Jackson Hole is known for it’s world-class skiing but also offers a host of unique wintertime activities. Here are a few must-do’s for the adventure seekers coming to Jackson Hole.
Take a trip through Yellowstone, the world’s first national park, on snowmobile. View wildlife, visit Old Faithful, and discover the fascinating thermal features of the park. Guided tours are a must.
Get up close to the Tetons by cross-country skiing or a snowshoe tour in Grand Teton National Park. You can rent equipment in town and head out on your own, or join a tour.
A winter visit to Jackson Hole would not be complete without the unique experience of a sleigh ride on the National Elk Refuge. From mid- December to late March visitors can enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride in and around a herd of over 10,000 elk.
Want to really step it up? View the wilds of Wyoming and give your driving skills a test with a dog sled tour. A day of extreme dog sledding and mushing in Jackson Hole for those with a zest for speed and snow, single overnight trips, and multiple overnight excursions for those who want to experience the “real” backcountry.
If you are planning to come here to do one thing and one thing only… Ski and snowboard, then here are a few must-do’s.
There is nothing like the adrenaline rush that comes from a day of ripping through waist deep powder with the helicopter buzzing in the background. Book a Jackson Hole heli-skiing tour for the ultimate skiing and snowboarding experience.
To experience the awe dropping backcountry skiing without a helicopter, you can go SnowCat skiing and log up to 20,000 vertical feet of untouched powder. Half day and full day tours are available.
For the really fit adventure skiers and snowboarders that want to do it on their own two feet can experience our world-class terrain with European style off-piste access by hiring a backcountry guide. They will show you the way and teach you how to travel safely in the backcountry while finding secret powder stashes the guides only know about.
Weather you are looking for the same thrills but off the ski slopes or want to explore the backcountry, the options are endless and there is something for everyone.
