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.

Did You Know?

Tetons from Hurricane Pass, KF

Did you know that Grand Teton National Park was established in both 1929 and 1950? The original 1929 park protected the mountain peaks and the lakes near the base. The boundaries were later expanded in 1950 to include much of the adjacent valley floor.
