There’s a little romance and enchantment associated with winter in my book. The winter here embodies this sense of togetherness and small adventures that make winter so fun. The cozy nights by a fireplace, the red rosy cheeks, sleigh rides, snow falling, and moonlight on a white night. The romance of winter is quite possibly endless, but more than that, in Jackson, it’s contagious.
It’s no secret that summer in Jackson is Mecca for couples to be betrothed. The limitless beautiful views and a quaint town make a lovely place to get married. But, I would like to highlight what I think is the most romantic thing of all… mountains in the winter.
Great storm we just went through!!! We have received 46” inches of new snow since this cycle started. Our base depth is now 81” on top and 59” at mid, with total snowfall at 18 feet (216”) for the season. The skiing and riding have been great. This is what it looked like this week in Jackson Hole.
With a ton of snow and wind, patrol had to dig out Corbet’s Cabin.
SNOW STATS the past 72 hours as of Monday night have been something like this:
TODAY 10 ‘’
On January 16th, 2014 the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is hosting an Eco Night at Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village. The events will start at Nick Wilson’s Cowboy Café at 4pm with a selection of $3 Snake River beers for happy hour. All profits from the beer sales will be donated to Hole Food Rescue, a local non-profit started by a Nick Wilson’s employee. Doors to Walk Festival Hall open at 5:30 pm and an unprecedented number of local non-profits will be on hand with information prior to the movie screening of Chasing Ice. Head over to Walk Festival Hall at 5:30 to check out exhibits from local organizations. At 6:45 there will be a screening of “Chasing Ice” a 2012 documentary film about the efforts of environmental photographer James Balog and his Extreme Ice Survey to publicize the effects of climate change. We hope you will join us for this exciting and educational evening.
Après-ski (n. /aep. rei’ski:/)
- Social events or activities that are concerned with or designed for use after skiing.
- A time to get sauced after a hard day of skiing or riding.
- Going out, having drinks, dancing, and generally socializing after skiing. Popular where skiers often stop at bars on their last run of the day while still wearing all of your ski gear.
Whatever your definition might be, it is a special nugget in the day to settle at one of your favorite bars/restaurants and take it all in. For us, we have a few local spots that we always gravitate towards to see our friends and share the stoke of the ski day.
So for those visiting and that want to be in the know, and for those that are new in town, we thought we would take you on an après ski tour in Teton Village to our favorite spots (aka where the locals tend to go) and tell you a few secrets.
Happy New Year!
Are you looking for things to do in Jackson while you visit…look no further for winter fun!
Yeap, you guessed it. Big Horn Sheep.
Nestled just outside of the town square, you can drive down a dirt road onto the National Elk Refuge and see these guys most days during the winter season! (more…)
Over 9″ of fresh snow have fallen over the past two days in Jackson Hole, bringing us to over 13 feet on the season. Since the Jackson Hole valley lives and breathes snow, we couldn’t be happier about our New Years gift. Between the Torchlight Parade, Fireworks and deep powder skiing, Jackson Hole is starting off 2014 in a big way!
Jeff Brines starts the year off right, sinking his teeth into some deep snow underneath the Sublette chair.
Don’t worry about finding enough time in your busy vacation schedule to visit the town square. Many of the shops and restaurants are open late so you can enjoy all the outdoor activities that Jackson Hole has to offer and still have time to explore all the shops, galleries and restaurants that make Jackson such a lively place. So go ahead, ski until the last bell, take a dogsled to granite hot springs or spend a little more time on that snow machine, because the town square will be jumping well past sundown. Of course it is always best to call ahead to make sure that a specific business is open. Click here for a list of businesses that have committed to staying open until at least 8pm Thursday through Saturday from January 3rd 2014 until March 28th 2014.
