowboarders from around the world head to these resorts every year. In addition to these two large ski areas, there are a handful of other small community ski and snowboard areas spread across Wyoming.
