Cool Temps and Hot, Sizzling Fun in the Tetons


The news is filled these days with horror stories of the record heat index and soaring temps all across the nation. Many of you are probably wondering, what exactly is a "heat index" anyway. Well, join the club. It appears it’s a combination of the actual temperature outside but not before you factor in the relative humidity. Simply put, the heat index is how hot we humans actually perceive it to be based on how lousy our bodies feel. I can tell you, most people in this country of late are certainly are not feeling the love when it comes to the heat index! Newscasters have literally been warning people to stay indoors for weeks now. Foul air in some of the bigger cities, coupled with these soaring temps, has created the perfect storm for a dismal July and most likely August. In these conditions, guess it’s better to watch daytime TV with the air conditioner at full throttle.

It Doesn’t Get Any Better for a Get-a-way or Family Vacation at Teton Springs

Except in the Northern Rockies! Gosh, in so many ways, it truly does come down to location, location, location. Here in Teton Valley, Idaho, we’ve been enjoying mid-70′s to the low 80′s range of temps for the past month and more of the same predicted for the foreseeable future. I truly emphasize with the suffering of so many of our fellow Americans. One could almost feel guilty about living here in this Yellowstone-Teton region as we enjoy such pristine and picture-perfect days (all spent outside by the way). The setting of the western sun is delayed and we’re able to recreate well into the evening. When darkness finally does fall, we climb into our beds (or sleeping bags) and pull the down comforter up around our shoulders as we bid farewell to another perfect summer day.

However, you don’t have to live here to enjoy this land filled with monster rainbow trout, cowboys and sage brush, magnificent waterfalls, whitewater rafting, hot-air ballooning, extraordinary wildlife, world-class golf, mountains that soar to 14,000 feet and national parks. Oh, and did I mention, you only have to stay at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa for two nights (you’ll want more I promise!) before this resort foots the bill for a 7-day Yellowstone & Teton National Park Pass?! This is Teton Springs most popular summer vacation package and definitely the most affordable way to enjoy all the goodies of Teton Springs and visit both of these spectacular parks.

Yellowstone and Teton National Parks are a Hop Skip and Jump Away

The parks are close so day trips are easy. You couldn’t write a script for a better summer vacation than the one that awaits you at Teton Springs Resort. Check out all the details, and be sure to include the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone on this tour. With the record snowfall this past winter in Montana, Idaho & Wyoming, the canyon waterfalls are more dramatic than ever. Wildlife viewing at Yellowstone has been at its best and chances are good that you’ll see your first grizzly bear and wolf. The fastest route to the parks is thru Jackson Hole and into the parks, but for my money, there’s another way, one that allows you to truly experience this entire region. Take some extra time and discover a region rich in American history by taking the "#1 Rated Top Scenic Drive in America." Need I say more?!

Fishing, Hiking, Biking, and Much More all at Teton Springs

While taking a break from sight-seeing in our nation’s first national park, there’s plenty to do at Teton Springs or in the neighborhood. Enjoy a swim, hike, bike, round of golf or a serious day of pampering at the Stillwaters Spa. There is something for everyone to enjoy at Teton Springs, we have some of the best outdoor adventurous activities in the area!

The private lakes and ponds on property have been seeing lots of action and the fish are rising! It’s terrific practice for the fly fisherman whose casting may be a tad rusty or for the kids itching to learn. When you’re ready to hit the area’s big rivers, talk to our friends in Guest Service at the Lodge. They’ll set you up with the experts at WorldCast Anglers where its’ practically guaranteed you’ll take home bragging rights and you’ll have a blast fishing in the Teton and Snake River!

Escape the heat this summer at Teton Springs. See you in paradise!
