Winter has made its way to the Tetons, and Jackson Hole is gearing up for another year of family-friendly Christmas cheer. Our mountain town transforms every holiday season, covering everything with a blanket of snow as festive lights illuminate the town square. Spend your Jackson Hole Christmas taking a majestic sleigh ride through the mountains, ice skating with Santa, and spending quality time together in your Fireside Resort cabin.
Our luxury cabins in Jackson Hole offer the perfect place to spend the holidays, complete with your own cozy fireplace and kitchenette. Without further ado, here are a few of our favorite ways to spend the holidays in Jackson Hole:
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is your hub for winter activities and holiday fun in the Tetons. Spend your day skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, snow tubing, dog sledding, or snowshoeing before participating in Winter Fest activities such as:
December 21st: Head to the Teton Village ice skating rink and enjoy a free night of skiing! December 22nd: Participate in the Holiday Round-Up Scavenger Hunt by downloading the JH Insider app. December 23-24: Take advantage of ice skating with special guest Santa at the Teton Village's ice skating rink. December 24th: Christmas Eve offers a special Santa appearance, where he will rappel out of the Aerial Tram and collect last-minute letters. December 25th: Start your Christmas morning skiing with Santa!
One of our favorite holiday past-times in Jackson Hole is the opportunity to ride a horse-drawn sleigh through the mountains. The sleigh ride will take you into the Grand Tetons, where you can witness the largest migrating elk herd in North America, in addition to local wildlife like bald eagles, foxes, and bison. This magical adventure is sure to get everyone in the Christmas spirit!
