12 Days of Jackson Hole Christmas: For the Adventurer

The odds are high there is someone in your life that loves nothing more than an all day, exhilarating, physically exhausting adventure. Rest assured, there are local businesses that can point me in the right direction, supply me with enough knowledge to sound cool and sell me the perfect Christmas gift for my adventure buddy. And they can do the same for you too.

While I have my own agenda of choice adventures, there are some I simply lack knowledge in. Snowmobiling, rock climbing, ice fishing to name a few. I would hate to deprive my ice fishing fanatic friend of a great, practical gift solely due to my lack of knowledge on the adventure type.

JD High Country Outfitters is located right off the square and sells one of the largest selections of performance apparel in Jackson Hole – the perfect place to pick up warm layers, socks, hats, gloves, fishing lures...whatever may be needed for a day of ice fishing. Check out everything they offer at I’d recommend moseying on over to their physical location at 50 E Broadway. To this day, I’ve yet to walk through their big, adventurous doors without being greeted by a smiling and willing to help face.

If high speed, wind-blown and helmet hair resonate louder with your adventure buddy, Scenic Safaris may be the place for you to snag the perfect gift. Scenic Safaris is one of the top outdoor and wildlife tour companies in Jackson, Wyoming. As of this year, it has the largest fleet of snowmobiles in the country! Other than buying an actual snowmobile, I’m not sure what’s better than the gift of a guided snowmobiling trip. Give Scenic Safari’s a call at 307.734.8898, visit their location at 545 N Cache Drive or take a gander at to set up a gift card for the most epic Christmas present.

If neither of these options feel like the golden ticket to the perfect adventure gift, head on over to the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole to give the gift of giving – a gift you simply can not go wrong with. While there are 195 active nonprofits in Jackson, you could choose an organization that helps support continued adventures for others. For example, Rendezvous Park (R Park)  which enriches the community by providing people of all ages and backgrounds a place to interact with and appreciate nature conveniently located in our valley and free to all. Contact the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole. The organization is well known for Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charity, but donations may be given any time of year! Find them at to give the gift that keeps on giving.
