Vert?[edit]

"Snow King Resort has one of the steepest verts and is one of the few night-lit resorts in the nation." This sentence is confusing to me, probably because I don't know what a 'vert' is. It appears to be referring to a ski resort, so shouldn't it say "night-lit ski resort"? Also "one of the few" needs some sort of supporting reference, especially since there's a page Night skiing which, to me, implies that it isn't that rare. Also "directly in the center of town" is a stretch since it's on the South edge. Bill Smith (talk) 02:45, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Hole?[edit]

Is this supposed to be Jackson Hole, Wyoming? (sometimes the rambot and/or the census data don't like two-name towns)

No. There is no town of Jackson Hole. Jackson Hole is the name of the valley; Jackson is the town. --NoPetrol 02:41, 4 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Should there be a history section on this page?

Jackson Hole, Wyoming is not technically the town name but almost everyone that lives there calls it that. I've never really heard after living there for 20 years that Jackson Hole is just the name of the valley even though the town itself does sit in a hole-like valley.

Thats not my experience - I graduated from high school in Jackson, and nearly everybody I know calls the town, Jackson, and uses the correct names for the surrounding areas "I live in the Village / Wilson / Moose, etc.." I don't want to speak for all locals, but it was always my practice to "gently" correct tourists and newcomers that used the name incorrectly. In my experience, Jackson Hole is only ever used to refer to the whole valley (or at least the part south of the park) for the benefit of the tourists. The way Wikipedia handles it is correct, in my opinion, since the incorporated name of the town is Jackson, Wyoming, and the article links directly to Jackson Hole in the first sentence and Jackson Hole reciprocates in its description of the valley, so searches for both terms will get you to the right place. - CosmicPenguin (Talk) 17:11, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Introduction[edit]

Does the comment about the barbed wire really belong as the first fact about Jackson? It seems to me the introduction should offer its status as a popular tourist destination as the most important part, not some kitchy attraction (which I have never seen when visiting the Jackson Hole area several times).

Good point. Jackson has a lot to offer. Barbed wire has its enthusiasts, but perhaps this isn't the most appropriate lead.--Pearrari 23:48, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Jackson Hole Film Festival[edit]

Does anyone want to start the article for the Jackson Hole Film Festival? 199.200.243.253 (talk) 22:25, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Jackson Hole annual economic summit[edit]

Since 1978, the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank has held an annual economic summit at Jackson (Hole)that is globally known as the "Jackson Hole Economic Summit". This event is annually a major news item followed by the financial markets across the wbole globe and not mentioned at all, as it should be, along with details of that summit, as the local location, hotel/resort where it is held, along with photos. huangdi, emp of chinon, china CINCU Leto MCM !!69.121.221.97 (talk) 02:40, 22 August 2011 (UTC)!!
