Suggested Jackson Hole Winter Itineraries

Here are some suggested Jackson Hole winter itineraries by personality. Perfect for planning your daily Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park adventures.
Grand Tetons Winter

There is so much to see and do in Jackson Hole, it’s hard to know where to start. So we’ve created some day-long itineraries for you to choose from depending on your personality, or on how you might be feeling on any given winter day.

Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris Fox

Wildlife Lover

Begin your day with a sunrise, 4-hour, wildlife expedition tour. Make this one of the first activities you do on your trip so you can know where to look for wildlife during the rest of your visit. After your tour, enjoy lunch at Palate at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, overlooking the National Elk Refuge. Midday, take an hour-long, horse-drawn sleigh ride on the refuge. Then drive on the elk refuge road and look for the bighorn sheep. For dinner, head over to The Gun Barrel for local game or fish as a hearty, winter meal. Fun fact: The restaurant was formerly the Wyoming Wildlife Museum, so there’s that to go along with the wildlife theme!


Plan to start your day with breakfast at the Alpine House Lodge and Cottages, owned by former winter Olympians and current mountain guides. Now that you're properly fueled up, embark on a morning backcountry excursion with guides from the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Exum Mountain Guides or Jackson Hole Mountain Guides. Grab a late lunch or hearty snack from Dornan's. Midday, rent snowshoes or cross country skis to take a tour around Taggart Lake in Grand Teton National Park. For dinner, eat at StillWest Brewery and Grill, followed by night skiing at "The King."

National Elk Refuge Sleigh Ride

Whole Family

Grab some breakfast at The Bunnery before embarking on the unforgettable experience of a half-day, guided snowmobile trip to Granite Hot Springs. Soak in the thermal pool there for a short spell before heading back to Town Square for a late lunch and a little shopping. Later in the day, go over to Snow King for a ride on the Cowboy Coaster and snow tubing down the hill. For dinner, check out some authentic Jackson Hole history and the amazing burgers at Jackson Drug (our local diner on Town Square), then finish your day with ice skating across the street under the twinkly lights.


Start your day of culinary delights with a breakfast of seasonal and local ingredients at Whistling Grizzly restaurant in the Wyoming Inn. On your way to the ski slopes,  stop into Bodega in Teton and pick up Bovine + Swine artisanal sausages for an apres-ski treat. Ski to lunch at the Westbank Grill for a fine dining slopeside experience in Teton Village. After tackling the powdery trails go into town and visit Vertical Harvest, an amazing, three-story hydroponic farm that grows and sells vegetables year-round to the Jackson area and directly to the public via its on-site store. At the end of the day, treat yourself to dinner at the White Buffalo Club or Snake River Grill on Town Square.

Spring Creek Ranch


Stay at Spring Creek Ranch above the town of Jackson with arguably the best Teton views. Enjoy a day off the slopes and go on a half-day, private Iditarod-style dog sled tour with Continental Divide Dogsled Adventureslunch included. After your dog sled adventure, share a romantic his-and-her massage at the Four Seasons Spa. Plan on taking a sunset wildlife van tour with one of the valley’s local guides through parts of Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton Forest—it's the stuff memories are made of—and you’ll learn about the ecology and geology of the Jackson Hole area, too. Bonus!  Top off your day with a candle-lit dinner for two at the cozy Blue Lion, famous for its rack of lamb.

The High Roller

Book your luxury vacation residence on the West Bank, in Shooting Star or Teton Village with RMR Luxury Collections. Start your morning with an amazing, scenic helicopter tour with Wind River Air. Indulge in a chef-curated private dining experience at SUDA Izakaya's entire upstairs terrace and bar, right off Town Square. Book private yoga instruction for the afternoon with Akasha Yoga at their studio or in your residence. Dinner can also be a private dining option at Ringholz Gallery; Provisions JH will cater this exclusive event. Continue the exclusivity in the VIP area at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar.
