Wyoming is the 10th largest state of the United States of America in terms of total area. Located in the western side of the US, in a mountainous region, it is bordered by Montana (north), Colorado (south), Utah (southwest), Idaho (west), Nebraska and South Dakota (east). The state’s capital and largest city is Cheyenne, with more than 63,000 inhabitants. Its landscape is characterised by high mountains, great rivers, such as Snake River and Hoback River, forested trails, deep canyons and vast plateaus.
With a climate that is mostly continental and semi-arid, summers are warm, reaching 29 to 35°C in July, with most of the rainfall occurring between late spring and early summer. Winters are generally cold, but can be extremely cold with snow in the mountainous areas, where the backcountry skiing areas in the town of Alpine, for instance, contrast with the popular ski resorts in Jackson Hole valley (e.g. Snow King Mountain Resort and Grand Targhee Resort). Located at the southern part of the valley is Jackson, the main and most touristy town, often called Jackson Hole. You will find a commercial area around the town square with several shops and restaurants.
