America’s favorite holiday, or one of them at least, is just around the corner. The birth of the United States is an exciting occasion to celebrate, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming is proud to offer a packed itinerary of fun. There’s something extra invigorating and celebratory about being surrounded by the Gran Tetons while celebrating the 4th. It could be because the mountains are a powerful emblem of this great nation, or perhaps it’s the raw nature, a true picture of what our country is outside of the cities.
What could be better than a mountain town in the summertime? Listening to live music in a mountain town in the summertime! Not just any town, but none other than the magnificent, Grand Teton flanked outdoor adventure mecca that is Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Snow-covered mountains and glittering lights spread throughout town square sprinkled with some holiday joy, and you’ve got a recipe for magic!

The most popular form of snowmobile racing, Snocross, lands in Jackson Hole for the first time ever this December.
Similar to Motocross, Snocross trades the motorcycles for snowmobiles and the dirt track for a snow, or ice, racetrack. Otherwise, the concept is quite similar to athletes on snowmobiles race around a track filled with tight turns, banked corners, incredibly steep jumps, and challenging obstacles. You’ll feel your heart pounding in your chest as you watch the racers launch off 30-foot jumps soaring as high as 130 feet into the air. The adrenaline is pumping, the crowd energetic, and the atmosphere exhilarating; welcome to the Jackson Hole Snocross National.
