Winter Excursions

Bring along your family, friends, or someone special, and we'll take care of the rest.

Jackson Hole is so much more than a ski destination. The abundance of activities besides skiing will set your winter vacation here apart from any you’ve experienced before. Hop on a dog sled to ride and soak in a remote hot spring. Bundle up under blankets and take a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge to see thousands of elk up close. Discover the geothermal wonders and wildlife of snow-blanketed Yellowstone via snow-coach or snowmobile. Snowshoe through a forest of towering pine trees alongside a quietly running creek. Or, simply curl up by the fireplace at Hotel Jackson and get lost in a book.
