Skiing

Grand Teton National Park lures cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and backcountry skiers, while the ski resorts in the surrounding communities provide acres of inbound runs. It is an amazing winter getaway for families that love to go on adventures together.

Some of the best ski resorts here include:

  • Jackson Hole Mountain Resort that lets visitors make the most of the 4,139 feet of vertical rise covered with 459 inches of average snowfall each season. The best time to visit is from November to start of April.
  • Snow King Mountain Resort. This one has the honor of being the first ski area of the Grand Teton National Park. Open from December to April, this town hill is famous for night skiing and snow tubing opportunities.
  • Grand Targhee Mountain Resort offers two mountain peaks spread over 2500 acres of skiable land featuring over 500 inches of snow annually. Come here between end of November and early April for an epic skiing adventure.

The Grand Teton National Park is not responsible for marking any of the ski or snow shoe trails. The park visitors are themselves in charge for finding the best routes during their skiing adventures. It is imperative that caution be exercised at all times because snow storms can strike suddenly and without warning.
