Wilson's Weekend Snowboarding Trip to Jackson, Wyoming
Aren’t 3 day weekends the best?! It’s so nice having that extra day to take a nice little getaway. As you long time readers know, Chad and I always give each other experiences over material gifts. This Christmas I planned a trip for President's Day weekend to Jackson Hole, Wyoming! Chad has always wanted to go up there and he’s a great snowboarder. We got some of our friends together and went up for a magical cozy mountain weekend. After spending the weekend going to all of the amazing restaurants, exploring the beautiful nature and riding the all the runs on the mountain, I can say without a doubt, Jackson is my favorite mountain destination I’ve ever been to. Below are some of my tips and recommendations for the best trip to Jackson
Travel Tips to Jackson Hole, Wyoming
If you’re renting a house, make sure to hit the Jackson Whole Grocer on the way up! It’s like a Whole Foods but better
⁃ For dinner, Snake River Grill is the nicest restaurant in town. You have to try the onion rings and the grilled octopus salad
⁃ When you’re riding or skiing the mountain make sure to get to the slopes early so you beat the lines. It’s a really cool system that’s so much better than a lift or gondola because it gets 100 people to the top of the mountain at one time
⁃ If you’re feeling sore from all the mountain activities make sure to go to the spa at the Four Seasons, there is nothing like the deep tissue massage with fire and ice salve
⁃ For the most magical experience ever, set up a sleigh ride to dinner with Jackson Hole Vintage Adventures! We got picked up in a sleigh driven by two Clydesdale horses. Dinner was set up in a heated tent with s’mores by a fire after! I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who decides to go so I’ll keep some things a surprise!
⁃ If you’re brunching in Jackson make sure to go to Lotus. They have everything from savory egg and quinoa bowls to delicious smoothies and gluten free flapjacks! You can’t go wrong!
⁃ In the mood for a little shopping? There’s a super cute boutique called Earthbound Collective that sells amazing crystals, sculptures and cute meaningful home goods
⁃ On the way out make sure to hit Persephone Bakery for a little splurge. The cinnamon sugar croissant is so worth it!!
- Make sure to pack extra warm! Jackson is a really windy mountain. There’s a ton of wildlife to see whether you go looking for it or it’s out looking for you! There is so much to do from snowshoeing to heliskiing and everything in between - you can’t get bored!
