Holiday Fun for Everyone to Enjoy

SKIERS, SHOPPERS AND KIDS All HAVE PLENTY TO BE EXCITED ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

Sometimes when we wish for something hard enough, it really does come true. This time it’s a simple request for a snow season like last year. Teton Valley had one of those over-the-top winters in 2010-2011. Grand Targhee reported close to 600"of snow during their operating season, and then mid April arrived. The lifts stopped, as did the resort’s impressive count on daily snow accumulation. When all was said and done, it was guesstimated when Targhee reopened in June that well over 800 inches had indeed fallen at the resort November thru June. So, many ask, why do our local resorts hit the stop button come spring in those magi al years when it’s obvious winter is steadfastly hanging on?

It’s a natural phenomenon really. Spring signals a time when our thoughts naturally turn from snowsports to other outdoor pursuits readily available in this amazing Yellowstone-Teton area. After all, all that snow turns to water and water flows into the rivers and rivers are where the fish live. You get my drift. When we’re not hunting the big browns still dazed from their long winter nap, we dust off the mountain bikes and lace up our running shoes. There are plenty of cool trails on the valley floor when the grass finally decides to break free and the days are longer, and the brilliant sun once again warms our soul. We have many fun and affordable Winter Package Deals for the family!

Oh, but I do digress. It’s only November and we already have lots to look forward to this holiday season. Storms continue to roll directly over the Tetons dropping impressive quantities of white gold, and that means turning the boards downhill and not the kind of turns that one potentially has to work for this time of year. The lifts will go round and round at both Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole (November 25 & 26 respectively) proving that the local prediction for a glorious repeat of La Nina is true. It appears she is indeed back, with vengeance, and winter aficionados are once again dancing in the streets.

New Year Adventures

THE NEW YEAR IS ONE FILLED WITH HIGH ALTITUDE ADVENTURES IN THE GRANDEST OF THE NORTHERN ROCKY MOUNTAINS!

The United States Census figures were just released and it seems that our nation has experienced the slowest growth since the Great Depression. Lots of reasons for this I imagine, some obvious, some not. However, I wasn’t surprised to see that Idaho was one of only three states in the country that experienced more than 20% growth during the past decade. Wyoming, our great neighbor to the east, also posted a healthy growth of 10 to 20%. Can’t say I’m surprised. Who in their right mind wouldn’t want to live, and more importantly play, in this glorious Yellowstone-Teton region? Guess the secret is out.

Anyone who is a snow report junkie, like yours truly, knows that the Teton Mountains have been blessed this winter. No, that’s not all that unusual. This area usually tops the charts when it comes to total annual accumulation. We’re use to getting our hopes up that Thanksgiving will serve up delicious turns from summit to base in addition to that traditional turkey and pumpkin pie dinner. Getting the cob-webs out of our ski boots in November just means more precious time to savor the adventures that come in all flavors in our high elevation-cured powder. Now, is it any wonder that Idaho and Wyoming both experienced double digit growth in this year’s census?! Seems folks visit our area for that customized outdoor adventure and their next cell call is to the moving company.

Grand Targhee Resort opened their lifts early this year and just keeps cooking. At last glance their snow stake topped 220 inches thus far for the season. Somehow I don’t think hitting their annual 500 inches will be a problem. But now is bonus time for other reasons. Now that the holiday rush is over, visitors can really savor the quiet time, and on any given week day have the slopes virtually to themselves. You can literally get a feel what it means to be a “local” this time of year and save money to boot. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa offers a killer one night package with lodging in one of their deluxe hotel rooms, breakfast in the charming Headwaters Grille, and a lift ticket to this powder wonder for only $135 per person per night. On this package you can string as many nights together as you like and this offer is even valid during Martin Luther King and President’s holiday weekends. Why would you go anywhere else!

Hard to believe but there are other compelling reasons to stay at Teton Springs during the throes of winter season. Here’s one to note. Teton Valley Adventures will pick you up at the lodge and within minutes you’ll find yourself snowmobiling in some of Idaho’s most pristine and spectacular backcountry. Not a sled head – not to worry. There’s plenty of terrain well suited for the neophyte and that includes kids too. Their guides were born and raised in Teton Valley and know every inch of the luscious mountain terrain that awaits you. Talk about a Rocky Mountain high! A day trip to Yellowstone National Park is also on their agenda. There’s really no adequate way to describe how magnificent it is seeing the nation’s first national park when it’s under a blanket of white

For a more mellow day at Teton Springs Resort, strap on the cross country skis for an exhilarating spin around the groomed tract followed by a steam bath at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon. You’ll need some down time; tomorrow promises new discoveries. I can’t wait to see what the census brings next time around for Idaho & Wyoming! Will you be counted as one of our own?
