Short for "Jackson Hole", the name of the valley surrounding Jackson, Wyoming-home to the famous Jackson Hole Mountain Resort which touts a 100-person tram with a 4,100' vertical ascent in just 8 minutes, the world famous ski run named Corbet's Couloir, and a 128 day long season which observes just under 500" of annual snowfall. Several celebrities such as Travis Rice, Dick Cheney, Harrison Ford, Nelson Mandela, Whoopi Goldberg, Julia Lynn Dryfus, and many others call JH home for at least part of the year.

"I'm going to JH, so I can ride Corbet's one time before I die, that is if I don't die while attempting to ride it."
