Location & Directions
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Jenny Lake Lodge is located in the heart of Grand Teton National Park, approximately a 30 minute drive from Jackson Hole Airport.
When to go
Jackson Hole has an extreme continental climate with very cold winters and warm summers. Activities are very seasonal. Spring, from late April to June, is marked by mild days and cold nights, with some rain and occasional snow. It is in spring that newborn elk, moose, bison and bears start appearing. Summers offer warm days and cool nights and a profusion of brightly colored wildflowers. In autumn, the aspen and cottonwood run gold and red. The days are sunny, with cold nights. Rain eventually gives way to snow. Winter brings with it enough deep snow to keep a skier happy well into April. It also brings the elk to the valley. They come down from the mountains by the thousands to the National Elk Refuge, which lies at the very edge of town.
