Get a Jump Start on Your Summer Adventures

LET THE FUN BEGIN AT TETON SPRINGS RESORT GET A JUMP START ON YOUR SUMMER ADVENTURES!

It’s a simple fact. You have to get an early start on summer adventures in this Yellowstone-Teton area if you want to sample even a slice of what’s out there. Some days it even borders on being a dilemma -what to do and then what to do next. It’s nice to have such problems. Memorial Day Weekend weather can be a mixed bag in the Tetons but this year for the most part we were treated to sunshine and nice spring temps.

A golf round at the Headwaters Club at Teton Springs once again was a glorious experience. The crew on this award-winning course should take a bow. It wasn’t too long ago that winter’s last remnants of snow filled the bunkers. These guys are good; the fairways are already bordering on lush and the greens smooth and true. And, it will only get better. The June issue of Golf Digest says it best, “Teton Springs Resort – near Jackson Hole – is a 27 hole stay-and-play nirvana highlighted by the Headwaters Golf Course in the Teton Valley, an immaculate voyage through the jaw-dropping beauty of the Teton Valley.”

The nice folks at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa must be giddy with spring fever because they just extended their incredible Stay & Play Package that’s always geared towards early, early season. It’s downright silly not to take advantage of their generosity because this deal is easily the best value in the region. The lodge website listing says it is indeed a thing of the past, but if you call Guest Services, they’ll let you slip in until about the 13th of June. They’ll also give you all the details; there’s other goodies on this vacation package menu besides the night in a luxurious lodge room and a round of golf on the world-class Headwaters Course. And, it’s only $105 per person. What’s to even think about?!

Stillwaters Spa Gets It’s Own Makeover!

The Stillwaters Spa & Salon hosted lots of happy clients last Friday. They unveiled their salon makeover to rave reviews. The salon now sports a 3 person pedicure station, 3 stylist chairs and two upgraded hair stations.

This is truly a beautifully appointed spa & salon and provides genuine personalized service, much needed pampering we all deserve, and top-of-the-line beauty & wellness products.

The Headwaters Grille is also pulling out all the stops to insure a fabulous summer season on the resort’s dining and entertainment front. Chef Jordan is flying in fresh seafood weekly and not sure how he’s going to top the seared wild Alaskan Halibut served last week – yum! The daily specials during their 5-7 p.m. Happy Hour provide the perfect atmosphere to meet with friends and swap stories about that “almost” subpar round.

And, these guys at the Headwaters Grille are literally giving you a third weekend night so to speak with their “Mulligan Mondays” every week. Now thru the end of September on the Grille patio there’s free music, food and beverage specials, great tunes, and the best seats in the house for taking in the surrounding scenery, great tunes and those glorious western sky sunsets. The Headwaters is now open daily for breakfast, lunch & dinner.

With the warm temps of late, the spring run-off is in full throttle. The Henry’s Fork is bursting with salmon flies and fishing reports from this Yellowstone-Teton area can literally make any fly fisherman salivate. The Fly fishing guides are ready to take you down the Snake River and catch a few lunkers! Soon there will be choices galore as we can look forward to conditions getting red hot on all of our local rivers any day now.

 

 

And golf isn’t the only sport at Teton Springs getting rave national reviews! Teton Springs was just mentioned in an article about Fly-Fishing in Teton Valley in the May issue of Bon Appétit Magazine. Outside Magazine also chimed in recently with a piece on our very own and glorious Idaho side of the Tetons.

Call now to book your Stay & Play Package, take a dip in the heated 25 meter pool, cast a line on the private ponds, eat like a king and be treated like royalty in the Stillwaters Spa & Salon. Sounds like a dream getaway to me!

Everything in the Tetons Simply Feels and Looks Better in September

We grudgingly give up our summers here in the Tetons where the days are endless and inevitably turn into star filled crisp evenings. This is a place where air conditioning simply means cranking open your window a tad wider. Basically, the summer weather is glorious, just about all the time, and even the news worthy natural disasters are dreadful occurrences that only seem to happen somewhere else. It’s easy to understand why so many people call this Yellowstone-Teton area their favorite summer destination. After Labor Day, things tend to quiet down, families have wandered home and the optimum September weather and wide-open & uncluttered roads lure those fortunate enough to embrace the adventures that beckon. I spoke of one such journey in the past but it’s definitely worth another look.

Yellowstone Park  – The Nation’s Finest

Swimming, Golfing, Eating and Much more at Teton SpringsYellowstone National Park is especially enchanting this time of year. The sun glistens on the mountain peaks and it’s prime wildlife viewing season. Wolves are busy teaching their young to hunt while the bears fill their bellies in anticipation of their upcoming hibernation. The elk are in rut and if you’ve never heard an elk bugle, well, it’s a sound truly found only in nature. It’s eerie and surreal and something you won’t soon forget. There are a few ways to reach our first national park from Teton Valley but I’m going to recommend you take your time getting there and enjoy the sights and sounds along the way. After all, isn’t that the reason for visiting this land of towering mountains, wild and scenic rivers, rolling sand dunes and fertile open space that seemingly stretches into forever. This is the "off-season," right, so stop, look and listen along the way. You may be amazed at what you’ll find.

The Yellowstone-Grand Teton Loop Road is one of America’s most spectacular scenic driving experiences and it’s a worthy journey.

Staying at Teton Springs Resort – Fun for Everyone

INCREDIBLE Golf Package... check it out!You’ll begin your road trip in Victor, with a delightful stay at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa where the pool is heated, the golf magnificent, the food scrumptious and the fish hungry in one of this resort’s many private lakes and ponds.

And the Spa, well; you may just want to consider hanging around for a few days at this property before rushing off anywhere.

I personally recommend the hydraquench body wrap, a signature treatment at the resort’s Stillwaters Spa & Salon. You’ll leave Teton Springs feeling relaxed and rejuvenated and more than ready to begin your journey into wild and scenic Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

Beautiful Golf Course at Teton Spring Resort

The Grand Teton Loop Tour takes you north through Teton Valley, an area famous for its potatoes, but also its rich history of explorers, trappers, fur traders, mountain men and Mormon pioneers. Modern day "explorers" take delight in the incredible recreation afforded them here, in just about any season. As you head into Ashton, Idaho, take a break at the Trails Inn for some of Idaho’s best open-faced chicken fried steak. Upper and Lower Mesa Falls, next on the agenda, are two of the last undisturbed waterfalls of consequence in the West and both are easily accessed from the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway.

Fishing, Sightseeing, Bears and Wolves

Yellowstone Park Adventure and FunHope you have your fly rods packed and ready to cast, the famous Henry’s Fork of the Snake River is just steps away and September fishing is on fire!

The town of West Yellowstone is a major gateway into Yellowstone and deserves a look. It’s home to a cool museum, unique and funky shops and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery center. Give yourself plenty of time in Yellowstone National Park with its 2 million acres to explore, 300 geysers and 10,000 geothermal features. Hope you packed your hiking boots!

It’s a seamless journey from Yellowstone into Teton National Park and the sage filled landscape of this national treasure is a startling contract to the jagged peaks of the Teton Mountain Range. Over fifty miles of Snake River winds through the park and hiking and walking trails are plentiful and all afford staggering views of the Teton Mountains. Dotted with numerous sparkling lakes and incredible wildlife viewing, this could easily be your favorite stop and for that extra "wow factor," stop at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor center.

Jackson Has Something for Everyone

The town of Jackson, Wyoming, is an optimum place to end your official driving tour. This gateway-to-the-parks iconic western town certainly sees its share of summer visitors but gives post Labor Day stragglers all the room they need. There’s a staggering array of shops (more than just cowboy hats & boots!), great dining and entertainment, world-class museums and art galleries and a dizzying array of outdoor activities. And, if you happen to be in town during the 27th Annual Fall Arts Festival September 8-18, that’s even more reason to extend your stay at Teton Springs. You’ll want more than one taste of this internationally acclaimed event and it’s only a 25 mile commute to Jackson from your accommodations at the Lodge at Teton Springs Resort.

You’ll be pleasantly exhausted after your Grand Teton Loop Tour. The nice folks at Teton Springs will tuck you in.
