Jackson Hole Sleigh Rides

W

inter is a magical season in Jackson Hole.  We can’t think of a better way to enjoy it than to find a quiet corner of the valley and slow down for the experience.  Jackson Hole Vintage Adventures provides luxury sleigh rides along the Snake River in Jackson Hole.  Travel through a winter wonderland before arriving at our tipi camp, nestled among the cottonwood trees at the river’s edge.  The tipi camp is constructed entirely of wooden poles and canvas, as were the camps of native people and mountain men of a bygone era.  Experience the gentle calm and tranquility of winter in this area that is home to a variety of wildlife, such as moose, elk, deer, river otter, eagles, trumpeter swans and more.  Our destination is the delightfully warm riverside tipi camp, where you’ll be served treats and hot cocoa, or an expertly prepared meal.  Our beautifully appointed vintage wooden sleigh is drawn by a team of draft horses, and provides a serene and nostalgic way to enjoy the myriad sights and sounds of this spectacular environment.  Join us for a bit of vintage Wyoming fun this winter.

 

Vintage Wooden Sleighs

Our vintage sleighs are made of locally sourced wood and are hand-built using the techniques of old world craftsmanship.  The magnificent team of Belgian draft horses that pull the sleighs are amish-bred gentle giants.  Long ago, in Jackson Hole, life depended on a well kept team of horses for travel, subsistence, and survival.  Make a genuine connection with a simpler time as the quiet power of the team pulls your sleigh out onto the trail.  Join us for an unforgettable Jackson Hole sleigh ride.

Winter in Jackson Hole

Winter in Jackson Hole can be quite variable. The snow can start flying in October and continue to May or even June. However, we typically experience the onset of winter around the end of November, when the snow starts accumulating on the ground. So it continues until the end of March, when it melts off and the ground becomes visible again. Our days are shorter during the winter and the temperature drop is noticeable as the sun goes down. We do recommend packing wool or synthetic layers for your vacation so you'll stay warm and be able to enjoy all the outdoor activities that Jackson Hole has to offer during the winter.
Average high and low temperatures for Jackson Hole are:
November: 40F/17F
December: 28F/7F
January: 28F/5F
February: 33F/9F
March: 42F/18F
April: 52F/25F

Morning float with tons of wildlife!

“We had a very scenic float down the river in the early morning. Saw tons of wildlife, birds, even a mother moose and her calf! The fast waters were no problem either. Hot tea and blankets were provided as well, so our cold morning was still comfortable.”

Beautiful trip!!

“My family and I (10 of us – all adults) did the float and dinner tour and had an outstanding and memorable trip! We saw lots of wildlife, the crew was great, and the dinner at their ‘camp’ was the highlight of our vacation to the Jackson Hole area. If you are looking for a great trip I highly recommend!!”

Was that a dream?

“Friends and I shared a magical experience on a horse-drawn sleigh to tipi camp along the Snake River in mid-December. The warm food, the rustic ambience, and the soft falling snow made for a quintessential winter afternoon. At the conclusion of our experience, the little boy with us turned to his mom and said, “Mommy, was that a dream?” Need I say more. A must-do.”
