5 Must-Dos on Your Jackson Hole Honeymoon and Special Offer

After the hustle and bustle of your wedding day the real fun and adventure beginnings for you and your love! While we love Jackson Hole for any occasion we’ve rounded up our 5 favorite “must-dos” after “I do.”

1. Sunrise at Mormon Row

While you may be the type to sleep in during most vacations, we highly recommend getting up and at it early at least one day while in Jackson Hole. Grab a cup of coffee to go and head out to Mormon Row in the Gros Ventre Wilderness of Grand Teton National Park. The drive is just under 30 minutes from Snow King Resort to the famous TA Moulton Barn. Face the barn and the Tetons while the sun rises on your back you’ll see the dark night sky melt behind the mountain range as the front face of the mountains light up in pinks and purples. It is also a great spot for a newlywed photo session.

2. Hike Up Snow King Mountain

The region of Jackson Hole got its name because from the top of a mountain the valley looks like a hole in how it’s surrounded by mountains on nearly all sides. When you hike up to the top of Snow King Mountain it is very easy to see what the early fur trappers of the area meant by that. During the hike, you’ll gain 1,500′ in elevation over 3.8 miles. It’s a very well-trafficked route that locals and visitors alike enjoy all year round. Leashed dogs are also welcomed on this trail. Once you get to the top don’t forget to stay a few minutes and just take in the view! To save your knees a bit of work consider taking the gondola (coming 2022) down for a fee.

3. Side by Side Drive in Gros Ventre Wilderness

Are you a couple with the need for speed? In Teton County, Wyoming side-by-sides are street-legal vehicles. This means that once you reach the rental office and get outfitted you can be on your way! We recommend taking it out to the Gros Ventre Wilderness to see the wilder side of Jackson Hole that most people never do. Because it’s unguided feel free to go out as long or as short as you’d like. Our Adventure Center team can set you up with one of our partners to rent a side-by-side.

4. Dip at Astoria Hot Springs

Just around a 30-minute drive south of town, you’ll find the newly renovated Astoria Hot Springs. The soaking pools are naturally fed and contain 6+ mineral compounds such as magnesium, sulfur, and calcium. Long soaks in these natural springs have been said to help relax muscles and improve the soaker’s mood. Snacks and beverages are available for sale at the Astoria Hot Springs Park. Reservations are highly recommended as passes do sell out!

5. Dancing at Million Dollar Cowboy Bar

Whether you consider yourself a dancing queen or not we absolutely recommend trying to throw your partner round and round western style at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. It’s a bucket list item for pretty much anyone who comes to town and once you get there you’ll understand why. Pull up a saddle, order a local brew if you need some liquid courage, and then get to 2-stepping. There’s live music nearly 6 days a week throughout most of the year and on Thursdays, at 7 pm they host free western swing dancing lessons. Also note, you must be 21+ years to enter the Cowboy Bar- no exceptions!

Snocross :: The Greatest Show on the Snow Awaits in Jackson Hole This December

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.

Do Yourself a Favor and Head to Jackson Hole, Wyoming This Spring

Any given destination is lucky to be known for having a great “season,” whether that be winter, spring, summer or fall. Yet there are very few destinations in the U.S. that can boast being excellent year-round. Jackson Hole, Wyoming is one such place.

In the summer, Jackson Hole is known for fly fishing, white water rafting, and gorgeous hiking at either of the two National Parks that are next door neighbors – Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Autumn provides a gorgeous landscape, wonderful weather, and the chance to explore sans other people. Winter, of course, is known every epic winter sport ever.
