Winter enthusiasts frequent Wyoming for its wide variety of recreational opportunities, warm hospitality and cozy accommodations. Skiers and snowboarders can challenge the laws of gravity Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the nation’s #1 rated resort, while skiers and riders of all skill levels can enjoy plenty of powder – and shorter lines ­–at Grand Targhee and Snow King. For more unforgettable Wyoming slopes check out this list of  locals' favorite places to ski and ride.

Those with the drive for ascending frozen surfaces rather than gliding down them can sink their axes into innumerable routes near the ice-climbing mecca of Cody, Wyoming. For snowmobilers and cross-country skiers, the trails and terrain are as endless as the scenery is stunning and the wildlife plentiful. Even dog sledding is an option, with tours running through the Bridger-Teton and Shoshoni National Forests.

Of course, the charm of winter in Wyoming lies in the freedom of open opportunity; whether your dream winter getaway is fishing a frozen lake in the Sierra Madres, relaxing in a warm cabin, or experiencing Yellowstone in an entirely new light, the possibilities are as boundless as the imagination itself.
