I love to travel and I am always looking for my next great adventure. My best friend and I used to travel together quite often and she mentioned that she really wanted to go to Wyoming sometime next year. I realized that I have never been to Wyoming and I actually knew very little about the state! How much do you know about the grand state of Wyoming? I sat down and put my Google skills to use to find out what Wyoming has to offer and I found a few fun facts!
Yellowstone was the first official national Park, established in 1872 - and the majority of the park lies within the boundaries of Wyoming!
Wyoming has the smallest population of all the states in America, yet it was the first state to give women the right to vote!
Wyoming is also a premier destination for winter travel, with majestic landscapes that are made even more beautiful during the winter when they are covered in snow. There are so many things to do in Wyoming during the winter, and while skiing and snowboarding are a great way to get the adrenaline pumping in Wyoming, that's just the beginning of the fun!
Things to Do in Wyoming
Wyoming is home to five hot springs, which are all open year-round and open to the public!
Try your hand at ice fishing!
Explore Jackson Hole's Museums and Historical Sites! Jackson Hole was settled by traders and trappers in the 1800s and has a well preserved history for you to discover!
Love wildlife? Put on your furry boots and head out to Yellowstone National Park, the National Elk Refuge or Grand Teton National Park to watch elk, bison and otters in their natural habitat. Check out the Wyoming Office of Tourism to find out more about all of the outdoor activities Wyoming has to offer you this winter!
Take a peek at some of the incredible sights of a Wyoming winter:
Still thinking about the snowboarding?
The chance to ski, snowboard, and snowmobile in some of the most incredible trails and steepest mountains attract locals and tourists, as well as professionals like pro-snowboarder Travis Rice. Travis is a Wyoming native, born in Jackson Hole and he's the best big mountain snowboarder the world has ever seen! Travis and his production company, Brain Farm, want to share their love of Wyoming and have captured amazing footage of gorgeous Wyoming lands. He also designed - in collaboration with Tim Tomkinson - his own Wyoming themed Lib Tech snowboards to shred mountains and allow other snowboarders to do the same.
It is said that worries and troubles melt-away with the sharp turn of skis or boarding through a freshly snow powdered glade.
You can get your chance to enjoy this fantastic experience in the Roam with Rice Sweepstakes. The Grand Prize is a trip for 2 to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and two Wyoming Travis Rice Lib Tech Edition autographed snowboards.
The 2nd prize - which will be awarded to ten winners - is one of Wyoming Travis Rice Lib Tech Edition autographed snowboards!
For more information and the official rules head over to Roam with Rice Sweepstakes.
How would you #RoamFree during #WinterinWyoming?
I traveled all over the area when I was a child. I was blessed to see much of this nation already, and I'd love to head back out west and see it again!
A trip to Wyoming would be awesome! Hubby and I hope to start traveling more some day (hopefully soon).

I have been to Wyoming once as a child and loved it. I would love to go back now that I am older and would have even more appreciation for the beautiful scenery.
It looks like such a beautiful place to go for a vacation!!! I don't know if I would want to leave!!!
We have a family reunion up in Wyoming every year and absolutely love the scenery! This would be such a cool vaca to win!

I would love a trip to wyoming, it would be so perfect!
I am itching to go somewhere, anywhere really, soon! Wyoming is one of the places I would like to visit some day for sure. It is just beautiful.
This sounds like the perfect place for my family to visit. We love anything where we can be active and get outdoors - though we are just learning to snowboard and ski this year - first time near enough snow!

I have never been to Wyoming so I would love to win just for that reason. My daughter designs skateboards so I am sure she'd love to see these.
Looks like a great place to getaway for the outdoor adventure lover. Someone is going to have a great prize.
I have never been to the state of Wyoming. It looks so beautiful. I tried snowboarding once and let me tell you I am much better at skiing!
This looks like the perfect getaway. I have always wanted to visit Wyoming.
It is amazingly beautiful there. I wouldn't mind winning a trip.
I'd love a nice getaway there with my husband. It's is spectacular!
I am in now way a snowsports master, but I'd love to win this just so I could take in the view everyday.
I would love to visit Wyoming. Also, I have never visited a natural spring. So, that would be really nice to experience.
Wyoming would be a great place to have a vacation. There are so many beautiful places to explore.

I have never been to Wyoming before, sounds really nice and the resort sounds like a place I would not want to leave!
It looks so beautiful there. I love the green, it's so brown here. And hot!
I have not traveled all that much but I would love to visit every state at least once.
I have been to Wyoming a handful of times and have been very impressed. Would love to explore it more.
I am definitely a city girl that prefers warm weather and have never experienced a vacation anywhere close to this. It would be great to win and expand my horizons a bit.
