Lodge at Jackson Fork Ranch
Snowshoeing at Jackson Fork Lodge Wyoming
Wyoming Range

Snowshoeing in the Mountains. The simplest things can be the most exciting!

One of the best ways to explore the beautiful valleys and majestic mountains surrounding the Lodge at Jackson Fork is on foot. But with our deep, powdery snows, the only way you can is on a couple of contraptions invented thousands of years ago by Northern Eskimos to extend their hunting grounds snowshoes.

The first snowshoes were made of bent saplings and rawhide strips but today's models, like the ones available at the Lodge, are a combination of lightweight aluminum and nylon mesh which makes them smaller, lighter and less awkward to walk on.

That means you and your friends and family can easily enjoy hours of trekking through some of the most beautiful country trails in the world. Take your camera to catch memorable shots of the moose, elk, and pronghorn that Winter in the valley below the Lodge. Or scan the sky for bald eagles soaring above their prey. Wherever you look, you'll see something awe-inspiring.

We offer guided backcountry trips for the more adventurous but snowshoeing is a sport for everyone beginner to expert and it's great fun for the whole family! You may also want to try cross country skiing or snow-mobiling. Wyoming Range

Snow Shoe Tips:
•  When going down steep hills, lean back and take monster steps. It's really fun and you can descend a whole mountain in no time.

• When going uphill, keep your foot flat and your back straight and upright. This keeps weight over your traction bar and helps prevent slipping backwards. If you lean forward while climbing the steeps you'll slip.
