As I write this, I’m looking out the window and watching snow dump with a mighty fury…and I. don’t. hate. it. I had my first “floating through powder” run this morning and I think it’s safe to say that with the Bridger Gondola and Marmot opening on Saturday, this weekend is going to rule in Teton Village. Here’s whats going on this weekend when you’re not carving fresh tracks out on the hill and snapchatting the evidence.
Jackson’s Got Talent: Fundraiser for Nepal
Location: Hotel Terra Ballroom in Teton Village
Time: Friday at 6 pm
Information: Come out for a night of TALENT as locals do there best to impress us! This is a talent fundraiser for rebuilding homes destroyed in April’s Nepal earthquake. Tickets from $75.00 – $150.00.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: We are privileged to live in an incredible valley with many resources within our reach. If you have no plans after you ski all day on Friday, consider attending this fundraiser. It’s for a great cause and I’m pretty sure that you can write off charitable donations on your taxes if you keep the receipt…
Corb Lund at The Pink Garter
Location: The Pink Garter Theater in Downtown Jackson
Time: Friday at 10 pm, Tickets available here.
Information: Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 9:00 pm (event ends at 11:59 pm)
THE INSIDE SCOOP: Live music with your cronies??? Best night ever! There’s a 74% chance I’ll be at this show after I make dinner with my roommates.
Holiday Artist Bazaar
Location: Snow King Arena
Time: Saturday from 9-4, Free admission
Information: Art from local artists for sale.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: I’ve always wanted to text my friends “Wanna get bizarre at the bazaar?!” and this seems to be my chance. Just hope that you’re that lucky pal who gets the text.
Locals Appreciation Holiday Party and Ugly Sweater Contest
Location: The Silver Dollar Showroom in The Wort Hotel
Time: Saturday from 730-11pm, Free admission
Information: Raffle for a season pass to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: If you’re a local and like to feel appreciated AND have an ugly sweater that doesn’t get enough attention–THIS IS THE PARTY FOR YOU! The Silver Dollar always throws a good party and it’s a great last chance to get a Grand Pass to access the copious powder that’s falling right now in Teton Village.
Live Funk Music at The Rose
Location: The Rose in Downtown Jackson
Time: Saturday at 10 pm
Information: Free to the public, Must be 21+ to enter.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: This is very similar to my comment about the Bazaar, BUTTT I’ve had a longtime wish to text a friend “Let’s get funky!” and have it actually relate to a funk concert. My punny bucket list is seeing some serious progress this weekend, so feel free to throw me a high five if you see me at any/all of these events.
Artist Reception: Mike Tierney
Location: Daly Projects at 130 S. Jackson Street
Time: Tuesday, Dec 15th from 5:30-7:30 pm
Information: Mike Tierney, the artist of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s official 50th art, will be showcasing his work next week at Daly Projects. He’s someone to be celebrated, so be sure to stop by!
THE INSIDE SCOOP: I’ve had the honor of seeing a selection of Mike Tierney’s work and he’s truly a modern artist. His work with spray paint and stencils and unlike anything I’ve ever seen, so I’ll definitely be making the time to attend this event. If you need some culture if your life, this is your time!
Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy all of this SNOW!
