This Summer, Join Our Team at Togwotee Mountain Lodge, Your Gateway to Adventure!
Nestled high in the mountains of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Togwotee Mountain Lodge has earned its reputation as the World's Premier Snowmobile destination for winter vacation sports. In the summer, Togwotee is the perfect place to be for exploring both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, as well as the gorgeous mountain ranges of Wind River and the Absaroka's.
Togwotee Mountain Lodge is located in the Bridger-Teton National Forest - 16 miles from Grand Teton National Park and 47 miles from the South Gate of Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.
About Togwotee Mountain Lodge
Located at the base of Angle Mountain and spread over 88 acres, Togwotee Mountain Lodge offers 88 guest rooms (54 cabins, 28 lodge rooms and 6 suites), casual dining experiences at the Red Fox Saloon or Grizzly Grill, a Fireside Lounge that includes a fireplace and pool table, as well as cook outs and horseback riding! Oh, and did we mention the gorgeous views of the Teton Mountain Range from property?!
In the summer season (May-Oct.) we take advantage of the warmer weather with all types of outdoor activities, for guests and employees alike. TML provides horseback riding onsite, ranging from one hour to overnight 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 20 minutes west and Yellowstone about an hour 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 offer dog sledding onsite! Several employees bring equipment to enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowboarding in the National Forest.
Between our seasons—April & Nov - we continue to employ a few housekeepers, maintenance and our management staff.
