Bright, frosty adventures and cozy moments among snow-covered peaks await during Jackson Hole's longest season.
Come winter, some local wildlife like black and grizzly bears go into hibernation. Other animals (elk, moose, wolves, bison) move to lower ground seeking milder conditions. And then there are Jackson Hole’s human inhabitants and visitors, who thrive in this season. From world-class inbound and backcountry skiing to quiet adventures in snowy national parks, and days that end in front of the fire with a warm drink in hand, what isn't there to love about the boundless winter experiences Jackson has to offer?
Teton Valley, Idaho, is Jackson Hole’s sister community, located just a scenic drive over Teton Pass in the eastern part of Idaho.
