Winter in Jackson Hole
Experience the adventure and beauty of winter in Jackson Hole.
Winter is a magical time to visit Jackson Hole. Skiers and snowboarders will love the world-class terrain available at the area’s three resorts: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King Mountain and Grand Targhee Resort. Aside from top-notch skiing and snowboarding, there are so many winter activities to choose from in Jackson Hole. Here’s an overview of things to do in the winter:
Wildlife Tours & National Parks
Winter is a unique and inspiring time to visit Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park near Jackson Hole. Yellowstone is only accessible by treaded snowcoach or snowmobile during the winter. Take a guided tour into the park to view the stunning winter landscape, wildlife, and geological features in peaceful solitude without the crowds of the summer months. Grand Teton National Park is a beautiful winter retreat for a quiet cross country skiing or snowshoeing tour. You can travel with a knowledgeable guide who will enrich your experience with information about the local environment and wildlife.
Family Fun & Adventure
Take the whole family out to the National Elk Refuge on a horse-drawn sleigh. As you glide over the beautiful landscape, you will see hundreds of elk up close and learn about these majestic animals from your guide. Dog sledding is another incredible family activity that will whisk you through the winter landscape and afford wildlife watching opportunities. You may even get to try your hand at mushing! Snow King Mountain located right in Jackson also offers snow tubing and the new Snow King Cowboy Coaster, for a rip-roaring good time the family will love!
The winter season brings a whole lot of seasonal events to Jackson Hole. If you're looking to get festive and celebrate the holidays, don't miss out on Santa on the Square. This free community event takes place right in Town Square, plus you'll get to meet Santa and his elves while sipping on some hot cocoa. New Year's Eve isn't overlooked in Jackson Hole either- there are plenty of events and celebrations around town each year, including various annual Torchlight Parades. If you're visiting Jackson Hole closer to the end of winter, be sure to check out the Rendezvous Festival or the World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb. More Jackson Hole events can be found here.
