Experience A Wyoming Winter in Wind River Country

Find room to roam™ and room to breathe™ this winter in Wyoming’s Wind River Country.

Located in western Wyoming, just beyond Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Teton Mountains, Wind River Country is where the landscape and authentic outdoor lifestyle provide access to world-class winter playgrounds.

Avoid the crowds and traffic along I-70 and come to Wind River Country to experience winter the way it’s meant to be – peaceful, serene and truly untouched. Home to Lander, Dubois, Riverton, the Wind River Indian Reservation and more, Wind River County offers countless winter adventures – from mild to wild – making it the perfect destination to explore this season.

Embrace all that the season has to offer with ice fishing at Boysen State Park and Reservoir, snowmobiling on the Continental Divide Trail, fat biking on the Dubois Overlook Trail and even rock climbing in t-shirts at the world-renowned Sinks Canyon near Lander all winter-long. Strap on snowshoes or skis and head to the backcountry of the Wind River or Absaroka Mountains, or to the perfectly-groomed Nordic trails found near Lander and Dubois. And, of course, don’t miss a once-in a lifetime experience: dog sledding on Togwotee Pass. 

The adventures are as diverse as the landscapes are wide. Affordable rates, easy access and friendly communities are waiting to welcome you. And, everything is done in a way that is naturally socially distanced and with appropriate health and safety protocols in place.   

A short, direct flight on United Express from Denver International Airport into Riverton, Wyoming, or an easy, six-hour drive means that you’ll have more time to play in Wind River County.
