Support Jackson Hole Nordic Alliance’s non-profits at Old Bill’s

Winter is, yes, right around the corner. Support all your favorite JH Nordic Alliance non-profits, who bring so much to our community, putting our kids (from ages 6-19) on skis with ski & snowboard programs and coaching, provide Nordic grooming in Grand Teton National Park, access to winter trails – groomed and wilderness – on Bridger-Teton US Forest public lands, trail ambassador programs to keep you informed and safe, groomed fat bike trails, leading wildlife expeditions and place-based education, and stewardship of our public lands all year round.

Fall Wildlife Tours

Wildlife will soon be descending back into the valleys surrounding Jackson Hole, as temperatures push them lower and the annual rutting season begins. JHNordic GPS trail maps (search: “summer hikes icon” on the Trail search page) are a useful resource for summer and fall self-guided hikes. Not sure where to see the elk, moose, bison, pronghorn antelope, and maybe a bear? 

 Join our leading local wildlife expert tours: 

to increase your opportunity to see our megafauna (and mini-fauna ) and learn more about their circle-of-life and ecosystems this fall. 

Bring your bear spray, give all wildlife a safe distance (“100 yard Pledge”), wear a mask/buff if you are close to others on the trails or wildlife watching.
