The Jackson Hole, Wyoming Airport will undergo a temporary closure April 11th through June 27th, 2022. Reopening for flights on June 28th, 2022. But, this shouldn’t deter you from enjoying Jackson Hole. Not only are we offering 20% off during this time, but it will mean a spring not to be missed in Jackson Hole. There will be less crowds for more wildlife, sightseeing, shopping and dining. You will be able to experience Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park, and Yellowstone National Park without the usual summer crowds. And, here are a few more reasons to visit:

Revived Energy

As the snow melts, the grass greens and wildflowers begin to bloom, there is a revived sense of energy and serenity. The entire area seems to burst to life, and this year the summer crowds will be at bay. The weather can be quite enjoyable this time of year as well with average temperatures in the mid-60s. Visiting this time of year is unique and exciting in Jackson Hole.

Two of the Best National Parks

The gateway to two of the greatest national parks, Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Both national parks are extremely popular amongst summer vacationers and can become crowded in July and August. With less crowds expected this spring, these will be the perfect months to visit to take in the scenery. We promise the fields of wildflowers and wildlife will not disappoint. We should also mention the wildlife emerges in April and can be a primetime for bear sitings.
