Jackson Hole may be famous for its ski terrain, but the region is also well known to snowmobilers for its extensive trails and varied terrain too. There are 2.5 million acres of backcountry riding with 600 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. Then there’s the proximity of the famous Yellowstone National Park and the Old Faithful geyser.
Old Faithful Snowmobile Tours (+1 (307) 733 9767) will take you backcountry to visit the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Old Faithful, Granite Hot Springs, Togwotee Mountain Pass or the Wyoming Continental Divide. Both day and overnight adventures are available. The noise problem with snowmobiles is overcome by the company using a new generation clean, quiet snowmobiles.
There are more than 100 shops in the area, with most of them concentrated in Downtown Jackson where the Town Square is an old fashioned resort centre you can easily walk around from shop-to-shop rather than needing to drive, as is often the case at US ski resorts. It’s choc full of quirky stores selling everything from cowboy boots to fine art. This is the place to find intricate locally made jewellery or a set of elk antler chandeliers if you can afford the excess baggage.
Bibliophiles will love Jackson Hole Book Traders (970 West Broadway; +1 (307) 734 6001) that sells used, new and unusual titles with 25,000 titles in stock. “Pour yourself a cup of coffee, say hello to Annie, and settle in to find a great book.” Or why not visit the Jackson Hole Hat Company (45 Deloney Ave; +1 (307) 733 7687) which has been custom-making felt hats for over 25 years and carries a stock of Stetson, Bailey, Sunbody, and other ready-made hats, belts, and Western apparel. There are many more of similar ilk.
Away from the Town Square, Jackson has most types of ‘regular town store’ so all needs are catered for.
There’s a handful of shops up at the mountain too, including a general store and several ski shops.
