Winter Recreation

Notorious for being a cold spot, east Idaho has some of the best winter access in the lower forty eight. Whether you’re looking to backcountry ski or snowmobile, fish or snowshoe, the Yellowstone Teton Territory provides an abundance of winter fun.

Plan your trip around one activity or many. Tour on a snowmobile in Yellowstone one day, ski Grand Targhee the next day and on the third, find yourself enjoying the Henry’s Fork. The prime locations of the Yellowstone to Teton Territory are hard to beat with one activity always leading to another. Cross country skiing  can be followed by a trip to Heise or Green Canyon Hot Springs but check their sites. But don’t fret with all the attractions, there is still solitude to be found.

Just because you need your hat and gloves, doesn’t mean that they are not plenty of regional events to enjoy during the winter. Island Park hosts the Great West WinterFest. The International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race passes through Driggs. The American Dog Derby, the oldest American dog sled race,  Yellowstone Rendezvous Marathon Ski Race, World Snowmobile EXPO, Great Snow Fest are all wonderful events to give you an excuse for your next trip to east Idaho.
