Thanksgiving is just around the corner, making now the ideal time to plan your Thanksgiving away in scenic Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Whether you’re traveling with family or friends, this is a picture-perfect place to begin new holiday traditions in style!
Make It a Flavorful Holiday Away
For many travelers to Jackson Hole over Thanksgiving, it’s hard to imagine the holiday away from home without a fantastic Thanksgiving feast on the calendar. Fortunately, Jackson Hole is a destination packed with flavorful options to enjoy, and over Thanksgiving, restaurants tend to elevate their menus with holiday flare. Consider heading over to the Silver Dollar Bar & Grill this year to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner from 11:00 am until 3:30pm. Guests can make the most of this savory moment for $35 a person, and dinner typically includes turkey, rosemary, and sage stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, and sweet potato casserole too. This is a popular dinner option this time of year, so you’ll want to be sure to make your reservations at least 48 hours in advance. Another great Thanksgiving dinner option in town is found at Spring Creek Ranch where they host a menu made up of grilled lobster tail and acorn squash soup just to name a few of the many mouthwatering options. Other stops in Jackson Hole that are generally open for delicious business over Thanksgiving include the Mangy Moose, Gun Barrel Steak and Game House as well as The Kitchen, Orsetto Italian Bar and Eatery, and Kampai for fantastic Japanese cuisine.
Run Your Way to Thanksgiving Fun
If you’re the type of traveler who absolutely loves to find an athletic event no matter where you roam, then you’re sure to be inspired by the annual Turkey Trot hosted in Jackson Hole each Thanksgiving Day. The race is on once again in 2023 and will kick off at 9:00 am at Wilson Boat Ramp access off Highway 22. The Turkey Trot is a 5K with options for participants to run or walk according to preference. It’s a fantastic way to exercise in great company and a fun way to work off that Thanksgiving meal as well!
Get Out and Explore Nature at Its Best
Year-round, Jackson Hole is a destination designed to inspire nature lovers. If you find yourself here over Thanksgiving, you’ll be just in time to admire wildlife and landscapes when colors are changing and temperatures are beginning to fall. A great place to start your exploration is at the National Elk Refuge which was created in 1912 and continues to provide a safe haven for an astounding population of elk alongside other wildlife. There are plenty of opportunities here to come and enjoy the view on your own, but they also offer guided experiences when you’re looking to learn more. Another fantastic option for making the most of the great outdoors this Thanksgiving during your Jackson Hole getaway is to set aside some time to take a hike or guided wildlife outing through nearby Grand Teton National Park. Whether you’re one for nature photography or simply enamored with breathtaking views, these destinations both have everything you’re looking to enjoy and more.
Take Holiday Photos in Town Square
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on gratitude while spending quality time with family and friends. When you find yourself in Jackson Hole this time of year, you can capture those moments on camera by planning to take photos at iconic Town Square. Here, you’ll find four massive arches made of elk antlers that are shed seasonally at the nearby refuge. These arches are unique and stunning, making for a great photo opportunity that might just end up being worthy of your annual holiday card! Once you’ve grabbed your photos, you can spend some time checking out the many charming shops and restaurants that adorn Town Square as well. It’s a great place to hang out, people-watch, and enjoy some downtime this holiday.
Hit the Slopes
If you stick around until the day after Thanksgiving, you just might be one of the first on the ski slopes when Jackson Hole Mountain Resort kicks off its opening day. Whether you’re new to skiing or a pro on the snow, taking time to explore some of the first tracks at the ski resort when ski season opens is always a thrill! They have trails fit for skiers of all skill levels and plenty of options for booking ski lessons if you need a refresher or it’s your first time giving the sport a try. Of course, the après ski scene here is just as appealing as the slopes when fresh powder falls!

This is an annual event that’s beloved by locals and visitors alike and one you won’t want to leave off your itinerary in 2023.
Hike Through the National Parks
While the October festivities in Jackson Hole are certainly worth enjoying, Halloween is also a great time of year to get in a last hike through the nearby national parks before the snow begins to fall for the season. A visit this way puts you well within reach of both Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. Both destinations offer up incredible wildlife viewing, nature photography options, and trails that are sure to inspire no matter what your skill level may be. There are still tours that can be booked through the parks this time of year as well if you prefer a more guided option to exploring nature.

WHAT TO DO IN JACKSON HOLE IN WINTER
If you are looking for activities to do other than the obvious we’ve compiled a list of our “Top 10 Favorite Things to do During the Winter that are NOT Skiing and Snowboarding”:
NATIONAL PARKS & WILDLIFE TOURS
Take a winter tour through nearby Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, or the National Elk refuge and enjoy the pristine Wyoming winter landscape from the comfort of a heated snow-coach. These tours offer unparalleled vistas, options to see geological wonders like Old Faithful, and encounters with elk, moose, bald eagles, and more.
SNOWSHOEING OR CROSS COUNTRY SKIING
There are plenty of alternatives to downhill skiing and snowboarding that offer gorgeous winter vistas and a great workout. Snowshoe through one of Jackson Hole’s many powder-covered trails or take a guided snowshoeing trip through a Grand Teton National Park.

Cross country skiers can enjoy groomed Nordic tracks or nature trails through Grand Teton National Park. Guided cross country ski trips and snowshoe adventures are available from Eco Tour Adventures and Hole Hiking Experience.
SNOW TUBING & COWBOY COASTER
Ready to laugh and scream like a little kid again? Snow tubing parks offer hours of winter fun for all ages. Get out and enjoy the snow at the tubing parks at Snow King Ski Area or nearby Grand Targhee Ski Resort. Rope tows and conveyor lifts make it quick and easy to get back up to the top of the hill. Remember that snow tube riders must be 42 inches or taller. The brand new Cowboy Coaster at Snow King takes riders up 456 feet and then back down on a thrill-ride of twists and hairpin turns.
SHOPPING & DINING
Jackson Hole offers a range of shopping and dining options. Spend a day in downtown Jackson exploring historic Town Square, with its iconic antler arches and the nearby stores and restaurants. Don’t miss the famous Million Dollar Cowboy bar, where the seats are saddles, or pop into the Silver Dollar Bar at the historic Wort Hotel where there is live music most evenings. Walk the boardwalks where you’ll find local boutiques, western apparel and gifts, art galleries, outlets, and major retailers. If you are looking to gear up for outdoor fun, then stop by Teton Village’s ski and snowboard stores. Teton Village also offers plenty of additional dining options. Grab an early afternoon drink in Teton Village or downtown Jackson to meet up with skiing friends and take part in the après-ski scene.
A snowmobile tour in Jackson Hole can take you to beautiful natural settings that are otherwise inaccessible in the winter months. Hang on to your hat as an expert guide whisks you across the winter landscape. Tour Yellowstone National Park, the Gros Ventre Range, Togwotee Pass, or Greys River and visit landmarks like Old Faithful or the Granite Hot Springs, where you can enjoy a relaxing
TRAM & GONDOLA RIDES
Jackson Hole is known for its Aerial Tram, which takes passengers from the Mountain Resort to the summit of Rendezvous Mountain at 10,450 feet. The Tram offers panoramic views of the Teton Mountains, the town of Jackson, the Snake River Valley, and Grand Teton National Park. Warm-up at the top, with world-famous waffles at Corbet’s Cabin.

ARTS AND CULTURE
Nestled into a cliff overlooking the National Elk Refuge, The National Museum of Wildlife Art is a must-see for new and returning visitors to Jackson Hole. This collection details the history of wildlife in art with a focus on European and American painting and sculpture. Art lovers will also enjoy touring Jackson Hole’s more than 25 galleries featuring painting and photography by local and world-renowned artists. Check the schedule of ongoing events at the Jackson Hole Center for The Arts for nighttime fun.
IDITAROD DOG SLEDDING TOURS
It doesn’t get more authentic than this! A musher guide and a team of Alaskan sled dogs will pull you through the wilderness where you’ll learn about local wildlife and spot deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, and bald eagles. Choose from a half or full-day dog sledding adventure. The full-day tours even stop at Granite Hot Springs for a relaxing soak in the natural spa-like waters
SPAS & WELLNESS
Nurture yourself inside and out with a visit to one of Jackson Hole’s spas, which offer a range of services and experiences from traditional facials and bodywork, to more comprehensive wellness programs such as guided yoga instruction. Many of Jackson Hole’s spas harness the ingredients and natural beauty of the surrounding area to give you a truly unique treatment. Visitors interested in wellness can also enjoy daily classes at one of Jackson Hole’s yoga or Pilates studios.
Immersing oneself in a steamy hot spring on a cold winter day surrounded by snow and mountains is, quite possibly, heaven on Earth. It’s downright blissful. It’s the kind of experience we hope everyone gets to have at least once, and if you decide to take a trip to Jackson this season, the opportunity is ripe for you. Located 30 miles southeast of Jackson, Granite is among the most popular hot springs to visit. The spring itself is completely natural, but there is a developed concrete pool to accommodate everyone more easily. It’s widely known and easy to find; about an hour from Jackson. What gives away the location of Astoria is the distinct smell of sulfur as you approach. This one is a bit more exciting when it comes to finding it because it isn’t developed and requires following the river upstream for a while. You’ll be treated to stunning views of the Snake River Canyon. Be careful, though! This hot spring is known for being extremely, well, hot!
Already one of the more accessible destination resort in the Rockies, Jackson Hole will be more accessible by air than ever this winter, with new service coming in from Boston, Seattle, San Diego, and San Jose, California. The Jackson Hole Airport is located at the base of the spectacular Teton mountain range. Located entirely within Grand Teton National Park, flying into the Jackson Hole Airport is an awe-inspiring start to your trip to Jackson Hole.
While snowfalls are common through May, the warmer days start to make themselves visible, making the spring a great time to be outdoors watching the wildlife wake up from the hibernating months. Enjoy the outdoors and its majestic mountains and forested trails. There are also great opportunities and events that can not be missed if you want to fully experience the famous wild west.
All events are subject to change to comply with state and county public health orders.

Journey down the class II-III Snake River with stunning canyon scenery, calm stretches, and fun rapids. Experience the two biggest waves on the river, Big Kahuna and Lunch Counter. Your guide will teach you how to sit, paddle, and stroke as you laugh your way down the Snake! The 8-mile whitewater stretch through the Snake River Canyon takes you through a mix of calm sections where you’ll be able to take in the scenery and wildlife, and exciting rapids where you’re more than likely to get a little wet. Custom made, state of the art Aire rafts can hold up to 16 people, with 8-10 paddle spots in each boat. Private rafts are also available. Contact Abode Concierge Team for more information.
A LAZY MORNING
If the group wakes up running slow, just grab an early breakfast or a late brunch. Jackson Hole is full of cozy spots that serve traditional American breakfast, sandwiches, baked goods or desserts such as pie. The Bunnery Bakery & Restaurant is one of Jackson’s favorite casual restaurants, serving breakfast and lunch daily throughout the year and dinner during the summer months. If you are looking for more home cooked classics with a log cabin environment Cafe Genevieve Restaurant is perfect for you. High attention to detail and creative preparation defines Rations, the in-store restaurant at Basecamp, is a not-so-hidden gem in this establishment.
GRAND TETON TOUR
From glamorous peaks to roaming wildlife, enjoy an afternoon in Grand Teton National Park with visits to Oxbow Bend, Mormon Row, Snake River, and Jenny Lake. Tour offers balanced narrations covering flora, fauna, geology, and both natural and local history. Only at Abode Experience tops your evening off with a delicious safari-style hot dinner served in the field at a scenic location.
Stop by the Hootenanny on Monday night at Dornan’s in Moose! The Jackson Hole Hootenanny (“The Hoot”) invites musicians to gather and play traditional acoustic music for a receptive crowd in one of the most awe-inspiring settings in the world.
