15 images of Wyoming that will get you psyched for winter

This is not a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing in Wyoming—this is just winter. To experience it yourself, hop on one of the tours near the Jackson Hole area, or hit up the aforementioned National Elk Refuge (between December and March, of course).Photo: Wyoming Office of Tourism

In most places, winter is a four-month drag. It means scraping car windows, trudging through dirty snow, and holing up until “the weather gets better.” It means seasonal blues, holiday stress, and salt stains on your boots. But for winter sports and wildlife enthusiasts in Wyoming, the reality is altogether different. Winter is go-time for these folks, and when the powder hits, they know it’s on.

So join them, and get psyched — this is winter in Wyoming.
