thanksgiving in Jackson Hole

Would like to take family to JH for the week of thanksgiving but am having trouble finding information on what outdoor activities are available that time of year. Any suggestions or ideas? 3 adult sons and we are all very active .

Honestly not much is available. Yellowstone will be closed, Grand Targhee MAY be open, but neither Snow King, nor JH Mountain Resort will be open for skiing. There will be too much snow for back country hiking, but probably not enough for skiing. There are a couple of local trails that will be accessible like Cache Creek, but there pretty small potatoes for "very active" people. All the summer business are shut down. Winter ones haven't opened yet. There is a 5k race on Thanksgiving day. I'm sorry to say this is not a good time to come and enjoy the outdoors.

Two other locations to consider for outdoor activities:

The S. Utah parks? http://www.utah.com/nationalparks/


The Pacific NW? Too many choices for one website. Gets into rainy season, however.

Will help where we can.

Thanks. My son is moving to Cody and we thought it would be fun to celebrate Thanksgiving in Wyoming. We may have to rethink it!

I would head to Cody for Thanksgiving. It might be a little more dry and if the weather is bad, you can spends days exploring the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.
