Sightseeing in Jackson Hole
Jackson Hole and the surrounding areas offer some of the most amazing scenic vistas and wildlife viewing of anywhere in America and Jackson Hole's scenery changes profoundly season to season.
During the winter; the peace and serenity of snow covered fields, hills, and mountains make for magnificent vistas and scenery.
You can explore the area on snowshoes, cross country skis or just by hiking.
Yellowstone National Park is open to snowcoaches and snowmobiles. Once in the park, be sure to take the time to walk around one of the guided areas such as West Thumb Geyser Basin.
Grand Teton National Park has reduced automobile access in the winter. The inner road from the Taggart Lake trail head, north of Moose, to the Jackson Lake Dam is closed during the winter. Access to these areas requires snowshoes or cross-country skis.
The outer road still provides great views of the range during the winter.
Another way to experience the mountains, even if you don't ski or snowbird, is to take a ride on the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram. The view from the top of Rendezvous Mountain will give you a different perspective on Jackson Hole.
