Located in northwest Wyoming near Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole is a 400-square-mile valley surrounded by the Gros Ventre and Teton mountain ranges.
Several towns are nestled within this valley, including Jackson, which boasts incredible dining, shopping and lodging options for those seeking a fun and relaxing escape to the mountains. Choose from a number of guided activities, such as horseback riding at the A-OK Corral, whitewater rafting along the Snake River or going on a scenic wildlife tour. Or create your own adventure by hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, fishing and more in the surrounding mountains and Bridger-Teton National Forest. Skiing is the major winter pastime around these parts, with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King and Grand Targhee all offering top-notch runs. For a unique winter experience, try dog sledding in Jackson Hole or visit the National Elk Refuge. The refuge provides a home for thousands of elk each winter and offers sleigh rides among the elk from mid-December through April.
