The Last & Best Horrah Before the Snow Flies

I love this time of year. The trees are giving us a hearty hint each day that winter is not too far off as the entire Teton Valley pops with glorious shades of red, orange & gold. It’s a sight to behold. And, as much as I relish shorts & t-shirt weather, there is something so comforting in wrapping a well-worn fleece around my shoulders. Baseball caps are replaced with wool beanies, at least for the morning hours, and off we go for another Yellowstone-Teton adventure.

It’s another 6 weeks or so before we dust off the ski boots, wax the boards and watch the weather obsessively for news of that first worthwhile snow storm. We know the skies will open up soon; it’s something we can always bank on here in the Tetons. However, for some reason, the timeliness of the first significant winter dump always causes some angst. Our entire focus and reason for being turns to Grand Targhee & Jackson Hole turning on their lifts, and, for all of us it marks the celebration of another delightful winter season & sliding on snow in an infinite number of ways.

Pamper Yourself at Stillwaters Spa

There’s no better way to prepare ourselves mentally & physically for another snow-filled 6 months than spending the last days and weeks of fall’s cool, crisp days pursuing a different kind of fun, all on dry land. My best recommendation is a visit to the gorgeous and relaxing Teton Springs Lodge & Spa. Maybe it’s simply a night’s retrieve although a weekend getaway is really what the doctor should order. You’ll need a few days to experience the soothing effects of this resort community so plan on spending some time here and let the pampering begin!

So Many Outdoor Activities to Enjoy

The Caribou-Targhee National Forest is practically right outside your door at this luxury resort. Strap on your hiking shoes and a few quick strides later you’ll be sharing the trail with resident elk and deer as you conquer the summit of the many trails at your disposal. And for those that think power walking is too pedestrian, think again.

A brisk walk around the Teton Springs Community is both an efficient way to work out, burn calories, all while taking in the breathtaking scenery. I’ve followed this path while on my own girlfriends’ weekend here recently and before we knew it, we had circled the entire 780 acre resort perimeter, and, we were actually ready for more. It’s funny how everything always seems easier with friends in tow. Check out all our outdoor activities at Teton Springs!

Looking to Stay at a Beautiful, Relaxing, Deluxe Cabin?

My friends and I stayed in one of the super deluxe luxury mountain log cabins at Teton Springs. I use the term "cabin" lightly and you’ll see why on your next visit here. Talk about living it up in the lap of luxury, and our per person rate was ridiculously affordable.

My girlfriends were a lot more excited about the kitchen in our cabin than the staggering views or huge big screen T.V.s. To each their own, but I have to admit, you could almost envision Rachael Ray or Wolfgang Puck standing at this granite topped island happily chopping away.

Beautiful, Top of the Line, Bedroom Suites

If it’s cozy & romantic you’re after and you plan a visit to Teton Springs with a spouse or significant other, the accommodation of choice is the one bedroom suite in the lodge. Expect well equipped & roomy, sporting almost 800 square feet, large balconies and beautifully tiled baths complete with whirlpools no less.

The beds are big and comfy, perfect for an afternoon nap. After a relaxing dinner at the Headwaters Grille, crank up the gas fireplace in your living room and maybe, just maybe, you’ll finish that book.

5000 Square Foot Spa – Get Ready to Relax

Teton Springs Resort separates itself from the pack in many ways but the crowning jewel of this property has to be the Stillwaters Spa & Salon. Located on the first floor of the Lodge, the 5,000 square foot spa not just offers a full array of services and treatments, but the staff literally makes you feel like royalty. It’s a crew that is familiar, highly skilled, professional and yet lighthearted. They specialize in a variety of massages including deep tissue, Swedish, hot stone, reflexology and pre-natal. However, I am biased in favor of the Hydraquench treatment. After this indulgence, you will never feel as silky smooth again, in your life. The Stillwaters Salon is also the most popular place in Teton Valley to get those locks cut so be sure to book in advance!

The Beautiful Teton Valley

Not sure why anyone would want to leave the confines of Teton Springs, but if you’re compelled, there are plenty of fun diversions in Teton Valley. The local museum is a great way to spend a few hours after cruising the Driggs Main Street shops & watering holes. The Victor Emporium is smart enough to offer their famous huckleberry shakes year-round and you’re sure to find something special to take home combing through their racks of treasures.

If that’s not enough to satisfy the spending bug, Jackson Hole, the Mecca of shopping districts, is only a 25 minute drive away. You can virtually complete your Christmas shopping list and that’s without ever leaving their Town Square. It’s Monty Hall and "Let’s Make A Deal" this time of year so bring the platinum card!

Back at Teton Springs while soaking in the hot tub and gazing at the starlit sky, you can dream of your winter visit of snow-filled days and the next set of adventures.
