Mid-May to Late September

Mid-May signifies the start of peak season at Grand Teton National Park. Average highs this time of year hover in the low 60s, but they'll rise to the lower 80s in July and August before descending into the 70s by late September. Tourist crowds and accommodation rates are at their highest levels of the year. Afternoon thunderstorms are common in July and August, so consider packing rain gear.

Key Events:

October to Early-May

In the wintertime, the weather is bitter with temperatures that regularly drop into the single digits. The snow falls heavy and accumulates quickly, which is one of the main reasons why many of the park's facilities, roads and accommodations shutter for the season. Still, it's the best time for cross-country skiers and snowershoers who want to make tracks across the remote winter wonderland.
