Getting Here is a Breeze

No matter what your point of origin might be, heading to Jackson Hole is made simple when you fly into Jackson Hole Airport. Located just 20 miles from Jackson Hole Resort, this airport is served by airlines out of 12 major U.S. cities. Airlines that fly into Jackson Hole Airport include Delta, United, American, Alaska, Allegiant, and Sun Country. The airport is also open to private jet services. While you’ll likely be ready to hit the ground running once you land, it’s fun to note that Jackson Hole Airport is the only commercial airport of its kind in the country that enjoys a location right in a national park. As soon as you’re wheels down on the runway, you’ll find yourself in Grand Teton National Park with just a 36-minute drive ahead of you to reach Jackson Hole by car.

Getting Around Once You’re Here

Having a rental car in Jackson Hole in the summertime is highly recommended. This is particularly true if you’re planning to venture out into the national parks or staying in Teton Village which is 12 miles northwest of Jackson Hole. That said, Jackson Hole is also equipped with a public bus system and many visitors opt to rent a bike while they’re in town for getting around when they’re staying close to one destination.

Summer Activities to Enjoy

Once you have that bike rented, you’re going to want to get out and explore Jackson Hole’s terrain. There are fantastic mountain biking trails right at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort as well as more leisurely paved trails running through town. Head over to JH Sports for mountain bike rentals or Teton Village Sports for an e-bike if you prefer. For summer travelers who are looking for a new view of it all, this is the season for sensational rock climbing in Jackson Hole. Alongside an experienced guide, you can tackle the Jackson Hole via Ferrata atop the Bridger Gondola and the reward lies in some breathtaking views that await. Climbing options are just as inviting over at Grand Teton National Park which is also a great option when you’re looking for fun hikes, or afternoons enjoyed cooling off at Jenny Lake. Phelps Lake is another great choice for a swim while guided wildlife-watching tours through the park will put you within reach of amazing creatures of all kinds. If you’re a visitor with a passion for time on the greens, Jackson Hole hosts five area golf courses as well as a disc golf course to utilize over at Teton Village. When you’re traveling this way with the entire family in tow, activities like horseback riding or riding the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram and dining on gourmet waffles at Corbet’s Cabin afterward could just be the highlight of your seasonal adventure.

Summer Temperatures to Consider

Jackson Hole is a four seasons destination and in the summer, visitors can count on warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine to enjoy. Average temperatures in June linger around the mid-70s while July and August see those numbers jump into the 80s. If you’re planning to be out exploring extensively, sunscreen, sunglasses, bug repellant, and hats are highly recommended. When you have hikes on the to-do list, pack plenty of water and remember that leaving earlier in the day will help make every step more enjoyable.
