Spotlight On: Dog Sledding in Jackson Hole
Imagine rushing through the pristine wilderness with only the sound of panting dogs and the woosh of the sled as you head towards a remote mountain hot spring for an afternoon soak. A once in a lifetime experience, dog sledding offers the thrill of dashing through beautiful backcountry on the heels of some stunning canines! Top it off with a leisurely soak in mother nature’s hot tub and we’d call it a good day.
If this sounds like the perfect way to spend a day away from the slopes, give Jackson Hole Iditarod a call and book their Granite Hot Springs Full Day Dog Sledding Trip.
Dogsledding to Granite Hot Springs
Granite Hot Springs is located approximately 30 miles southeast of the town of Jackson and is maintained by the United States Forest Service. The Civilian Conservation Corps enhanced an existing primitive pool to the current pool in 1935, adding a campground, changing room, and deck. This developed, concrete hot spring pool is situated alongside Granite Creek amongst huge spruce, fir and pine trees for an unbelievable view. There is also a primitive pool located at Granite Falls, about 1/2 mile downstream. In the winter, visitors must access it by skis, snowshoes, fat bike, snowmobile or dog sled, making it ultra-exclusive! It’s worth the trek – the pool temperature in the winter months can reach up to 112 °F degrees. “Ahhhh…”
Not only is the sled trip an extremely unique experience…you won’t be able to get enough of the exceptional dogs that power you on your adventure. Availability is limited so we recommend that you book these trips very early to ensure you get the day and time that fits your schedule while in Jackson.
