It’s January and if you view the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort webcams, you will see snow, snow and more snow! After a few days of enjoying the slopes, it’s time to find some hot springs to rest and relax those muscles. Check out these different locations for hot springs around Jackson.
Visiting Granite Hot Springs in the winter is an experience you definitely want to add to your vacation plans. Located in Bridger-Teton National Forest approximately 30 miles south of the town of Jackson, the only way to get to the Springs during the winter months is by snowmobile, dog sled, cross country skiing, or fat tire biking. This outdoor pool provides breathtaking views and soothing water.
Astoria Hot Springs and Park is located just south of Jackson, Wyoming, near Hoback. While Astoria Hot Springs itself isn’t new, (the original park opened in the 1950s), construction has recently been completed that updated facilities and several pools. Advance reservations are highly recommended because there is a maximum capacity for each session and passes do sell out.
A 90-minute drive west of Jackson will take you to Heise Hot Springs. With outdoor hot spring pools at 104 degrees plus a regular indoor warm water pool at 92 degrees, everyone in the group can enjoy the water. The hot pools are open Labor Day until the Thursday before Memorial Weekend and closed through the month of November: Monday - Friday: 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Saturday & Sunday: 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
If you’re heading north through Yellowstone, drive just southeast of Bozeman, MT to Chico Hot Springs. This resort was established in 1900. It’s tucked against the foothills in the wide-open Paradise Valley, which provides a true get-away experience.
Just 2-½ hours from Jackson is Lava Hot Springs. Open every day except for Thanksgiving and Christmas, Lava Hot Springs provides 5 outdoor hot spring mineral pools, an indoor aquatic center, and an Olympic size outdoor pool during the summer.
Enjoy any one of these fabulous hot springs locations - it’ll be a treat for you and your family and friends!
