Home to just more than 300 people, Teton Village is an intimate Wyoming community. However, its location at the foot of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort means that there’s always someone new to meet in this town that is frequently bustling with tourists. The winter months are a particularly busy time, as skiers come from around the world to enjoy the slopes.

These are the top 5 things to do in Teton Village during the winter months:

  1. Take a ride on the Jackson Hole aerial tram. Those who want to get to the top of the mountain in a way that is quick and comfortable will love this tram ride. The views are particularly stunning during the winter months when snow covers the area.

  2. Enjoy a drive up to Teton Pass. Teton Pass is where the most beautiful vistas in Jackson Hole can be discovered. The drive can be steep and there is some climbing involved, but those who are up for the adventure feel it is well worth the effort.

  3. Relax on board a Grand Teton luxury van tour. Scenic Safaris offers a half-day tour of Grand Teton National Park, where a guide will take travelers to the top spots in the park for winter sightseeing.

  4. Go snowshoeing on a local trail. There are many trails in Jackson Hole, for both new and experienced snowshoers.

  5. Visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art. There are more than 25 galleries at this museum, making it a perfect indoor excursion in Jackson Hole.

Winter may be a popular time for skiers and snowboarders to head to Jackson Hole, but tourists often find that it’s a quieter time to explore the nearby national parks. Those who are interested in an up close and personal experience at Grand Teton National Park should consider booking a winter stay at Teton Village.
