We know that recreational opportunities are a huge factor in choosing where to pursue seasonal employment. How you spend your time off the clock has a monumental impact on your overall summer experience. We feel confident in saying that you will be hard pressed to find a place with a greater scope for your adventurous spirit than Grand Teton National Park. 

There are endless hiking trails throughout the area, boating/canoeing on Jackson Lake, and plenty of mountain biking available within a short driving distance from the park. There is great fishing on Jackson Lake and the Snake River. The Jackson Hole area is known for its magnificent rock climbing, backpacking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and kayaking as well. Signal Mountain Lodge has a volleyball court, basketball court, horseshoes and bocce ball in the dorm area for staff use. There's a great swimming beach on Jackson Lake just a short walk from the staff housing area. We compete against the Park Service and various other area concessionaires in the inter-park softball league during the summer. We provide computers for staff use as well as FREE wireless internet in the staff housing area. HR organizes several outings and events throughout the season--everything from tie dying to trivia night to trips to Yellowstone. 

The town of Jackson offers some great shops, bars and restaurants and often has fantastic live music (much of which is free). There is a public library in town which issues temporary cards to seasonal employees. There are two movie theaters, a bowling alley, and not one, but two weekly outdoor markets!
