Hill Climb 2017

Huge crowds are anticipated for the 41st Annual World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb coming soon, March 24 and 25,  2017.  The Jackson Hole Snow Devils will once again host this exciting event, which promises to be one of the best yet!  Every year this event grows, with crowds flooding the town as machines struggle to get up the 1500 ft. vertical rise mountain that is aptly named "Snow King".

The Jackson Hole Snow Devils have already started the extensive planning to make this an unforgettable experience for both the racing fans and the spectators. The event will be televised on two JumboTrons, one located right at the base of Snow King Mountain and the other one located inside the ball field.  Food and beer concessions will be open along with an Official Hill Climb merchandise tent.  Related vendor tents will be showing their merchandise as well.

You will not be disappointed.  Like many people before, you will want to return year after year!!

Winter in Yellowstone

Luxury and excellence await at the Wyoming Inn of Jackson Hole.  Let your winter adventure begin at the # 1 rated Ski Resort in North America or visit neighboring Grand Targhee Ski Resort.

Winter in Yellowstone means fewer crowds, frigid temperatures, and steaming geyser basins. Skis, snowshoes, snowcoaches, and snowmobiles become the primary modes of transportation as roads close, rivers and lakes freeze, and snowstorms transform the park into a winter wonderland.

Restricted vehicle access and limited services make winter visits challenging. In a sense, coming during winter resembles visiting before the age of automobiles. People arrive at an entrance, then take a snowcoach or snowmobile (instead of a horse-drawn carriage) in order to see the park.

Every year in early November, most park roads close to regular traffic as we prepare for the winter season. The only exception is the road between Mammoth Hot Springs and the northeast entrance, which is open to regular traffic all year. Once enough snow accumulates (usually by mid-December), roads open to “oversnow” travel only. This means the only way to visit Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and other popular destinations during winter is by guided snowmobile or snowcoach, or through our non-commercially guided snowmobile program. Oversnow travel ends in mid-March, when our plowing crews begin clearing a winter’s worth of snow. Roads start re-opening to normal cars in mid-April.

Most stores, restaurants, campgrounds, and lodges are closed during winter. A few visitor centers remain open, and we also maintain a series of warming huts throughout the park. Ranger-led programs are offered at Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs. Park partners and other businesses offer a variety of guided activities and trips during winter.
