A Cross-Country Ski Resort Minutes from Destination Alpine Skiing

You ski? If so, Moose Creek Ranch is your Jackson Hole Winter Wonderland. Experience a cross-country ski resort about half an hour from the legendary terrain of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort or the epic powder and scenic cross-country of Grand Targhee.

Legs need a rest day? Head to West Yellowstone a short morning drive away to take an unforgettable snowmobile tour into Yellowstone National Park. 

Look below for some of the most exciting options to enjoy nearby.

Head into Grand Teton National Park from either the Idaho or Wyoming side on ski touring expeditions, backcountry skiing, or cross-country skiing trails you’ll never forget. If you haven’t already, you’ll fall in love with majestic mountain views right out your cabin’s backdoor!

Yellowstone is beautiful in the summer, but truly a one-of-a-kind experience in winter. As the steam rises from thermal features, it coats trees in crystalline carapaces that make the words “winter wonderland” seem insignificant.

Wildlife flocks to the naturally heated areas to enjoy snow-free browsing and a place to rest. And with limited snowmobiles and snow coach tours allowed in daily, you’ll feel more remote than you ever could in the summer.

Make Moose Creek Ranch your basecamp for a winter excursion into Yellowstone from West Yellowstone or the south entrance from Jackson Hole. 

Imagine skiing some of the most celebrated terrains in the country on the 10,932-foot Rendezvous Mountain at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Often earning No.1 ski resort status, you’ll love the views, the mountain, and especially the snow in an area that often gets more than 500 inches a year and rarely gets less than 400 inches.


Steep. And. Deep. Grand Targhee has earned a killer reputation for powder hounds insistent on fresh lines, face shots, and floaty turns.

But this family-friendly resort on the west side of the Tetons also has amazing groomers for the whole family and miles of cross-country ski trails.

Interested in getting the best views of the Tetons? Targhee has dramatic views of the mountains from the top of the 9,862-foot Fred’s Mountain.
