Jackson Hole Activities

Opening Day for Jackson Hole is Thursday November 28th! 

You can start prepping now to get your family ready for ski season. 

Lodging Reservations

Once you’ve picked the dates for your family vacation, visit our website and find the home or cabin with the perfect amenities to reserve your dates. The winter season is popular in Jackson Hole so don’t wait to reserve your lodging!

What to wear

If you haven’t seen snow yet where you live, you might not even know where you packed the ski pants, coats and gloves from last year. Kids seem to grow overnight so now is the time to check to make sure that everything still fits. Have fun with the family by shopping for needed gear now. Just looking through new colors of ski pants and jackets will get your kids excited about the coming season.

The Gear

Similar to outdoor clothing and accessories, if you own your own skis, poles, and snowboards, do all the pieces still fit? Lay all the gear out and make sure you have everything you need. Check to see if the boots still fit properly and repair the bindings if needed. It might be a good time to have the skis and snowboards waxed as well. 

Gear Rental

If you’re going to be renting the gear when you arrive in Jackson, check out the shop locations. Another option is to have JH Mountain Direct bring the skis and all the gear right to your door. They’ll make sure everything fits well for each member of the family so you know that everyone is ready for a great day on the slopes.


When you have a family to feed, it’s nice to know you have options while in Jackson Hole. Did you know that you can have groceries delivered right to your vacation rental? Mountains of Groceries will let you order online for groceries, prepared meals and even schedule a private chef. Planning to eat out instead? Spend time scoping out the different restaurants in Teton Village and the restaurants in town


With a little bit of planning, your family ski vacation to Jackson Hole will be the best trip yet.
