It’s finally official for Barack Obama. Our 44th president was sworn in once again as leader of the free world officially on Sunday, January 20th, and for the masses, January 21st was the show. What a relief after what seemed like an eternity of having to sit through endless political commercials & commentary filling the airways and invading our homes on a daily basis. However, the president’s inauguration, despite what side of the fence one sits on politically, stirs emotions in all of us for a variety of reasons. The pageantry of an inauguration is such a rich testament to our American heritage, and throughout the televised celebration, the strength of our nation was evident for everyone in the world to see. The process is comforting in so many aspects.
Now it’s time to celebrate two of our other famous presidents, the nation’s original super heroes, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. These two icons of American history are honored on the third Monday of every February. It’s simply called “Presidents’ Day,” and for most it simply means a welcomed three-day weekend compliments of the federal government. For retailers, this has become a tried & true three-day sale extravaganza, but for winter sports enthusiasts, Presidents ‘ Day has come to symbolize the perfect time to take that mini family ski vacation.
CELEBRATE WITH A FREE NIGHT’S LODGING!
Idaho resorts, especially the resorts specializing in ski and stay packages, like Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, also pays appropriate homage to commemorate these great men of history. What better way than to reward visitors with a FREE night in a lodge room, one or two bedroom decked out suite or even one of their super deluxe cabins?! All you need to qualify for this special version of a “white sale” is book three nights between February 14-28 and the lodge generously throws in the 4th night free. Personally, I love hassle free offers like this, where the deal is genuine, easy to understand, and it’s something I actually need. Check out all our Winter Get-a-way Packages now!
This free night package gives you extra time to check out the great sliding at Grand Targhee Resort and Jackson Hole ski area, or take that snowmobile excursion into Mesa Falls, easily some of the most beautiful scenery in eastern Idaho. Your guide is a local expert so this trip could be a winter highlight.
There are other sweet specials on the horizon at Teton Springs Resort, and I must say, this Victor Idaho property is the perfect place for that romantic getaway, esp. on Valentine’s Day. On this special occasion commemorating true love, give something besides chocolate or flowers this year. Spend a romantic evening in a one-bedroom suite complete with fireplace, king bed, living room and kitchen.
To mark the occasion, the staff will also have a bottle of bubbly (or sparkling cider) chilled and ready for when you arrive. Take a brisk ski on the resort’s track, followed by a hot bath in your private jetted tub – complete with a special blend of bath salts mixed just for this occasion.
ROMANTIC DINNER FOR 2!
Love is in the air at the Headwaters Grille at Teton Springs. This cozy spot overlooking the resort’s first fairway, turned cross-country track, is warm and cozy and perfect for any special occasion, but these guys certainly take it up a notch for Valentine’s Day. How does Grilled Live Maine Lobster Tail sound or Roasted Colorado Rack of Lamb? Warms my heart. Call 208.787.8130 to reserve your table by the fire.
STILLWATERS SPA CATERS TO COUPLES!
Not to be left out of this party, the Stillwaters Spa & Salon offers their own tribute to Cupid. Schedule a 90 minute massage and only pay the 60 minute price in their two person therapy suite complete with fireplace and the best staff in Teton Valley!
