Gobble Gobble Shuss Shuss Turkey & Skiing are Right Around the Corner

Awesome Skiing and Heli Skiing Packages

Ah, why do I love Teton Valley, let me count the ways. We’ve just turned the corner into November and we’re still playing golf and fishing for Cutthroat. Crazy. This is after skiing Teton Pass, just days ago, when the skies opened up and a healthy dose of high altitude fluff graced our local hills. It’s hard not to be weather crazed when you live in the mountains. After all, so much of our daily life revolves around being & doing in the great outdoors, and when we can’t be outside, we’re obsessing about being outside.

Weather also dominates the news on a regular basis. Having spent my entire formative years at the Jersey shore, my heart breaks with the never ending imagery flashing across my T.V. screen of the unconscionable wrath and rage of Hurricane Sandy. These seaside communities comprise some of the country’s most treasured & breathtakingly beautiful places. It’s truly stomach wrenching watching chunks of your summer vacation memories literally floating in the Atlantic.

We too can have weather challenges living in the Tetons but fortunately not the kind where the National Guard has to be called in. Sometimes we have to deal with too much snow at one time (hehe). But winter storms, even the epic ones, barely slow progress in Teton Valley. Snow, and lots of it, is the fabric of life here and history tells us that once the faucet turns on we’re golden until spring. Music to a skier’s ear for sure.

Come Stay at Teton Springs and Experience the Best Snow on Earth!

Everyone’s gearing up for the inevitable; neighbors are hauling wood, putting visqueen on windows, switching to winter treads, and basically buttoning down the hatches. The local Idaho resorts, as well as Wyoming’s Grand Targhee and the Jackson Hole Ski area, are gearing up for what promises to be another terrific season.

Thanksgiving Time – The Turkey Chase Here

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and for many that means more than just turkey, pumpkin pies and football. For excited snow sliders it’s a car stuffed with buddies and gear, or a family ski vacation that’s officially kicking off the winter season. Yes, vertical descents are on the horizon.

But not so fast. We have an important dry land pursuit to take care of before hitting the slopes. Strap on the sneaks; it’s time to raise some money for two terrific non profits in Teton Valley at the annual Turkey Chase 1 mile, 5k and 10k Run (or walk), at Teton Springs Resort. Racers will line up outside the Headwaters Grille on Saturday morning November 17. Mark your calendar!

Fall & Winter – The Best Place to Stay and Relax is Teton Springs

Teton Springs Lodge & Spa is an optimum spot to kick off winter family vacations. The one & two bedroom suites are warm, cozy, roomy, deluxe and… drum roll please, so affordable.

It also appears holiday season brings out the generous spirit in the folks at Teton Springs because when you book two nights at Thanksgiving they throw in the third night FREE. Now that’s something to be truly thankful for! Check out all our Fall vacation packages!

Yes, there are a lot of reasons to count our blessings, not just at Thanksgiving but every day – family, friends, good health, and not to mention, money saving ski and stay packages and endless turns in knee deep powder.

Family Winter Vacation Ideas

Family winter vacation ideas abound in eastern Idaho and western Wyoming. When searching the guide books, most would-be potential visitors ponder heading to this region with one goal in mind, and that’s to visit Yellowstone. There’s no doubt that Yellowstone is the country’s most revered national park. It’s also worth noting that it’s not just our nation’s very first national park, but the world’s first designated national park as well. It encompasses 2.2 million acres and boasts more geysers than anywhere on the planet. It’s an extraordinary place, as is Grand Teton National Park and both are within an easy drive from Teton Springs Resort.
