1) Skiing and snowboarding is the obvious attraction and skiers and boarders alike will appreciate the over 2 500 acres of ski terrain spread across several peaks in the Teton range.

2) For vacationers willing to travel, just 90 miles north of Jackson is Yellowstone National Park. Seize the opportunity to snowmobile along the snow-covered roads of this famous park, sighting a variety of wildlife and Old Faithful geyser.

3) Adventure enthusiasts will love the thrill of heli-skiing, offering skiing in 5 mountain ranges surrounding Jackson Hole. Perfect for small groups, there is always the promise of untracked snow and glorious mountain views.

While nestled in the heart of Bridge Teton National forest enjoy the gourmet meals prepared for you and relax in the solitude of the backcountry.

9) For a more romantic feel, take a sleigh ride through Teton Village or onto the National Elk Refuge and experience Jackson Hole's amazing variety of winter wildlife and scenery in an intimate, up-close setting.
