Tough to Leave Teton Valley for Spring Break When the Lifts Still Turn Round and Round! I took a cruise once many moons ago. It was a family celebration for my dad’s 70th birthday and it was a short jaunt of three nights on the ocean. That was plenty. I had a blast with my dad and siblings but it seemed like waiting for the next extraordinary buffet was the daily highlight. My friends have since tried to entice me over the years to book a longer spring break trip on one of the newer and massive cruise ships. I’ve never taken the bait, for a variety of reasons.
I’m not knocking the cruise vacation per se as most are probably magnificent journeys with exotic warm weather beachy places thrown in. Just not for me. My key concern is the fact that these floating cities seem to break down, a lot, leaving the huddled masses hungry, thirsty and frustrated. Not to mention floating aimlessly at sea sometimes for days on end. Or, maybe you get lucky and you don’t suffer mechanical difficulties, just lower GI ones, from some intestinal super bug that at the speed of sound takes passengers and crew hostage.
Spring Break in the Teton Valley
Springs break at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa is definitely the best option for the winter sports enthusiast dedicated to squeezing in a few more quality days on the snow.
After all, Grand Targhee will accommodate this need for carving perfect turns on pristine and freshly groomed slopes deep into April. And, it’s no coincidence that Teton Springs Lodge & Spa is offering a FREE night when you book two over Spring Break. Why this generous offer when this boutique property is already so popular in all seasons? Well, they know from personal experience that a few days of spring skiing in the Tetons just never prove to be enough, and, the folks at Teton Springs are simply experts at wanting to spoil their guests, check out our Winter stay and play packages. Guess that’s why their visitor ratings on TripAdvisor.com are always so sky high and the lodge was recently voted "The Best Hotel in Idaho" for the second straight year!
Luxurious Mountain Log Homes – Skiing & Lodge Vacation
Their generosity doesn’t limit you to the lodge & suites on this deal, the luxurious mountain log homes are also included in this offer. If this getaway needs to be a quick trip, there’s always the one night lodge & ski combo at the Lodge with a gourmet breakfast basket delivered to your room.
There’s also a myriad of backcountry terrain in this neighborhood if an early morning trek at sunrise with the Tetons in full view is your thing for spring or, a warm afternoon jaunt in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest when the rising temps transform the bowls and glades into a corn snow fest.
Relaxing at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon
There’s no doubt, a spring skiing vacation is so much more civilized. Most days in late March & April, it’s best to sleep in, enjoy a light breakfast and let the staff at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon work their magic with a Deep Tissue Massage and/or a treatment designed to sooth & lubricate dry winter skin. There’s rush in hitting the slopes early this time of year, unless it’s a powder day of course.
Normally as old man winter relaxes his grip, you’ll want to wait until the high altitude snow softens under the Rocky Mountain sun and your boards glide effortlessly over the vast collection of runs on Targhee’s two mountains.
Spring Skiing and Eating Well
Spring skiing also means leaving the down-filled parka behind; this is vest wearing weather with tall cold beverages savored on the deck at cocktail time. You’ll arrive back at Teton Springs in time for the dinner bell (winter hours – Thurs thru Sunday 5:00-9:30).
The Headwaters Grille at Teton Springs Resort is serving up some scrumptious dishes from their new menu and they’ll start you off with Chef Jordan’s amazing crab cakes or classic Calamari. If you’re around at the end of March, the Headwaters Grille is serving their famous Easter Brunch. Make those reservations early; this is easily of one the most beautiful locations in Teton Valley to celebrate Easter Sunday (208.787.8130).
So, grab some friends and head for the hills. Unlike a cruise to the islands, you’ll never get seasick on this spring break adventure!
This holiday season feels different. There has been so much sadness in our country. Rather than focusing on the goodies under the tree bearing our name, I think it’s safe to say most of us will be thinking of the families in America who this year bear heavy hearts and unfathomable loss. I know I will be.
Spending time in the great outdoors is a most effective way to unleash our spiritual energy. The world seems to always make greater sense when we’re standing at the summit on any given peak in the Grand Tetons while taking in all the wonders of this glorious place. It reminds me that there is so much good in our universe. I especially love watching the families reunite during the holidays at Teton Springs Resort. They may be coming for the Christmas ski vacation packages but this special place holds other treasures, like simply being together as a family in an environment that is comforting, nurturing and stimulating.
Many Fun and Exciting Outdoor Activities
For many of us, a day exploring the great outdoors is more than just physical activity. It’s nourishment for the soul, and more importantly, a chance to leave our daily obsessions with technology and anything real world behind. It’s a time for self discovery and reflection, especially while on a hearty trek breathing in pure, clean mountain air. One can almost feel the stress drip from their shoulders like the fallen snow. Teton Springs Resort lies adjacent to the Caribou-Targhee National Forest so easy to quickly transform yourself into another world. A snowshoe or cross-country ski trip through this magical place promises a time of peace and reflection, and nothing will thrill a child more than spending time in the splendor of our precious planet. You may even spot a moose or two sharing your path. There are many outdoor activities while staying at Teton Springs, for everyone to enjoy.
Grand Targhee continues to live up to its impressive reputation for often having the best, and most, snow in North America this season.
The Best Skiing, the Best Snow, The Best Place to Stay – Teton Springs Lodge
Teton Springs specializes in ski packages with this Wyoming gem where powder runs are almost guaranteed and the scenery alone propels you into sensory overload. This small Wyoming area is a mere 30 minute drive from Teton Springs and now Targhee has arranged for someone else to do the driving. So, sit back, relax, and take in the sights from Teton Springs as you cross the state line into a corner of wild, wonderful Wyoming, where Targhee reigns supreme.
And, if you plan on ringing in the New Year at Teton Springs, hang a little later at Targhee that day & take in their annual Torchlight Parade and fireworks display. It’s a terrific way to say goodbye to 2012 and embrace the promises that only a brand new year can deliver. It all happens right after the lifts close so you’ll be back at Teton Springs in time for a New Year’s feast and celebration at the Headwaters Grille (need to check on availability; Headwaters will be hopping!)
Teton Springs specializes in snowboarding vacation packages, which also include options for snowcat skiing at Targhee, or, the once-in-a-lifetime powder experience only a heli ski excursion can deliver. There’s no fighting for powder lines on this trips, there’s plenty to go around!
Happy Holidays from your friends at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa. We look forward to many happy turns with you this season!
Strap on Those Boards and Rejoice – Winter is Finally Here!
This particular resort has a proven track record, and come November, Targhee will typically be the first in the region to offer snow sliding in the Tetons, the true gem of the Rocky Mountains. The Grand Tetons, these truly spectacular and massive slabs of granite, are not just another pretty face. The snow gods winter here, in the shadow of these majestic peaks, and they put out the welcome mat early in the season.
Decades ago, the Friday after thanksgiving was designated as Black Friday, a definite misnomer in these parts. Everyone knows Black Friday marks the official start of the crazy Christmas holiday shopping race and it’s turned the retail world, and their customers, into crazed consumers.
Think about it, who’s silly enough to set the alarm for 2 a.m. (or earlier), just to show up at 4 a.m. (or earlier) to wait in line at Kmart or other box stores simply to have first dibs on the hottest Christmas toy or gadget?
This is another testament to the joy of living in, or visiting, Teton Valley. There’s no super-size stores blocking our spectacular views and the mom and pop retailers here would never dream of opening their doors in the middle of the night. After all, we all need our rest; it’s White Friday at Grand Targhee.
Shopping in the Teton Valley
Yes, shopping is necessary, but let’s keep our priorities straight and shop at home. For both locals and visitors spending the Thanksgiving holidays at Teton Springs Lodge and Spa, there are options galore right here in Teton Valley. If outdoor gear tops the list for Santa, the goods are plentiful. The Victor Emporium in Victor, famous for their huckleberry shakes, also stock their shelves with the latest in sport accessories, fuzzy fur lined shoes and fleece pieces.
Then it’s off to the Mecca of ski and backcountry gear, Driggs, Idaho, where stops must include a look see at Peaked Sports and Yostmark Mountain Equipment. No need to set that alarm, even on Black Friday these guys remain civilized and stores open at 9!
The Teton Valley Winter Holiday Festival
Santa is front and center at the 10th ANNUAL HOLIDAY FESTIVAL & LIGHT PARADE hosted by the City of Victor and Teton Springs Resort Saturday December 1. This event highlights small town living at its absolute best (complete with turkey bowling!). The day is chock full of fun activities throughout Victor, fueled by a hearty pancake breakfast and Holiday Art Show at Teton Springs. Kids can plead their case with Old Saint Nick, complete with a free picture marking the occasion. Mom will enjoy a wide variety of unique treasures created by local artists with nary a super store in site.
Relax at the Spa, Eat Great Food, Enjoy a Fun Skiing Stay and Play Package
The Stillwaters Spa at Teton Springs is unequivocally the nicest spa facility in eastern Idaho and being in the holiday mood, offer incredible specials thru November.
And, who in their right mind wouldn’t find total pleasure receiving a hydraquench, yummy facial or deep tissue massage gift certificate under the tree? Or, the promise of the latest chic haircut by Jill, Julie or Nicole? These are gifts truly worth opening on Christmas Day!
No one does Thanksgiving dinner better than the Headwaters Grille and for those sticking around to ski, the NFL Sundays at the Grille spell pure glee for football fanatics. Stay and ski packages reward snow seekers with a FREE night at the Lodge when you book two over this pilgrim inspired holiday. Now that’s Black Friday at its best.
Tis the season, especially for those memorable winter family vacations in Teton Valley. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
