Unofficial Guide to Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Things To Do in Jackson Hole (yup, there’s alot to do here)

Go Skiing

Jackson Hole is the Capital of American Big Mountain Skiing, and has pulled in plenty of titles to prove it.

Here are just a couple:


Skiing not your thing? Well there’s no excuse to not check out the tram. It is probably the coolest and most modern looking tram in america and named the #3 best ski lift in the world.

Jackson Wyoming’s Town Hill is steep and uncrowded. According to this guy, on the right day, “the king” can be just as fun as the big resort.

It’s always a powder day at Targhee, just go see for yourself.

Check Out the National Parks
Go Swimming

Grand Teton National Park is Jackson’s back yard and has enough swimming territory for everyone to take a dip this summer. String Lake, Phelps, Jackson Lake, No Name Lake, Taggart Lake.

Hot Springs

Okay, but lets not kid ourselves, swimming in JH is not a winter activity, however, due to proximity to thermal hot spot, Yellowstone, there are a bunch of hot springs that are easily accessible and the perfect way to ease those throbbing quads after a day doing tram laps. Try Granite or Huckleberry Hot Springs .

Climb

Climbing is a popular summertime activity for Jacksonites as the area boasts a variety of sport climbing locations, such as black tail butte as well as opportunities for heart pounding trad climbs. The area’s climbing gym, Enclosure, allows local climbers to keep their upper bodies in shape year round.
