Corbett’s Couloir might be the resort’s most famous run, but the fresh waffles topped with everything from Nutella to strawberries served up at Corbett’s Cabin are worthy of some serious contemplation too. Have one before heading over to Corbett’s. The mandatory air to get into the famous couloir is less intimidating on a full stomach.
The Snake River Lodge & Spa doesn’t have the best spa in Teton Village, but it does allow spa day guests to use its pool and outdoor hot tub, which might be the Village’s best. The Four Seasons pool is awesome as well, but the only way you can use it is if you’re an overnight guest at the property.
JHMR’s Mountain Sports School is awesome. There are lessons for all ages and levels. Adults signing up for group lessons at intermediate levels and higher often end up with a semi-private lesson.
Under the Mangy Moose, the Rocky Mountain Oyster Café serves 1/4-pound grass fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free beef burgers starting at $4.50. A buffalo burger is $6.50.
Don’t be afraid to take a day off. Grand Teton National Park is literally right next to JHMR. Yellowstone National Park is an hour away and numerous outfitters in Jackson offer day-long snowmobile trips to Old Faithful, which is a much nicer place to visit in winter than summer when thousands of people can be gawking at the geyser. In winter, there might be several dozen.
There are few resorts in the country that can compete with JHMR. Twelve miles away, Snow King Resort is smart enough not to try. Jackson’s “town hill,” Snow King is still a local’s favorite. It offers two-hour lift tickets, night skiing, 1,500-feet of vertical, a tubing park, and, from both mid-mountain and the summit, fantastic views of the Tetons. It is north facing though, so it’s usually pretty chilly.
Back at JHMR, the best views of Corbett’s Couloir – other than those you get standing at its lip – are from the southern deck at Couloir atop the Bridger Gondola.
No reservations are needed for the free, twice-daily (9:30am and 1:00pm) Mountain Tour. You do need to be an intermediate skier. Tour meets in front of Walk Festival Hall.
Get stoked for your Jackson Hole ski vacation with a screening of Swift. Silent. Deep., a documentary about the legendary Jackson Hole Air Force. Called “North America’s most infamous secret ski fraternity,” the Jackson Hole Air Force was instrumental in the evolution of extreme skiing. Starring JHAF founders Benny Wilson and Howie Henderson, Swift. Silent. Deep. also features Warren Miller, Scot Schmidt, and the late, great Doug Coombs.
