March Radness is here! It’s time for outdoor concerts, epic skiing/riding and awesome events all month long, so pull out your neon and join the Radness movement! Also, apply copious amounts of sunscreen when the sun is out, because no one likes a sunburned ripper. See you on the slopes!
Dick’s Ditch Classic Banked Slalom
Location: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Teton Village
Time: Friday through Sunday

THE INSIDE SCOOP: Dick’s Ditch, known in the formal community as Richard’s Ditch, is a spectacle not to miss. The weather is cooperating for spectators, so put on your sunnies, pack a snack/beverage and take it all in.
Moose Hockey vs. Vermont
Location: Snow King Ice Arena
Time: Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 pm
Information: Admission is $10 at the door.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: Go to the game on Friday or Saturday!! It saddens me to inform you that this is your last opportunity to see the Moose play this season. Be sure to get a healthy dose of hockey camaraderie before the ice melts and the hockey sticks go into storage (or wherever hockey sticks are supposed to go).
Camille Rae and District 26
Location: The Mangy Moose in Teton Village
Time: Friday at 9 pm
Information: Camille Rae and District 26 brings a refreshing new turn to country music. Their sound, stage presence, energy and likemindedness sets them apart from many other bands. Think of it as 90’s country meets the next big thing; that “thing” that everyone is missing and looking for in country music today.
THE INSIDE SCOOP: I love it when country bands perform at The Mangy Moose. If you’re looking for an authentic Wyoming evening, make your way to this concert on Friday night. Maybe stretch beforehand, because there will inevitably be dancing.
Screen Door Porch
Location: Silver Dollar Bar in The Wort Hotel
Time: Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm
Information: SCREEN DOOR PORCH delivers a Wyoming-grown fusion of Country-Blues, Roots-Rock and soulful Americana akin to “Stevie Nicks meets The Band, with Ryan Adams and Bonnie Raitt hanging out backstage” (605 Magazine).
THE INSIDE SCOOP: A local’s favorite, Screen Door Porch is guaranteed to please. My recommendation is to get there a little early to snag a table and some delicious finger foods (aka the quesadilla). Once you’ve proteined up, you’ll be ready to show your moves on the dance floor. See. you. there.
Music Under the Tram- Canyon Kids
Location: Next to Nick Wilson’s, Teton Village
Time: Saturday at 3 pm
Information: Year 5 of this massively popular free spring concert series. Great bands entertain the crowds every Saturday in March in this unforgettable, sunny location, slopeside under the tram.. Grab your friends, and après like there is no tomorrow!
THE INSIDE SCOOP: March is here, so Music Under the Tram is here! Sport your flyest “outdoor concert gear” and give March the respect it deserves! The winter season is flying, so it’s important to cherish every little moment.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: If you’re a Dead Head, you should not miss this show. If you don’t know what a Dead head is, maybe it’s time that you find out. If you hate all of these hypothetical sentences, I’m truly sorry.
Uncle Stackhouse at The Tavern
Location: The Town Square Tavern in Downtown Jackson
Time: Saturday at 10 pm
