Top things to do in Jackson Hole when you’re not skiing

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is known for incredible skiing and snowboarding, but this resort is more than just steep runs and technical terrain. If your idea of a vacation is not spending all day on the mountain, Jackson Hole has plenty to offer beyond the base of the slopes to make it your dream destination.

Learn from the best instructors on the ski slopes

While Jackson Hole gets its reputation from the sheer amount of expert terrain the mountain hosts, what goes unnoticed is that the resort is also home to some of the most beginner-friendly runs out there.

Three lifts, each with gradual increases in difficulty, set the stage for a perfect learning progression. The daily resort capacity limits the number of guests in the resort, so you can enjoy wide-open runs and avoid feeling like you are dodging people at every turn. 

There’s no better way to start your snow sports journey than with Jackson Hole’s world-renowned Mountain Sports School. These incredible instructors will have you feeling confident on the slopes in no time. The Jackson Hole instructors are ready to work with you and help you level up at your own pace by offering personalised group lessons with small class sizes or individualised private lessons.

Eat on top of the world

Almost as legendary as Corbet’s Couloir is the top of the world waffles at Corbet’s Cabin. Ride the iconic Aerial Tram on a sightseeing ticket to try a gourmet waffle at 10,450 feet.

Or grab drinks with a view from the top of Bridger Gondola at Rendezvous Lodge and enjoy panoramic views of the valley below while you relax in the comfort of Piste Mountain Bistro.

Adventures beyond skiing

Skiing and snowboarding may be the most well-known, but they are only the beginning of the adventures in Jackson Hole; the base of the slopes boasts countless activities and experiences everyone will love.

Just steps from the resort sit Call of the WYld, offering private dogsled tours with views of the Tetons. Call of the WYld’s friendly guides and even friendlier dogs take you on a one-hour adventure through Jackson Hole’s breathtaking scenery.

Infused with authentic Western flare, Jackson Hole boasts an eclectic selection of designer boutiques, galleries, and shops for outdoor gear that will appeal to every visitor – be it jewellery, fashion, and one-of-a-kind souvenirs.
