A Complete Guide to Winter Activities in Jackson

Moose in front of Tetons
As winter arrives in Jackson Hole, our mountain town is transformed into an awe-inspiring snowy landscape. The backdrop of the snow-capped Grand Tetons as moose migrate across the silent valley creates certain magic that you can't find anywhere else. There are endless ways to celebrate winter, whether it's snowshoeing through the National Parks or skiing down exhilarating trails. No matter what adventure you are after, Fireside Resort is the perfect base camp to rest while you explore the best Jackson Hole winter activities.

Skiing and Snowboarding

There are three incredible ski and snowboard resorts you can visit during your Wyoming winter getaway. The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has often been referred to as the number one ski resort in North America due to its expert terrain and incredible runs. The Grand Targhee Resort features over 2,000 acres of skiable terrain and is known for its light powder snow and cat skiing.
If you are traveling on a family vacation and looking for skiing and snowboarding for all abilities, consider Snow King Mountain Resort. There is also snow tubing here and a mountain roller coaster that the whole family will love!

Winter Tours

Depending on your interests, you can choose from several winter tours in Jackson Hole. Nature lovers can embark on a series of tours with Wildlife Safaris. These tours are the best way to explore Grand Teton National Park and spot moose, bison, fox, golden eagles, and wolves. And if you want to see Wyoming's backcountry on a thrilling, fast-paced adventure, then choose a snowmobiling tour with Togwotee Adventures. The National Elk Refuge Sleigh Rides are some of the most popular Jackson Hole winter activities. The sleigh ride will allow you to see thousands of elk set amongst breathtaking views of the Grand Tetons.

Snowshoeing & Cross County Skiing

With over 170 inches of snow falling on Grand Teton National Park, this is an ideal destination for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. If you want to go out on your own, we recommend renting your gear from Skinny Skis and checking out the Jenny Lake, Swan Lake, or Taggart Lake trails. Another option is the Snake River Dike between Jackson and Wilson, where you can snowshoe past beautiful forest and river views. If you aren't comfortable hitting the trails on your own, choose one of the snowshoe tours in Jackson Hole.
