It has a self-sufficient ecosystem and is home to wild animals like bison, elk, wolves and bears. It sits on top of an ancient volcano that created the Rocky Mountains after a mega eruption more than two million years ago. The Yellowstone Grand Canyon is 900 feet deep and contains beautiful waterfalls along with red and yellow rock faces due to the geothermal and chemical reactions with the iron in the rock. There are numerous hiking and mountain bike trails of various lengths and difficulties. There are also bike rental facilities.
The Grand Teton National Park is also near to the station. The park has enormous mountains, lakes with crystal waters and abundant forest life. It is very popular with photographers and mountaineers. There are good hiking routes which take a few days and there are lodges where you can stay along the way. If you don’t have enough time to do these there are some shorter routes, where you can see the Cascade Canyons, at the entrance to the park.
There are cross country ski trails at the base of the station. The Jenny Lake route, under Tetons, is a nice option with extremely beautiful scenery. JH Nordic, Tetons Pines and Shooting Star are other good routes. Jackson Hole provides numerous ways for you to disconnect, with shops, themed bars, spas and wellness centres and a lively nightlife.
