Winter and Summer Jobs at Togwotee Mountain Lodge
Togwotee Mountain Lodge (TML) is a year-round resort located in the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
In the summer season (June-Sept.) we take advantage of the warmer weather with all types of outdoor activities. TML provides horseback riding onsite, ranging from one hour to full day beginner rides. Working with vendors in the Jackson Hole valley TML also books fishing, hiking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, float trips, and covered wagon cookouts. Hiking opportunities are endless in this region with the Bridger Teton National Forest and Wind River Mountains out our front door, the Teton Wilderness out our back door, Grand Teton National Park located 15 minutes west and Yellowstone about 45 minutes from our location.
In the winter season (Dec.-April) we offer extensive snowmobiling, including extreme riding in the 2.5 million acres of land surrounding us with over 600 miles of groomed trails. We also provide Snow Cat Skiing, Dog sledding, and Yellowstone Snowmobile or Snow Coach trips. Several employees bring equipment to enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowboarding in the National Forest.
Between our seasons—April/May & Oct/Nov - we continue to employ a few housekeepers, maintenance and our management staff.
