Winter Activities!

While Jackson Hole is famous for the world class skiing and snowboarding available at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the area also boasts other unique winter activities suited for the whole family. Our front desk staff had a chance to experience some of these activities for themselves this season, and are eager to share with you their recommendations on how to spend a cold winter day in the Hole…

Jalene recommends checking out some of the activities that Snow King Sports and Events center has to offer throughout winter. Located at the base of Snow King Mountain, near the center of town, Snow King Sports and Events center hosts Jackson Hole’s very own hockey team, Jackson Moose, all season long. They typically play on Friday and Saturday nights, but go to to check when they are in town. These games are always a good time, and local food and beer vendors are on site to quench your thirst and/or appetite. Be sure to look for Knuckles the mascot! If hockey games aren’t your thing, you can also use this same ice rink for ice skating. The rink is open to the public Monday through Friday from 12pm-2pm, and fun for all ages!


If you love animals and are looking for a definitely unique experience, Tricia recommends checking out Jackson Hole Iditarod Sled Dog Tours. We definitely recommend the full day tour they offer, as you get to experience the beauty of Granite Hot Springs, and soak in the hot water after a long day of being pulled by Alaskan racing sled dogs. Lunch is included, and this type of tour is an excellent opportunity to witness a variety of wildlife that Wyoming has to offer. They even offer an orientation session to more adventurous travelers who wish to “drive” their own team of dogs. Call them at 800-554-7388.

No matter which winter activity you choose, rest assured knowing that once you return to town, there are a wide variety of world-class restaurants, night-life options, and art galleries to round out your stay!
