Famous for being a winter wonderland, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has quite a big secret that many people aren’t aware of. Listen closely; we don’t want everyone to know! Summertime in Jackson is an equally magnificent time to visit.
Summer in Jackson Hole
Though skiing and snowboarding are no longer available, activities such as fly fishing, mountain biking, and high ropes courses are on deck, instead! Seriously, summertime in Jackson is like a breath of fresh air intermingled with a sense of adventure. Since it’s just around the corner and we can hardly wait, here are some epic summer happenings we’re looking forward to, and we hope you can take a trip and join us!
Learn How to Cast
Arguably one of the most challenging fishing techniques is the fly fishing cast, and there are plenty of experts in Jackson to help you perfect it! Whether you’ve never cast before, or have been working on your cast for decades, sign up for one of the Thursday evening lessons at Snow King Resort where the expert instructors will teach you the tricks of the trade.
Do it Up “Big” With The Big King Pass
As mentioned, the mountains usually reserved for whizzing down on a board or skis, turn into a whole new kind of playground during the summer months. Head to Snow King Mountain with your Big King Pass in tow and enjoy a tour through the Treetop Adventure, unlimited rides on all activities including the epic Cowboy Coaster, mini-golf, a turn down the Alpine Slide, and much, much more! See the mountain from every angle and view possible.
Time to Raft
If you’re looking for raw adventure, it doesn’t get much closer to that than whitewater rafting on the Snake River in Jackson. Rafting, in our humble opinion, is one of the best ways to be immersed in the surrounding natural beauty. Not only are you on the water, but you’ll raft through incredible scenery that will take your breath away. There are a variety of trips for all levels and interests; we highly recommend the 8-mile trip down the Snake River.
Fly With The Eagles
Seeing Jackson from the tip of a mountain or atop a raft down the river provide incredible perspectives, but perhaps none are quite so spectacular as the view Eagle’s are treated to. Which, as it happens, you can experience as well! Get strapped in and launch into the sky on a guided paragliding trip off the tip of Snow King Mountain. Each instructor is extremely experienced and will ensure you have the fly of a lifetime!
It’s Still The Wild West
Cell phones, GoPros, and Netflix may exist in Jackson, but there’s still plenty of wild west left around town. The rodeo has been a part of Jackson since the first settlers arrived over a century ago and is likely to remain that way until the end of time. If you can’t wait to catch a peek of the rodeo and all the experts involved in it, head to the rodeo grounds in town on any given Wednesday or Saturday during the summer months.
There’s a never-ending supply of adventure in Jackson, especially during the summer. We’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible during your summer vacation. Even if you visited for the entire summer, you wouldn’t run out of new activities and adventures to experience. Of course, in between all of your adventuring, you may want a few moments of relaxation. We pride ourselves on making your relaxation possible and thoroughly enjoyable here at Snow King Resort. From resting in your luxurious resort room to having a soak in the outdoor hot tub, spend your in-between moments savoring the memories and experiences. Book your stay today, and we’ll look forward to helping you plan out your wild west getaway!
