A 20-minute scenic drive away, Amangani’s ski lounge sits in the heart of Teton Village in Jackson Hole, just steps from the Bridger Gondola and Aerial Tram. It provides ski-in ski-out access to Rendezvous and Après Vous Mountains, as well as an expert ski concierge service and refreshments. For further thrills, soar over 305,000 acres of snow-carpeted terrain by helicopter, taking in the peaks of Snake River and Palisades, as well as portions of the Hoback, Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges. Spend the day heli-skiing or the chance to swoop down 12,000–15,000 feet on otherwise inaccessible slopes – or try guided cross-country skiing for another high-energy option.
Wildlife and snowshoeing expeditions
Explore the winter wildlife of Jackson Hole with an experienced guide, who can reveal the secrets of interpreting animal tracks. Sightings can include moose, elk, white-tailed deer, mule deer and coyote. Alternatively, half-day snowshoeing adventures take guests deep into the backcountry, with ample opportunity for wildlife viewing.
Fat Tire Biking
Contrary to what one might think, cycling in the winter is quite a popular activity thanks to the introduction of fat tire mountain bikes. These ultra light weight, stud tire bikes provide a whole new experience to the cycling enthusiast. Explore the National Elk Refuge, Grand Teton National Park or the backside of the Tetons at Grand Targhee Resort as you pedal yourself across the snow trails.
Fun for families
In the bright winter sunshine, dog sledding, sleigh rides and snowmobiling expeditions prove exhilarating experiences for guests of all ages. Horse-drawn sleigh rides across the snowy landscape can be arranged for any time of the day or night – cozy blankets, hot chocolate, bells and all. Ice skating is a great activity for families or anyone looking for an activity to do away from the slopes with outdoor and indoor ice rinks available in the valley.
