Self & Wife are both experienced/decent Intermediate skiers but not experts. Comfortable on Reds and some Blacks. Have skied USA in Vail, Breckenridge and Aspen/Snowmass. We are looking to return to North America this Winter and fancy Jackson. But we have some doubts due to its reputation as a particularly "Expert" resort. However have read some reports recently saying plenty for Intermediates too.
We would appreciate advice & feedback from anyone who has skied there in recent years regarding its suitabilty for Intermediates, particularly would there be enough to keep us occupied on say a 10 day trip?
Thanks

Jackson Hole is amazing resort, though it is best suited to advanced skiers, as you say. While there is quite a bit of intermediate skiing, you're not going to get the most out it.
Loved the town itself, genuine cowboy country, ranches as far as the eye can see. The food was superb wherever we went, though they aren't really into the vegi thing.
There are a lot of black runs, ranging from relatively easy wide slopes, though heavily moguled, to extreme narrow clutes. Also several unpisted slopes which are challenging. The north, middle and south Hobacks for instance are actually a whole unpisted mountain side.
Take a day trip over to Grand Targhee too.
