Add Ski Fun to the Itinerary

Book a National Park Wildlife Tour
No matter when you make your way to Jackson Hole, you’ll find it’s a place with options for prime wildlife-watching experiences. At the beginning of 2024, you’ll want to be sure to book a wildlife tour through one of the nearby national parks. Both Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park have opportunities to participate in guided outings with a focus on finding amazing wildlife in their natural habitat. They are often hosted in a heated snow coach but can also be booked as snowmobiling experiences if you’re looking to pick up the pace. Along the way, you’ll likely see everything from elk and bald eagles to moose and more.
Sled Your Way to Adventure
With plenty of snowy terrain at your fingertips, the beginning of 2024 in Jackson Hole should include something unique and thrilling. A great option that checks every box on the list is booking an Iditarod dog sledding tour while you’re in town. Alongside a musher guide and a team of Alaskan sled dogs, you’ll make your way through the wilderness using a mode of transportation that’s effective and historic. You’ll spot wildlife along the way and learn more about the sled dogs that make the entire experience possible. These tours are often booked as half or full-day outings depending on preference with stops at hot springs included in the agenda too.
Visit an Inspiring Gallery
When you’re looking to warm up at the beginning of 2024 after all of the outdoor adventures and you could use some artistic inspiration to match, making your way to the National Museum of Wildlife Art is always the right choice. Overlooking the scenic National Elk Refuge, this museum hosts a variety of masterful works of art primarily depicting local wildlife and landscapes. As you browse, you’ll get a creative look at the place you’ve come to enjoy with a unique artistic take on every piece.
