I am thinking about traveling to Jackson Hole in March with my husbnad and 3 children. What activites are available for Mid-March?
Mid-March is part of our winter. So you have all the usual winter activities. Consider downhill skiing; cross-country skiing and snowshoe hiking in GTNP; snow coach trip into YNP; snowmobile in the national forest; visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art; take the tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain for views of the valley; sleigh ride into the elk herds in the National Elk Refuge; drive the Elk Refuge Rd., do some snow activities at Snow King; ride a dogsled; take a sleigh ride to lunch or dinner; soak in a hot spring. Here are some links that might be helpful:
Access to Yellowstone depends on when in March -- mid-March over snow travel into Yellowstone stops and no roads will be open until mid-April. Early March you could arrange snow coach or snowmobile tours into the park.
Here are this winter's closure dates for oversnow access to YNP.
Oversnow travel ends in March. Roads close at 9 PM on the days listed:
March 1, 2011—East Entrance to Lake Butte (Sylvan Pass.)
March 6: Mammoth to Norris closes at 9 pm
March 8: Norris Junction to Madison Junction and Norris Junction to Canyon closes at 9 pm
March 13: Canyon to Fishing Bridge closes at 9 pm
March 15, 2011—All other groomed roads in the park are closed
