Winter activities in Jackson Hole

jackson holeWelcome to beautiful Wyoming and the fantastic scenery of Jackson Hole. You’ve come for the fun and excitement offered here for all winter time enthusiasts.

Just think of all the fun you’ll have on the thousands of acres of skiable area surrounding the Jackson Hole hotels and resorts. You’ll find nearly 400 acres right next to the town of Jackson and over 4000 acres just 12 miles away at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. That includes a large sway of in bounds and back country area. Plenty of lifts are also there to get you up where you belong – on the slopes!

Fine dining and carousing await any traveler in the town bars and saloons. Prepare yourself for a night of line dancing, drinking, social highlights and more as you wind your way through these numerous, and reputable, locations. You’ll never want for things to do while in town or on the mountainsides. Also, if you are feeling a little lazier than the average skier, than consider taking a break and enjoying a slow morning with a cup of hot cocoa or a comfortable evening sleigh ride snuggled up with a partner. You’ll discover that there is no end to the fun and life-enhancing experiences found in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Then you stop and think: sometimes, despite it being a vacation from life, we’ve brought the children along for the ride. Worst off, you dragged then with you, but forgot to make a few destination stops for them. Have no fear because Jackson Hole is packed with excitement for them too. Consider the following options of things to do with the little bambinos while in the area.

Stop by the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum. It contains plenty of interesting fun for the kids. Until the end of December they feature a river exhibit which is comprised of a large tank filled with the local aquatic life. You’ll even see the rare blue cutthroat trout that is indigenous to the area. During the winter months the museum sports a Snow Patrol exhibit with hands on fun like the drivable snowplow, mock pro-skiing, and a model of ski resorts. There’s even a club house with cooking and other activities on Saturdays.

Like the adults, of course, the children are welcome to join in the skiing and other winter sport fun. With milder slopes available for beginners and more advanced slopes for the experienced downhill runners, the kids can be safely entertained, and get exercise, right nearby. They can ice skate in the local rinks, snowshoe along the winter trails and creeks, go snow tubing, and take a sleigh ride through the elk herds.

Naturally after all that fun, they like yourself will be hankering for some grub. Luckily with the resorts, Jackson Hole hotels, and local diners, your crew will be maintained and more through top notch local cuisine and good old fashioned American grilling (yep, we mean hamburgers ’cause what kid wants a fancy meal?). These family friendly dining locals will make sure you are fed and content every day.
