Thanks to Emily Coleman of happyly for sharing this blog on activities you can do with your family to get into the great outdoors during the weekend!

The best part about spending winter in Jackson has to be the endless amounts of positive energy being emitted from every angle when it snows. There truly is no better place in the world to be cold! Though skiing is a what most of us think of when we think of powder days, there truly are tons of other opportunities for family winter fun in Jackson Hole. So we decided to compile a short list of affordable outdoor activities you and your littles might be interested in this weekend.
