Nestled between the Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges, and bisected by the Snake River, Jackson Hole is located in far northwest Wyoming, right on the state’s border with Idaho. Jackson Hole is a valley about 42 miles long and 8 miles wide; while Jackson is the valley’s most populous town. Here are three great ways to chill out there this President’s Weekend. 1. Hit the Slopes Often referred to as one of the top ski spots in North America, Jackson Hole is home to the impressive Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Grand Targhee Ski Resort and Snow King Ski Area. Together, the three resorts are offering a tonne of fun this President’s Weekend. From skiing and boarding to snowshoeing and winter eco tours, there’ll be plenty of activities available on the slopes. 2. Take a Sleigh Ride What could be more magical than taking a horse-drawn sleigh ride among an elk herd numbering in the thousands? A winter sleigh ride to the National Elk Refuge is one of the most thrilling winter activities in the Jackson Hole area for nature-lovers. Simply pull on your winter gear and buy your ticket at the Jackson Hole Visitor Center. Take the free shuttle bus to the sleigh boarding area, just three miles north of Jackson, hop on your sleigh and prepare for some seriously unique photo opportunities. 3. Relax by the Fireplace After a day of elk-spotting or playing on the slopes, relax and enjoy some downtime by your very own fireplace in a King Fireplace Room at the retreat-style Wyoming Inn in the Grand Teton mountain range. This elegant 380-square-foot room boasts everything you need to relax after a day exploring Jackson Hole, from complimentary Wi-Fi to a roaring gas fireplace to cozy up beside.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
