Cross Country Skiing
Jackson Hole offers an abundance of cross country skiing opportunities.
Jackson Hole offers great cross country skiing opportunities (including Nordic and skate skiing), from groomed trails following the scenic Snake River and Cache Creek to options to find your own path in Grand Teton National Park and everything in between.
The options for aerobic exercises during Jackson's long winters are minimal compared to our summers. WIth downhill skiing and snowboarding being extremely popular, why not test out some other options--yes there are more!
When it snows, why not make for the cross-country ski trails?
Not into skis? Try snowshoeing for a wonderful winter trails excursion!

Best Places to Cross Country Ski for Fun and Fitness
- Grand Teton National Park -- Grand Teton National Park grooms 14 miles of the snow-covered Teton Park Road twice a week, creating a relatively flat, carpet-smooth track for cross-country skiers to cruise beneath the stunning ramparts of the Teton Range. Most popular is the 9-mile round trip to the frozen shores of Jenny Lake. Even more popular are the hot toddys and bloody Mary’s served up at the bar at Dornan’s in Moose afterwards.
- Emily’s Pond Levee Trail -- The Emily’s Pond Levee Trail traverses the shore of the Snake River northeast of the Highway 22 bridge and features stunning views of the Teton Range in the background of the rushing river. The county Parks and Rec department grooms the 2.1-milelong trail twice weekly for a fun, mostly level route. The trail’s most prominent feature, or obstacle depending upon your feelings, are the dozens of dogs whose owners bring them to the trail to frolic every day.
- Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone -- Have Yellowstone’s most majestic vistas to yourself with a cross-country ski tour along the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Arriving by scenic snow coach, this guided ski winds six miles past the thunderous, iced-over Upper and Lower Falls and features vertiginous views into the Canyon. Long before the ski lifts, Jackson Hole residents used cross-country skis to get the mail, go to the store, or visit their friends across the snowy valley. The cross-country ski tradition lives on with dozens of miles of groomed trail suitable for beginners and Olympians alike.
Be sure to check with local shops for the latest information about gear available for rent or purchase as well as suggested destinations for adventure.
