When it comes to infusing energy and inspiration into your team, few settings are as compelling as Jackson Hole. Renowned for its breathtaking landscapes and outdoor adventures, Jackson Hole offers a unique backdrop for corporate retreats and activities. This isn’t just about stepping out of the office; it’s about stepping into an environment that fosters teamwork, creativity, and unforgettable experiences. In this blog, we explore a range of activities in Jackson Hole that are perfect for corporate groups looking to blend business with the thrill of the great outdoors. From tranquil scenic float trips on the Snake River to team-building challenges in the shadow of the Tetons, we’ll guide you through the best this mountain town has to offer for your next corporate retreat.

Adventure-Based Team Building Activities

Mountain Biking, Zip lines, and more 

Snow King Mountain Resort is located on the edge of downtown Jackson and hosts multiple activities including hiking, mountain biking, zip lining, and an alpine slide. Because of the variety of activities, Snow King is a great place for team building, allowing each member to choose a different activity and interact with others. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is another great option with activities including extreme mountain biking, Via Ferrata (mountain climbing), the Aerial Tram, and the Gondola. 



The southern edge of Teton National Park is only eight minutes north of downtown Jackson and hosts a plethora of hiking trails for all ability levels. This is great options for spending quality time with team members, while also enjoy the fresh air and mountain views. 


Whitewater Rafting

Rafting down the whitewater section of the Snake River is an exhilarating experience that requires team players, high communication, and fun! Each member of the boat works together to steer in the right direction, helping build communication and creating important bonds. This whitewater trip is usually around 3 hours in length, which makes it a great half day activity.

Scenic Tours and Relaxing Excursions

Scenic Float Tours

The scenic section of the Snake River flows directly through the center of the valley and is only ten minutes from Teton Village and downtown Jackson. This scenic section includes majestic Grand Teton views and abundant wildlife, creating a relaxing atmosphere to get to know each team member better. Experience a Jackson Hole scenic float with a custom raft with chairs at Teton Scenic Float Tours and include everyone in a relaxing activity. 


Wildlife Safari trips are recommended for groups who want to explore both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. A wildlife tour guide can give insightful facts on the history and ecology of the area. Larger wildlife tour companies with multiple guides can also use their radios and cell phones to alert other guides where the wildlife is hiding, which is beneficial for larger groups. Wildlife tours are a great way to experience something new with other team members.

Culinary Adventures and Local Dining

A Jackson Hole Retreat is not complete without a visit to one of the many local farms to table restaurants: nothing brings people together like sharing a great meal! There is an abundance of options to choose from including Classic American, Thai inspired, Mexican, and more. 


The Jackson Hole Farmer’s Market, which occurs on Saturdays throughout the summer on town square, is also a great place to find local meats and vegetables. Many of the vegetables are grown in greenhouses in the Victor and Driggs Idaho. Slow Food in the Tetons is a nonprofit organization that has several events throughout the summer, such as the Farm to Fork Festival in early October. A variety of classes like mushroom gathering or how to butcher an Elk in the open field are offered, providing a space to learn new skills together. 

Cultural and Educational Opportunities 

There are numerous local museums, art galleries, and historical sites in the area that can add a cultural touch to the retreat. The National Museum of Wildlife Art is open 5 days a week for lunch, and corporate groups can rent out the museum for a private event. The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum is currently open in the summer, located a couple blocks from downtown, providing a great stop to check out some history of the local area, walking tours, and educational programs. 

Customizable Group Activities 

There are many guest ranches north of Jackson Hole that cater to corporate retreat activities including Moose Creek Ranch, Lost Creek Ranch, Red Rock Ranch, Hatchet Resort, and Flat Creek Ranch. These locations are great because they can meet the needs of the group by hosting workshops, bringing in private chefs, and more. 


In Teton Village, hotels such as Teton Mountain Lodge, Hotel Terra, Snake River Lodge and Spa, and the Four Seasons Hotel are also great options as they all have large meeting halls.

Jackson Hole proves to be an exceptional backdrop for corporate retreats, seamlessly blending breathtaking natural beauty with top-notch amenities and activities. The immersive experiences, from team-building adventures to luxurious comforts of world-class resorts, creates a unique and conducive environment for fostering collaboration, innovation, and team cohesion. Jackson Hole doesn’t just offer a retreat: it provides a transformative experience that can leave a lasting impact on team dynamics, productivity, and overall well-being!
