Overview

Join a professional photography guide for a private, photography oriented wildlife photo tour of Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. We will share our knowledge of photography technique and equipment with ample time for photographing your unique areas of interest. This often includes finding and safely photographing wildlife, historic structures and area scenery. You will see places like antelope flats, the ‘Shane’ cabins, the small town of Kelly and have views of several mountain ranges that form the valley of Jackson Hole. Jackson Hole’s wintering wildlife is abundant with opportunities to photograph bighorn sheep, bison, elk, deer, moose, fox, coyote, bald eagles, golden eagles, trumpeter swans, and if we’re lucky, wolves. We will customize this pro photo safari tour based on your experience level and areas of interest. If you want to be a better photographer, this is the safari for you.

What is the weather like during the winter?

Winter in Jackson Hole ranges from early November to early April. Average high temperatures in the valley during the winter season range from 27F to 52F, (-3C to 11C), but daily temperatures can fluctuate far below freezing at times. The valley floor will typically see snow from October through April and in the high alpine elevations, it usually snows from September to June. The high elevation of Jackson Hole has been known to create wild temperature fluctuations from night to day, sometimes by 50F degrees or more. It is important to come prepared for winter conditions, as they can vary.

Winter photography is most satisfying because you are recording images few others have attempted. Frequently, wildlife will not flee as quickly in winter; if you make slow movements, most wildlife will go about feeding and their other daily activities.

 

Winter Wildlife in Jackson Hole, Wyoming

December 4, 2012

Hundreds of mule deer will gather to graze on the relatively snow free slopes of east and west Gros Ventre buttes overlooking the thousands of elk gathered below grazing the lower elevation meadows with the largest herds found just north of Jackson on the National Elk Refuge. A short drive onto the elk refuge from the east side of town will lead to Miller butte where a large herd of wintering big horn sheep can be viewed daily. It is not uncommon to see rams sparring or young lambs chasing each other over and across the rock faces of the butte. Bison will be scattered throughout the valley depending on snowfall but can usually be found on the elk refuge or on the eastern foothills of the Gros Ventre range north of the town of Kelly.
