Jackson Hole is the gateway to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, world-class skiing and myriad summer sporting activities.
With the Teton Range as its breathtaking backdrop, the mountain resort’s airport offers many adventure-seeking tourists their first and last impression of the community. Given the terminal’s strict site boundary limitations — it is the only U.S. airport located within a national park — and the dramatic surroundings, the recent renovation and expansion position the airport as a refined, understated foreground feature of the awe-inspiring landscape.
Vernacular woods, exposed structural elements, and an emphasis on human scale and historic western heritage distinguish Jackson Hole from conventional airport designs.
