Get Local: Top 5 Reasons to Run the Rendezvous Hillclimb

Top 5 Reasons to Run the Rendezvous Hillclimb Last year, I participated in the Rendezvous Mountain Hillclimb. This mountain running race is a long-standing tradition, and last year was held on a brand new course.  It’s hard, steep and exhilarating all at the same time.  So why accept the challenge to run to the top of Rendezvous Mountain on […]

Get Local: The Last of the Old West

Howdy folks, my name is Bill Lewkowitz. I am the Business Development Director for JHMR and have been working for the resort since 1984.  I have a great job and in winter, I try to get out on the mountain every morning to ski and I absolutely cannot miss a powder day.  When I moved […]

Get Local: Finding New Flavors at Piste Mountain Bistro

Last summer I took the time to write a few blogs about my foray into trail running with Born to Run coach, Eric Orton. And while I am loving the journey from this training, all that running certainly builds up an appetite! I’ll be honest, I love to eat, cook, drink and be merry. This summer, I […]

Free Trams, Always Better Than a Tie

Let’s face it – I have never been a huge supporter of Father’s Day. It’s not that I don’t feel the need to celebrate my father, it’s more that I’ve never been good at remembering to mark the day. This, inevitably, makes me feel like a bad son, which in turn makes me hate the whole […]

Get Local – Horseback Riding in Jackson Hole

Hello, I’m Julie Calder from the JHMR/JHRL Sales and Marketing team and I love horses. This is a serious understatement since I’ve spent most of my life hanging out in barns and riding horses. Growing up in the suburbs of Boston, I took my first riding lesson at age four on a horse named Taxi and never […]
