This year marked our first time to Jackson Hole, WY and we absolutely fell in love with this culturally rich ski area. Set in the Teton mountain range, this place is nothing short of amazing. The natural beauty is astounding everywhere you turn. Sean and I were there just in time for major snowstorms. This meant there was plenty of fresh powder stashes & the skiing was top notch. There is diverse terrain no matter what your ability. Watch our video HERE.
If skiing is not your thing, this is a great place to try it for the first time. If you don’t want to, then there are so many other things to do and you can stay as busy as you wish. If you just want to relax by the fire, this is the place to do that too!

The food & Aprés ski are especially noteworthy. Jackson Hole is a world class resort that attracts guests from around the world. They take great pride in their ski mountain and their cuisine.
We stayed at The Four Seasons Jackson Hole and were pampered in every way. I highly recommend this ski-in, ski-out located in the heart of the Teton Village. This is the closest you can get to the ski hill when at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (also known as JHMR.) It couldn’t be easier to hit the slopes when staying at this location. The lifts are literally steps from the hotel. There is also a wonderfully spacious spa and a pool that’s not to be missed! Our slope-side room was sumptuous and so comfortable. It was had to leave the decadent Four Seasons bed!
There are plenty of restaurants and bars in the grand timber lodge, which makes it easy to cozy up and stay indoors when the winds are howling. The culinary options are diverse and sure to satisfy both gourmands and rustic comfort food enthusiasts.
Watch the video to see how they turned this tostada stack into nachos!
If you’ve worked up an appetite on the slopes then head on over to the Piste Mountain Bistro. We shared the Reuben and the Bacon & Egg Salad. Both are delicious and belly filling for worked skiers. We finished it all off with Boozy Hot Chocolate. A great way to warm up before heading back out to brave the storm!
The town of Jackson (about a 15 minute drive from the ski village) is a combo of rustic cowboy meets trendy, modern boutiques and galleries. There are also remarkable restaurants and watering holes. We stayed at the historic, centrally located Wort Hotel while there. Two iconic bars to check out are the Silver Dollar (located inside the Wort) and just around the corner is the famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. We also very much enjoyed the food and drinks at Local restaurant located right next door. We shared the Hot Wings and the House-Made Sausage, we will return for both!
For coffee, pastries and all kinds of delicious nibbles head over to Persephone bakery in Jackson.
Just a few miles outside of Jackson is the Grand Teton National Park and the National Elk Refuge. At the refuge there are regularly scheduled tours to see the elk in their natural habitat. Both areas are spectacular no matter what the season.
