Not the typical tree-lined rolling mountains found in a lot of US resorts, Jackson is a high peaked mountain resort that is located in a large valley some 10-40 miles wide and 50 miles long. At the base of the slopes is a small village called Teton, 10miles away from the main town of Jackson Hole, which has the much smaller resort of Snow King rising out of it.
