Ski Wyoming, USA

For many of us Wyoming conjures up images of cowboys and Indians, spectacular wild-west scenery and rodeos.  Visitors to this beautiful state will not be disappointed; it has all that and much more.   If you have time to take out from your winter sports activities, there is plenty of history to he explored.  

 

Wyoming has many historic sites and museums where you can get a glimpse into the days when the emigrant trails passed through the state, from old forts, prisons and battlefields to historic western towns and Native Indian sites. One of Wyoming’s most famous attractions is Yellowstone National Park and the steam of Old Faithful’s geothermal geyser.

 

When it comes to winter sports, probably the most well known names in Wyoming skiing are Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee. Other ski areas and resorts in Wyoming include places with very magical names:  Antelope Butte, Big Horn Resort, Deer Haven, Hogadon Ski Area, Meadowlark Lake Resort, Pahaska Tepee, Pine Creek Ski Area, Sleeping Giant, Snow King, Snowy Range and White Pine Ski Area.
