Six Ways to Spend Your Weekends Outside this Winter

Thanks to Emily Coleman of Happy Active Family 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. We recommend:

  • Cache Creek - Walk around the beautiful Cache Creek area and look for wildlife, babbling creeks, and snowballs to be thrown.
  • Snow King Magic Carpet - The whole family can enjoy the magic carpet for only $10! It’s a great place to learn to ski or snowboard if you’ve never done it. It’s also fun for little learners too! You can walk to the bottom as well and ride up if you only want to supervise and not ski! It’s quick and easy.
  • Ice Skating - Ice skate on Jackson’s iconic Town Square while enjoying romantic music and beautiful lights! Rentals are $5 with a local ID and $10 without. Or bring your own and skate for free! M-F 4pm-9pm and Sat-Sun 12pm-9pm. If you’re in Teton Village, from 3pm-9pm you can skate on the commons too! $6 with a local ID to rent skates and $12 without. You can also check out the beautiful snow sculptures too!

  • Sledding at R Park - Bring a sled to wonderful Rendezvous Park and head to one of the three awesome sledding hills.
  • Visit the Animal Adoption Center - Stop by and say hello to all of the pups that need a new home. You can walk them around town or play games with them while they sport their fancy ‘Adopt Me’ vests. Talk about feel-good fun.
