Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway offer a variety of outdoor activities and, of course, skiing and snowboarding. This area also has superior wildlife-viewing opportunities. There are unique shopping venues, excellent dining and luxurious spa experiences to be had here. With more than 4,000-vertical feet of varied terrain, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort draws expert and beginner skiers and snowboarders alike from around the world.

Situated at the base of the mountain is the Swiss-style Teton Village. Everything one needs for a great vacation is crowded together here: lodges, espresso stands, restaurants, gift shops, spa facilities, groceries, storage lockers, car rentals, and child care.

PARK ENTRY FEES: $30 for per private vehicle; $25 for a motorcycle; or $15 for each visitor 16 years and older entering by foot, bicycle, ski, etc. These fees provide the visitor with a 7-day entrance permit for Grand Teton National Park and the John D.
