6 Ways To Spend Your Weekend Outside

Posted on Jan. 18, 2019

Hey there Happy Active Families!

Who’s feeling like a weekend warrior ready to take on all of the fresh powder we were just graced with!? I know we are! The best part about spending winter in Jackson has to be the endless amounts of positive energy being emitted from every angle when it snows. There truly is no better place in the world to be cold! Though skiing is a what most of us think of when we think of powder days, there truly are tons of other opportunities for family winter fun in Jackson Hole. So we decided to compile a short list of affordable outdoor activities you and your littles might be interested in this weekend.

6 Ways To Get Outside This Weekend

Cache Creek

Walk around the beautiful Cache Creek area and look for wildlife, babbling creeks, and snowballs to be thrown.

Snow King Magic Carpet

The whole family can enjoy the magic carpet for only $10! It’s a great place to learn to ski or snowboard if you’ve never done it. It’s also fun for little learners too! You can walk to the bottom as well and ride up if you only want to supervise and not ski! It’s quick and easy.

Ice Skating

Ice skate on Jackson’s iconic Town Square while enjoying romantic music and beautiful lights! Rentals are $5 with a local ID and $10 without. Or bring your own and skate for free! M-F 4pm-9pm and Sat-Sun 12pm-9pm

If you’re in Teton Village, from 3pm-9pm you can skate on the commons too! $6 with a local ID to rent skates and $12 without. You can also check out the beautiful snow sculptures too!

Sledding at R Park

Bring a sled to wonderful Rendezvous Park and head to one of the three awesome sledding hills.

Visit the Animal Adoption Center

Stop by and say hello to all of the pups that need a new home. You can walk them around town or play games with them while they sport their fancy ‘Adopt Me’ vests. Talk about feel good fun.

Driggs Snowscape and Snow Ball

Venture over to Driggs to check out the magical snow sculptures artists created all week. On Saturday from 10am-4pm vote for your favorite and watch awards at 6pm. There will be a celebration afterwards at the Driggs City Center from 7pm-11pm. Adults $15 and kids $8.

Thanks so much for your endless support! We hope you have an amazing weekend filled with snow, laughter, and fun family time!
