Those who take advantage of Wyoming in the wintertime know that there are all sorts of activities to get you out of the house and in to weather where you can see your breath and love it.

Many people love to accept the mountain challenge of getting from top to bottom. Some love the fall line, the shortest, straightest way down while others love to take their time and leisurely doing long, winding “S curves” and just enjoy taking it easy.

At Snowy Range Ski Area The whole mountain is open for skiing on their 58 inch base on 29 trails. It’s a great place to learn to ski for the whole family.

The newly remodeled Snow King Resort in Jackson may be so nice you’ll spend all of your time wandering around town and spoiling and pampering yourself instead of actually skiing or snow boarding.

“pick up after your dog – skis do not slide on dog poop very well.”
