Escape into Winter
The wonder of winter in Jackson Hole is the stuff legends are made of. The Rusty Parrot Lodge has put together a suggested package that will allow you a sampling of the adventure.
The first day starts with a half-day tour, accompanied by an expedition biologist, to view wildlife in their winter habitat in Grand Teton National Park and the surrounding National Forests. Enjoy lunch at The National Museum of Wildlife Art, with views overlooking thousands of head of elk in the National Elk Refuge. After viewing one of the world’s finest wildlife art collections at the museum, the day will conclude with a sleigh ride into the herd of elk on the National Elk Refuge. You will be within feet of one of the Rocky Mountains’ proudest animals.
On the second day you will start with a guided snowmobile tour, potentially with mountain views! This is an opportunity to spot elk, deer, moose, coyote, bighorn sheep and bald eagles.
On the four-night package, in addition to the above, take a full day snowshoe tour. Enjoy the serenity of human powered exploration in Grand Teton or the National Forest. This trek provides great opportunity for tracking the movement of winter wildlife.
On the five-night package, in addition to the above, journey for a full day by snowcoach to the Old Faithful geyser basin in Yellowstone National Park. Enjoy the scenery in comfort, chauffeured by an experienced, knowledgeable guide, making several stops along the way for wildlife viewing and photography. Breakfast, restaurant lunch and refreshments are included. (Available until mid March due to Yellowstone road closings).
Package is available December 15th through March 14th. Please contact our reservations staff at 800-458-2004 for specific rates and availability. We are available to assist you each day of the week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. MT.
