Wyoming Stage Stop Day 1 Jan. 27th 2017 : Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Jackson Hole is a valley encompassed by mountains, including plentiful and varied wildlife species, Grand Teton National Park, the Bridger Teton National Forest and the National Elk Refuge. While Grand Teton National Park lies in the heart of Jackson Hole, Yellowstone National Park is only a few miles to the north. Along the western side of the valley, the famous Teton Mountains rise into the sky. The awe-inspiring natural sights of the valley make it an extremely popular destination for many activities, events, sight seeing, and dining and shopping opportunities.
The race finishes at Snow King Mountain and following the last mushers arrival you can watch fireworks and a torch light parade on Snow King Mountain!
