Get Your Lift Tickets Early, Online

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is doing things a little different this year. They’ve established a max daily capacity for guests and will limit the number of tickets available for purchase each day – enabling sufficient physical distancing across the base area, buildings and facilities to keep guests safe. To ensure you’re able to ski on the days you want, you need to purchase your lift tickets early, via their online portal. Once the tickets are sold out for that specific day, no more tickets will be available.

Make Your Dinner Reservations Pre-Arrival

We have so many amazing restaurants across town and in the village, that you’ll want to be sure and make your reservations ahead so you don’t miss the chance to support & enjoy these spots.

For a comprehensive list of restaurants around Jackson, check out the Jackson Hole Chamber website.

Enjoying A Sleigh Ride Through The National Elk Refuge

Schedule Non-Skiing Winter Activities In Advance

There is no end to the winter activities available in and around the valley, so plan a few days off the slopes to take advantage of them! From dog-sledding to snowmobiling, National Elk Refuge sleigh rides to winter wildlife safaris, there is something for the whole family to enjoy.

Winter Travel Items

Get Your Gear Ready

Break out your winter gear and make sure it’s tuned up, fits well, and doesn’t need an upgrade (we’re talking to you, 10 year old pants!) You don’t want to wait until the last minute to find out your fave socks have holes in them. Need to rent your gear? There are lots of great options around town and in the village, and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has a comprehensive list. You can reserve online to avoid lines & pay ahead of time. There are also companies that offer free delivery right to your room, like Ski Butlers and Black Tie Skis.
