This winter Jackson Hole foodies have something to be seriously excited about: Jackson Hole Food and Wine is having its first winter event with special guest Tyler Florence. The organization’s first Winter Fest will take place March 8-10 in Teton Village. Since Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is one of the key sponsors, we wanted to provide all the details about the upcoming events. Here are the events that you can still snag a ticket to, but you better act fast as a few only have a couple of tickets left!
Big Wines, Small Plates
Thursday, March 8 from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
Held at Piste Mountain Bistro
This unique dining experience will feature a series of small plates illuminating the magical synergy of food and wine. A panel of experts will take you on a journey of “winter inspired” culinary moments that influenced these exceptional pairings. Chef Michael Britton of Piste Mountain Bistro is collaborating with Chef Tyler Florence’s team to create a fabulous tasting menu brilliantly matched with a stunning collection of wines. Drew Neiporent will MC the event and the panelists include Résonance winemaker Guillaume Large, local cattle rancher and snowboarder Mark Carter, among others.
Taste of Teton Village – The Best of Après Ski

Held in Four Seasons Ballroom
Tickets: $150 and available here.
This event offers guests an exclusive chance to taste a diverse range of après ski-inspired dishes along with over 75 incredible selections of wine, beer, and cocktails. Local DJ Rocky Vertone will be spinning tunes to get you in the après frame of mind. Look for favorites such as Spur’s famous 307 fries alongside The Handle Bar’s house-made charcuterie, while you sip on specialty cocktails made by Jackson Hole Stillworks or one of Melvin’s craft beers. Hole Food Rescue will be on hand asking attendees to earn their drink by peddling on the Hoback Sports bike blender.
