March is always a great month to visit Jackson Hole. In the early days of spring, you will experience a full range of weather and snow conditions in the Rocky Mountains. There can be days with big storms, bringing powder skiing and riding, and then you can have sunny, warmer days with corn snow, sometimes all within the same week. No matter what the weather brings though, you can count on some great events to add to your memorable Jackson Hole spring trip.
March 19-20: The Mini Hahnenkamm Town Downhill
A classic local favorite is the Town Downhill, which is put on by the Jackson Hole Ski Club at Snow King Mountain. The race features a pro division; as well as recreational, telemark, junior and snowboard divisions, all of which attract over 200 competitors and 500 spectators. This event pays tribute to the long history of ski racing in the community, recognizing Jackson Hole as one of the last ski areas in the country to hold a non-sanctioned downhill race. Following the last day of racing, there’s a fun awards party at the base of Snow King.
