It is definitely Christmas time in Teton Village, Wyoming. Take a quick stroll along the winding paths at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and you’ll feel the festive cheer. The Village glitters at night with holiday lights and the atmosphere is fantastic! Teton Mountain Lodge is the perfect place for families to stay during a Christmas-time trip to Jackson Hole. The slopes are just steps from the Teton Mountain Lodge doors, and the conditions this year are as good as any December we can remember. Plus, there are a handful of holiday events in Teton Village tailored to families. Here are a few handpicked events happening during the holidays that we think families will love:
