With over 400” inches of annual snowfall, Jackson Hole has the longest paddling season in the Rocky Mountains. The nearby Snake and Hoback rivers and their tributaries are a playground of rapids for all levels. Half day tours, lessons from certified guides, or week long trips under the majestic Grand Tetons are all viable options for water lovers. Whether you are a beginning white water kayaker, advanced, or prefer a more peaceful venture across a mountain lake in a sea kayak, Jackson Hole offers it all.
A handful of local companies are experts in guiding and training. They also provide rentals for the more experienced kayaker. Learn and practice river safety, rolling, controlled exits and surfing.
If you want to experience the grandeur of the Snake River in a unique way, try a wooden boat tour. Your local guide in his own custom built wooden drift boat will expertly navigate you down the river. Enjoy spectacular views of the Tetons as well as great wildlife viewing. Both morning and evening trips are available.
