No matter what time of year you visit Jackson Hole, you’ll find no shortage of fun activities to keep you busy. In fact, there’s so much to do here, you could probably visit during every season and have a completely different experience each time! Here are some common questions we get from visitors planning their trips to Jackson Hole.
What Is the Best Month to Visit Wyoming?
The answer to this question depends on what you want to do. Do you and your family love winter sports like downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowboarding? If that’s the case, then you’ll want to visit Jackson Hole during the winter months. Your best chances of visiting when there’s snow on the ground are in December, January, and February; November and March are iffier and sometimes if you’re very lucky, you might encounter snow during the last half of October and the first half of April.
As with many other vacation destinations in the United States, June through August are the most popular months for visiting Wyoming. The weather is warm, kids are out of school, and it’s the perfect time for partaking in outdoor activities like hiking, exploring national parks, mountain biking, and, of course, rafting. Whether you’re interested in the adventure of white water rafting Jackson Hole or a leisurely Snake River float trip where you can enjoy the scenery and spot local wildlife, our offerings are popular with all visitors to the area, from scouts, family reunions, and even wedding groups.
That’s not to say that you shouldn’t visit in fall or spring either, though—although the weather is a bit cooler, there are fewer tourists during these times, so if you’re not fond of crowds, this might be the perfect time to plan your trip. Our whitewater rafting and scenic float trips both run during spring and fall months too.
What Is Jackson Hole Famous For?
Jackson Hole is best known for skiing and snowboarding. In fact, Jackson Hole is considered to have some of the best terrain in North America for these winter sports and the ski resorts in town are a testament to how popular winter activities are in the area.
Winter sports are not the only reason to love Jackson Hole. There’s the scenic Snake River, the mountains, national parks, and even a lively arts scene in the city.
How Many Days Do You Need in Grand Teton?
Most visitors plan for spending two or three days in Grand Teton National Park, but it depends on how much you enjoy outdoor activities, what else you have planned for your trip, and how long your stay in Jackson Hole is.
What Is the Best Time of Year to Visit Grand Teton National Park?
To get the most out of your trip, it’s best to visit between mid-May and late September. During this time, all of the park’s activities, visitor centers, and hiking trails are open and available to the general public.
