What Should I Do and Where Should I Go in Jackson Hole?

XC Skiing Grand Tetons

A couple of the questions we get asked a lot are “what should I do?” and “where should I go?” when I’m in Jackson Hole. This is especially true due to the lack of snowfall this winter… so far.

Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are great options for getting out there! You’ll have a blast exploring even if the conditions aren’t perfect!

Cross-Country Skiing in Jackson Hole:

Grand Teton National Park is great if you’re a beginner. The road isn’t groomed yet but, it’s a perfect place for great views of the Tetons!

Emily’s Pond Levee is very close to Jackson. It follows the shores of the Snake River and is about 2.1 miles, one-way. The terrain is mostly level so it’s equally great for beginners. You’ll have amazing views of the Tetons! And… It’s great for bringing along your furry friends!
