With one of the deepest snowpacks in Jackson Hole history, snow currently falling and 3 nights of free live music, the first annual Jackson Hole Rendezvous is sure to be one for the books. Thursday through Saturday night is loaded with incredible live music: Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe on Thursday, Blues Traveler on Friday and Michael Franti & Spearhead on Saturday.
FULL EVENT SCHEDULE.
The Jackson Hole Rendezvous fun isn’t limited to just live music at night. Music Under the Tram will be rocking from 3-5 PM on Friday/Saturday/Sunday afternoons, ramping up the hype for the main stage concerts and following great days of skiing/riding on a snowpack that is over 120″ deep.

Jax n’ Lance here to share a really special post with you. This post is special for two reasons. One, because it is a sneak peak at our wedding day that took place at the Top Of the World (Rendezvous Peak) on the Spring Equinox (March 20th) last week. Two, because Lance is on the other side of the camera and in the photos too =)
We took a morning this week and did a little winter adventure that you can only do in Jackson Hole. We toured the elk refuge being pulled by two massive Belgian horses, and saw the nations largest elk herd up close and personal.

I can’t believe Ski School has already come to an end! My kids, ages 5 and 8, had a great experience with the Saturday program this year and my husband and I took full advantage of the opportunity for some ski dates on Saturdays.
The snow keeps coming! The report was 12″ this morning, pushing us to 453″ on the season. The Rendezvous Bowl plot is currently sitting at 136″, the second deepest it’s been on record for this date (March 18th) in history. Needless to say, the skiing has been incredible this season. The latest foot skied amazingly well and hoots and hollers were audible all across the mountain.

Jax n’ Lance here for en epic low down on that bevy that gets us stoked for the POWDER day: COFFEE
Right now as I type, I have a french press full of peaberry coffee roasted just 72 hours ago from beans that arrived last Friday. Not only is it flat out delicious, it is how I wake up to take on the day.
Skiing with your kids can be a really amazing experience, it can also be really challenging. Finding the right equipment is 70% of the battle, the other 30% is getting them out the door and then carrying all that crap the base of the lifts. If you’re planning a spring break trip, or just a long weekend even, make sure you’ve got the right goods for your kids to have a great time too! This will ensure happy skiers and happy parents for years to come.
On Saturday I dropped Gemma off in ski school, and as I prepared to leave to go skiing with my wife and friends – she asked “Dad, will you stay and watch me ski?” I never would have guessed it before I had kids, but I can honestly say there are few things in my life that can rival the exhilaration of watching my kids taking on the challenges of the mountains, and loving the experience. Jenn Wood – Gemma’s tireless Kids Ranch Instructor was happy to have me tag along. The whole experience was a blast, watching Jenn giving the kids freedom to roam, while teaching them how to be safe, and watching all these 5 year old girls tear around the mountain so easily. Growing up in JH is a rare privilege.
