Jackson Hole Snowmobiling

Winter is a remarkable time of the year to experience Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, and the surrounding national forests.

A diverse offering of snowmobile tours will cater to your desire for fun, adventure, and unforgetable experiences. 

Many corners of Jackson Hole close to cars when the snow piles up, but that just means you’ll have more fun getting there by snowmobile or even horse-drawn sleigh. Tour companies offer half-and-multi-day tours for riders of all experience levels through some of Jackson Hole’s most remote backcountry, or out amongst the world-famous Jackson Hole elk herd.

Best Snowmobile Rides

  • Granite Hot Springs -- Jackson Hole’s most popular snowmobile excursion, this half-day ride traverses a snow-covered road beside Granite Creek, bound for the historic Granite Hot Springs. The 112-degree springs were built in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, and have been offering visitors a relaxing winter getaway ever since.
  • Yellowstone National Park -- Largely closed to cars in winter, Yellowstone is a snowmobiling paradise featuring encounters with thundering waterfalls, epic geysers, and of course, wildlife. Looking for something even more immersive? Book an overnight tour to the Old Faithful Snow Lodge, and have the famous geyser basin nearly to yourself after the day-trippers have turned tail for home.
  • Gros Ventre Range -- In winter, Jackson Hole’s eastern boundary is its wildest and most remote. The Gros Ventre mountain range is closed to off-road traffic, but a groomed track cuts through the heart of this enormous, wildlife-rich wilderness. Spot elk, deer, moose, coyote, eagles, and even the occasional wolf from the saddle of your snowmobile on this fullday excursion.

Snow Motion: Snowmobile Adventure

Take a trip with adventurer Richard Bangs. The Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board worked in partnership with Orbitz Quest to film a series of inspiring videos. "Snow Motion" features a visit to Granite Hot Springs. Did you know you could also dog sled? If you don't have your own snowmobile or won't be transporting it here, snowmobile rentals are available.
