There’s a different side of the Tetons to discover when the ski areas close for the season. You can celebrate springtime in Jackson Hole with fun events and outdoor adventures for all. As the snow melts, folks enjoy all the outdoor activities the warmer weather brings to the valley. It’s always exciting when the roads to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone open for the season. Kids of all ages look forward to spotting the baby animals that appear throughout the area.

Celebrate Wapiti and Wilderness During the Jackson Hole ElkFest: May 16-17, 2015!
ElkFest, a weekend of activities built around the 48th Annual World Famous Jackson Hole Boy Scout Elk Antler Auction, is an exciting time for celebrating nature, outdoor skills, hunting and ecological education, and awareness. Every spring, thousands of elk, wintering on the National Elk Refuge, lose their antlers before they migrate to their summer range. The Boy Scouts assist the Refuge staff with harvesting the shed antlers, and then auction them off to bidders from around the world, who turn them into furniture, wall decorations, jewelry, and food products. This annual event, which includes the High Noon Chili Cook-Off, and the Mountain Man Rendezvous kick-off, supports the National Elk Refuge with a large portion of the auction proceeds going to habitat enhancement projects on the Refuge.
