Tomorrow: Try something new on the snow for Winter Trails Day

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Tomorrow is officially Winter Trails Day and a chance for community members to try something new on the snow for free. “Winter Trails Day is one of those rare opportunities to get the whole family outside having fun in the middle of the winter,” said Jill Harkness from Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation. Parks and Recreation has teamed up with many community organizations to offer a day of fun, centered around our amazing trail and pathway system. Celebrate Jackson Hole Winter Trails Day by testing out cross country skis or a fat bike, touring on snowshoes, working with a dog trainer, or just sipping hot chocolate at your favorite local trailhead tomorrow, February 6. “Our favorite part of the day is watching people try something new, whether it’s an adult hopping on a fat bike or a 4-year-old trying cross country skiing.
