Sure, these boots were made for skiing and snowboarding. But at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, they were made for après-ski as well. Most places in Teton Village welcome patrons clomping in boots.
- No need to change out of your snow duds to enjoy the Lobby Lounge sushi and gastro pub fare at the Four Seasons. Most afternoons host live music too, which means dancing in boots is de rigueur.
- The Mangy Moose Saloon, a après mainstay, welcomes one and all with its live music and draught beers. Most afternoons find a local band crooning as skiers and snowboarders carouse.
- Apres-ski runs high at the Spur bar in Teton Mountain Lodge – as high as the Teton Nachos, a mountain-sized pile of chips smothered in chicken, beef or pork with sour cream, beans, salsa and cheese.
- Nick Wilson’s has launched a mug club, aptly dubbed the “I Got the Boot!” People can purchase a limited number of cowboy-boot-shaped mugs, a trophy that comes with a t-shirt and cheap refills all winter long. Mugs and t-shirts are also sold as souvenirs.
- Ever the afternoon hub, Nick Wilson also added a new après-appetizer to its menu – The Tram Sampler – a Tram-size plate piled high with favorite nibbles like wings, sliders, Portobello fries and “tot-chos” (spud nachos).
