Memorable Winter Activities You Will Not Forget in Jackson Hole

For wintertime travelers, few places can compare to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Surrounded by the untouched scenery of the Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges, it is unquestionably one of the most breathtaking places in the American West. And once the weather turns cold, Jackson Hole becomes one of the country's most in-demand wintertime travel destinations.   Here are just a few of our favorite things to do in Jackson Hole in the winter – including unforgettable experiences for every kind of traveler.  

Hit the slopes

Hitting the snowy slopes
  Jackson Hole is known for its world-class skiing and snowboarding, boasting some of the finest powder, hundreds of different runs, and over a thousand acres of skiable terrain – no wonder it's one of the most popular winter destinations in North America!   The community's high elevation means it receives hundreds of inches of snowfall yearly, creating the perfect conditions for skiers and snowboarders alike.   Consistently named among the best ski destinations in the world, Jackson Hole offers a European-style experience in the U.S. – the only one of its kind.   You can find a broad range of options, with runs for everyone, ranging from beginners to experts. For experts, Snow King Mountain, often called "Town Hill," has one of the steepest sustained pitches in the lower 48, with 16 different trails.   Ski passes sell out quickly, mainly because ticket sales are limited to preserve the experience's quality and natural surroundings. While peak travel days are often booked months in advance, securing passes for off-peak weeks is much easier.  

Take a tour

Jackson Hole tours offer a unique opportunity to gain a new perspective on this breathtaking region, whether you're a first-time visitor or a repeat guest. Options range from wildlife expeditions to dog sledding tours, so there's always something for you to discover.    Thanks to the flexibility of various tours in Jackson Hole, you can easily select an experience that aligns with your travel plans and interests. For example, spend an entire day on a dog sledding tour through Grand Teton National Park or enjoy a few hours on a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge.    With Yellowstone National Park closed to vehicular traffic during winter, it's also the perfect time to take a snowmobile tour through the world-famous park. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is undoubtedly one of the most memorable things to do in Jackson Hole in the winter.  

Relax at the spa - or the hot springs

Many luxury spas and wellness centers are available throughout Jackson Hole, providing a wonderful way to balance outdoor recreation with some peaceful moments of zen.    Treat yourself to a massage, a professional facial, or any of the other spa services available to feel refreshed and ready for your next adventure.   Granite Hot Springs is a can't-miss spot in Jackson Hole and somewhere you'll definitely want to include in your winter itinerary. The naturally heated water in the springs will warm you up even on the chilliest of days − enjoy a long soak surrounded by snow-covered slopes.
