Listicles

Wintertime in Wyoming has an adventurous allure. After the first snowfall of the season the entire landscape is transformed into a winter wonderland filled with promise and adventure, making it the ideal place to head outdoors and explore. Head to the park’s Togwotee Mountain Lodge to enjoy some of the best outdoor adventures winter in Wyoming has to offer.

 

Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling is a fun activity and popular mode of transportation in many parts of the country during the snowy winter months. Togwotee Mountain Lodge perfected the sport and earned itself a reputation as one of the world’s premier destinations for snowmobiling. The opportunity to explore nature and blaze a trail through the pristine snow is just part of the appeal. State-of-the-art equipment and expertly trained guides well-versed in the local terrain help make this a must-do for winter-weather adventure-seekers.

There are multiple levels of snowmobiling experiences to choose from, ranging from beginner to advanced. For experienced riders looking for an adrenaline rush, there is also the extreme experience. The lodge offers snowmobile rentals for both trail riding and off-trail adventures with specialized snowmobiles for each type of experience. The deep-powder, off-trail performance sleds are ideal for handling the off-trail train and the powdery snow that often gets chest deep.

 

The lodge can also provide snowsuits, boots and helmets, so you don’t have to worry about lugging bulky gear and equipment with you while traveling. All you have to bring is a healthy sense of adventure.

 

Dog Sledding

While you’ve no doubt seen dog sledding in a movie, getting the chance to do it in real life is not that common. Unless you are in Bridger-Teton National Forest in the wintertime. The lodge pairs with Jackson Hole’s Continental Divide Dog Sled Adventures to give you the experience of a lifetime. The company’s expertly trained dogs and handlers will take you on a dog-led tour through Grand Teton National Park backcountry to explore majestic scenery, awe-inspiring views and mile after mile of snow-covered natural beauty. You can sit back and enjoy the ride or, if you prefer a more interactive experience, your guides will give you some quick instruction on how to handle the dogs and the sled on your own. The experience runs between $310–340 per person for a half-day excursion, depending on how close to Christmas you book, and includes lunch and transportation to and from your hotel. For a lower price you can forego the lunch and provided transportation.
