Cross-country Skiing & Snowshoeing


Skiing and snowshoeing are popular activites in the park during the long winter months. Download the Cross-Country Skiing and Snowshoeing brochure for a list of popular routes and safety information.

Watch our video podcast to learn more about winter safety in the park.

The park does not mark ski and snowshoe trails. You must be responsible for route-finding in the backcountry. Remember that winter storms can intensify quickly obscuring your tracks and reducing visibility. Please use caution and be aware of changing conditions.

Late December through mid-March, rangers offer guided snowshoe hikes. Call (307) 739-3399 for more details and to make reservations.

Please visit our Winter Trip Planner page for more details. For current backcountry conditions visit the Jenny Lake Climbing Rangers blogspot, and read the Jackson Hole Avalanche forecast.
