Spring in Jackson Hole is an excellent time for outdoor activities, including skiing — it’s the best time to avoid the crowds. Fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing are popular as well. The annual ElkFest is not to be missed, and the luxury resort Creek Spring Ranch, situated on a butte 1,000 feet above the town of Jackson, is popular among West Coast travelers all year round.
