Hiking and Mountain Biking
Hiking and mountain biking trails begin outside our door and extend into some spectacular land.
At the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, there is a seven-mile network of mountain bike trails to explore. The Teewinot chairlift enables you to hitch a ride with your mountain bike half-way up the mountain. You can also explore trails in the backcountry around Jackson Hole.
You can rent bikes and accessories from many shops in the area and set out on your own or hire guides for tips and instruction.
Specialty outfitters provide guided, half-day hiking or biking access through the hills and valleys of Jackson Hole. A guide will take you on stunning treks throughout the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
With stunning backdrops, the variety of paved and dirt roads and trails throughout Jackson Hole are an excellent way to see the landscape. The National Elk Refuge Road or the extensive paved pathways that run throughout the Jackson Hole valley are ideal options. Our Concierge is well-versed in road rides, so be sure to inquire!
Jackson Hole from the Big Skies
Whether you choose to fly high in a hot air balloon or float peacefully in a paraglider or a glider plane, seeing Jackson Hole by air is an unforgettable experience. Take in the expansive valley from a bird’s eye view and marvel at the mountains, meandering rivers and lush landscape.
Horseback is the best way to experience the romance of the Old West, explore deep into the back country, and climb high into the mountains. See stunning scenery while evoking the Old West. There are many outfitters, most offering full- or half-day rides.
Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, showcases some of the area’s most breathtaking views. This semi-private club is consistently ranked number one in the state of Wyoming by Golf Digest magazine. Located just 20 miles from us, the club offers a pro shop, golf instruction, club rentals, driving range and putting green.
Teton Pines is a full-service, semi-private championship golf course offering tee boxes of varying levels, many water features and large greens. This 18-hole course, opened in 1987, was designed by Arnold Palmer. Located just 5 miles from the Lodge, the course offers a pro shop, golf instruction, club rentals, driving range and putting green.
Rafting, Kayaking & Watersports
The Snake River offers calm waters for scenic floating and a dramatic canyon for whitewater excitement. High alpine lakes and ponds are found among the mountain peaks and have their own opportunities for adventure.
When you rent kayaking equipment, you can head out on your own or enlist a guide. Choose between the exciting descent of the Snake River or the gliding serenity of the alpine lakes in Grand Teton National Park.
Home to some of the world’s best trout fishing, the lakes and streams around us feature rainbow, brown and lake trout and one of the few remaining populations of wild cutthroat trout. There are a number of rivers in the area for you to choose from – Snake, Henry’s Fork, Gros Ventre, Green,s and Madison, among others.
