Why You Should Take a Flight to Jackson Hole

If you want a mountain adventure look no further than the hip hillside resorts of Jackson Hole in Wyoming, which nestles in the vale of the Teton Mountains south of Yellowstone and north of the Great Plains.

Jackson Hole is a world-famous ski destination and in the summer the spectacular mountains attract nature lovers, fishermen, hikers and rock climbers.

The town of Jackson has an Old West feel with saloons and wooden boardwalks, and a thriving cultural scene. Events like the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival and the Grand Teton Music Festival attract visitors from around the country.

When to Book Flights to Jackson Hole

Each season offers something different, but winter and summer are the big draw cards.

The snows arrive in late fall and the ski season runs from November to April. Jackson Hole is home to three ski resorts, which are among the best in the country. Demand and prices are at their highest from December through March.

The opening of the highway from Yellowstone in mid-May marks the start of the summer season and visitors descend on Jackson Hole to explore Grand Teton National Park.

The best time to find cheap flights to Jackson Hole is in spring and fall when the weather can be unpredictable, but it is less busy. In spring the snows recede, and plants and animals gradually reclaim the slopes. Fall’s foliage displays are spectacular and there is a relaxed vibe as the locals wind down after summer.

Tips and Tricks for Traveling in Jackson Hole

If you visit during spring or fall, check if attractions are open – some close during the off-season.

Be prepared for a downpour in the summer or unexpected snowfalls in spring and fall. Wear sunscreen all year round as the sun is harsh at higher altitudes.

During the summer there are lots of free events in Jackson Hole, including music concerts and art fairs in Teton Village and Jackson.

Jackson When to Go

Snow lovers head to Jackson when the powder is deep and the slopes are open for business. Ski season typically runs from Thanksgiving into April; however, during high-precipitation years, the resort can remain open even longer. Hotel and lift-ticket prices are the most expensive during the height of ski season, which lasts from December through March. November and April are slightly lower in cost.

While chilly, spring is perfect for nature lovers, as the animals re-emerge after a long winter, and many have newborn babies in tow.

For those wishing to enjoy Mother Nature during her warmer months, most of the national parks begin welcoming guests for the summer season in May. However, the snow can linger on the mountains through the end of June—sometimes even later—so if you want guaranteed sun and nice weather, your best bet is to plan a trip for late July or August.

Fall months are quiet, as many of the outdoor companies shut down for the shoulder season. Visiting during this time can be a gamble: The snow might arrive early, but more than likely the landscape will be a tapestry of rich colors illuminated by the pleasant afternoons.
