Winter temperatures in the Tetons can range from zero to 20°F (-18°C to -7°C) throughout the day. Sub-zero temperatures are common, especially at night and at higher elevations. The record low temperature is -66°F (-54°C). The first heavy snows fall by November 1 and continue through April. Annual snowfall averages nearly 150 inches in most of the park, and at higher elevations, 200–400 inches of snowfall have been recorded.
What to Bring
Winter weather in the Tetons can be severe, but it’s fun to brave the cold when you’re dressed appropriately. One of the most important tips for attire in this environment is: Wear layers.
Your layering lineup should include a windproof, hooded outer layer and base layers, like wool or synthetic long underwear, for your upper and lower body. Avoid cotton jeans and sweatshirts; these items lack wicking ability leaving you wet and cold. Choose thick socks and sturdy boots. Warm hats are a must since you lose most of your heat from your head, and don’t forget the gloves/mittens to keep those fingers warm.
Pro tip: Disposable hand-warmers stuffed into gloves or mittens can be a comfort saver for those who get cold easily or have poor hand circulation.
And don’t forget to bring your bathing suit for your soak at Astoria Hot Springs.
