Arguably one of the most endearing qualities of Jackson Hole is that it is a year-round recreation hotspot. As much as we love the warmer seasons, there are many things to do in Jackson Hole during a winter retreat. While there is still plenty of ideal weather for fishing, hiking, and golf, we know many outdoor enthusiasts are anxiously awaiting skiing, snowmobiling, and sleigh rides. In a couple of months, the snow will begin to blanket the alpine forests and meadows, lending itself to a bevy of whimsical winter adventures. At Fireside Resort, we know the importance of a rejuvenating winter retreat and how challenging it can be to plan one. As such, we put together a brief list to help you navigate the myriad of available options.
Jackson Hole Winter Activities
With its towering mountain landscape and proximity to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, it's no surprise that the Jackson Hole area is "Wyoming's Playground." With pretty much every winter sport available, you won't be limited to enjoying yourself in spring, summer, and fall. Because there are so many great Jackson Hole winter activities, deciding how to spend your winter retreat can sometimes be overwhelming. Our list of possibilities will help you make an educated choice.
Cross country skiing is a great pastime for exploration and conditioning, especially for those who enjoy hiking, jogging and running. The folks at JH Nordic have extensive knowledge on finding the best trails, among other resources.
Downhill skiing and snowboarding are a massive draw for those hoping for an extreme winter retreat. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Grand Targhee Resort, and Snow King Mountain are all excellent destinations.
Snowmobiling might be the only thing more extreme than snowboarding and downhill skiing in these parts, so if you're looking for an adrenaline rush, reach out to Togwotee Adventures to "pull the throttle on adventure!"
On the other hand, sleigh rides offer a tranquil experience for those desiring a more relaxing glimpse of the snow-covered Tetons. Mill Iron Ranch will amaze you with awe-inspiring tours filled with tales of old west escapades and exciting wildlife.
