Sinks Canyon State Park and Environs: See the unusual geological phenomenon at Sinks Canyon State Park – the Popo Agie River disappears into a cavern (the "Sinks") and then reappears in a trout-filled pool ¼ mile downstream (the "Rise"). The visitor center has interpretive materials, an overlook to the Sinks, and nature trails.
Hike a 1.5 mile trail to the 150-foot Popo Agie Falls. Rock climb at this internationally renowned area.

Sledding: Enjoy a day of sledding on one of the hills at Sinks Canyon State Park.
Snowmobile Trails: Enjoy the 70 miles of groomed trails in the Lander/Sinks Canyon area. Lander is the southern-most trailhead to the Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail and is one of the few Wyoming towns that allows snow machines on city streets. From here you can ride the trail uninterrupted into Yellowstone National Park.
Cross Country or Telemark Skiing: Here you will be surrounded by trees and scenic views of the Wind River Mountains. Try the 10 kilometers of groomed trails in the South Pass area. South Pass is known for great skiing and at 7,500 feet you will feel like you are at the top of the world. With the great views from the Lander golf course, you will feel like you are in the back-country while you ski on the groomed trails without leaving town.
