Arrival Day Secrets for Families
Skip Rental Shop Lines in the Morning
We know the struggle of getting organized during the first morning of skiing. Waking up, getting the family breakfast, dressing the kids, purchasing rental equipment and organizing ski school is a daunting task. At JHMR, we want to make this process as hassle free as possible which is why we offer early rental pick up at JH Sports, Teton Village Sports and Hoback Sports. Simply walk into the rental shop of your choice after 1 pm the day you arrive and begin the rental process or pick up your reservation.
Ski Storage Made EasyAfter a long day of skiing "The Big One", the last thing families want to do is haul their skis back to the hotel. Most hotels have ski storage in Teton Village, but if you are staying off slope skip making the journey of carrying heavy skis around town and reserve slope side storage at JH Sports.
Grocery Shopping in Jackson
The first day of a vacation in a new location is always a bit disorientating and figuring out where to get groceries is a priority for families. If you are staying in the town of Jackson, there are several supermarkets within 10 miles of town square and a well organized system of public trasportation can help you get there. For those staying in Teton Village, the Bodega and General Store are small grocery options or take the START Bus to any of the downtown supermarkets.
Non-Skiing Activities for Arrival Day
In the heart of Teton Village, in front of Teton Village Sports and Mountain Khakis, is a series of snow forts and a small sledding hill where kids can work out the wiggles when you arrive. Let your kids play while you apres at the nearby Nick Wilson's or Mangy Moose.
