Being the travel junkies that we are, we never let a long holiday weekend go by without taking full advantage of it. So for MLK weekend in 2017, we put to use a Delta companion ticket we earned from our SkyMiles credit card, and booked two non-stop tickets on Delta from JFK to Jackson for a four night ski getaway. Continuously voted by Forbes as the best ski area in the country, as well as the most challenging, we were ecstatic to test the powder and our abilities at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Our flight landed around noon on a Saturday and because of the petite size of the airport, we deplaned outside onto the snowy tarmac and quickly ushered into the warmth of the modern terminal. We were greeted with complimentary mimosas and snacks by the luggage carousel. Once we collected all of our belongings, we boarded a shuttle and had a short but scenic 15 minute ride to our hotel.
