We’ve skied Aspen, Vail, Banff & Lake Louise, Mammoth, and Park City, but we had never had the opportunity to ski Jackson Hole until the winter of 2020. It all started on a fall day when we were talking to our good friends about their favorite ski spots. Our friends gasped in surprise when we shared that we had never been to Jackson Hole. They continued, “then you’ve never skied the best mountain in the U.S.” To which we of course replied, “well, it looks like we’ll need to change that!” Right then and there, we booked our trip to the mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming for February of 2020.

Jackson Hole is a quaint mountain town that’s surrounded by the Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges. You can choose to dabble in Jackson Hole’s posh portions or saddle up and enjoy its honky-tonk vibes in the great Wild Wild West. While we fell in love with its incredible mountains that were made for snowboarding and skiing, we stayed for the plethora of epic things to do in Jackson Hole Wyoming.


Where to Stay

Four Seasons Jackson Hole: Located in posh Teton Village, the Four Seasons Jackson Hole is the perfect jumping off point for snow bunnies. Located at the base of the mountain, The Four Seasons Jackson Hole has beautiful accommodations, a stunning spa, and plenty of outdoor activities.

Amangani: You can never go wrong with an Aman Resort. If you can afford the $1500+ a night price tag, Amangani is the place to stay in Jackson Hole.

Hotel Jackson: The Hotel Jackson is a luxury boutique hotel located in the town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which is ~20 minutes from the ski mountains. If you’re looking for more action including shopping, bars, and restaurants, the Hotel Jackson is your best bet for luxury accommodations in Jackson Hole.

Where to Eat

  • Persephone Bakery: This place is so good that I had to go back twice. Ok, if we’re being honest here…I went back three times. It was just that good. This French style bakery has delicious pastries, divine coffees, and a plethora of healthy breakfasts, salads, and sandwiches.
  • Snake River Grill: Snake River Grill has been a Jackson Hole staple for over 25 years. With delicious American cuisine, we highly recommend digging into the short ribs, pork shank, or duck breast.
  • Teton Thai: Located in Teton Village close to the Four Seasons Jackson Hole, Teton Thai has the best Thai food in town. But buyer beware – this isn’t your typical low-cost Thai food restaurant. This is fine dining, Thai style, with prices to match.
  • The Kitchen: The Kitchen embodies Jackson Hole at its finest: “refined, yet casual.” With Asian influence, elegant architecture, and delicious dining, The Kitchen is a must for any visit to Jackson Hole.

Where to Drink

Million Dollar Cowboy: While it’s kitschy and touristy, Million Dollar Cowboy is a must when visiting Jackson Hole. Known as “Wyoming’s landmark watering hole,” Million Dollar Cowboy is located smack dab in the middle of downtown Jackson Hole. Saddle up to the bar (I mean, seriously saddle up because the bar stools are saddles!), have your hand at a game of pool, throw back a few hot toddy’s or whiskey cocktails, and have yourself a rearing good time.


The Mangy Moose: If you’re into rowdy dive bars, then look no further than the Mangy Moose. Try your hand at a shotski (taking shots on a ski), indulge in a Bloody Mary, or dare to try the Moose Punch!

Roadhouse Brewery: We always love exploring local breweries when we travel and Roadhouse Brewing was one of the highlights of our trip. The Pub & Eatery serves elevated bar food and the craft brews are absolutely delicious.

Bar Enoteca: If you’re looking to class it up a bit and enjoy some fine wines, head over to Bar Enoteca, a wine bar in Teton Village. There are breathtaking mountain views and an extensive selection of worldly wines.

Handle Bar: The Handle Bar is located at the prestigious Four Seasons Jackson Hole at the base of the mountain. This is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy some delicious food and cocktails after a long day on the mountain.
