Engage All Senses at Teton Springs Resort

Eat, drink and be healthy it’s time to engage all senses at Teton Springs Resort!

I was able to wear shorts on my walk yesterday. Go figure. But who’s complaining? The Idaho ski packages being touted as some of the best out there by the state’s tourism office will click in soon enough at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa! Winter weather will arrive this week and a new season begins.

Now is the time to savor the waning days of October and prepare for winter’s onset. It time to gather wood and batten down the hatches; it’s predicted to be a great snow year. We’ve had a good run, no, a great run. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa lodging guests were just treated to an extra week of golfing on the Headwaters Course which is now put to bed. Soon cross country skiers will be gliding on the fairways.

It’s also time to think about what kind of physical shape we’re in so when the snow does fly, we’re ready for the serious snow sliding Teton Valley skiers and snowboarders have easy access to. For some that may mean a ski conditioning class or extra time on the yoga mat. Dry land ski training is also another great way to get in shape for everything winter will throw at us. I’ve watched people cruise around the Teton Springs Resort community with their skis on wheels and I have to wonder how an activity that can whip you into such great shape can look like so much fun. Personally, I would rather get in shape with a series of regular massages at the Stillwaters Spa.

The benefits of massage are obvious. While many consider massage therapy just a glorified way of indulging ourselves in one of life’s greatest pleasures, the benefits of massage on our physical and mental well being are real and well documented. I don’t normally allow myself the luxury of a massage but after nursing a very sore back for weeks, I decided it was time for the exerts to work their magic. I scheduled a therapeutic/deep tissue massage at the Stillwaters Spa.

Now thru the end of November the nice folks at the spa will also extend your massage, like they did mine, from 60 to 90 minutes at no extra cost. I’ve always heard rave reviews about all of the therapists at Stillwaters, but now speaking from personal experience, Angela should be named to the Spa USA All Star Team! This woman’s solid background and years as a massage therapist was evident from the get go. Angela is strong, intuitive and truly listens to her clients; with each passing minute (thank goodness there were 90 of them!), I could feel whatever chronic muscle tension I had build up start to evaporate. Angela also added into the massage a few of the essential therapeutic doTERRA oils Stillwaters now has in their arsenal of personal wellness products. The different smells were truly a “gift of the earth,” which is what the name doTERRA means in Latin. The health benefits of doTERRA have been touted for years. Glad I finally listened.

Now with a fresh spring in my step, it was time to indulge that other very important sense, that of taste. For me that usually means enjoying good food with friends at the Headwaters Grille.

Overlooking the first fairway of the Headwaters golf course, the Grille could very well be the perfect watering hole. It’s got a warm and cozy vibe and Chef Jordan is always serving up something tasty. And, back by popular demand, starting October 31, they’re dishing up a special that will suite everyone’s taste, two for the price of one entree.

The Headwaters Grille has switched to their fall/winter schedule so make sure you plan on a Thursday thru Saturday visit. Sundays they feature the NFL SUNDAY TICKET to satisfy the need for football, all day and all teams. From 11 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. you can watch your favorite squad toss the pigskin in style while enjoying time-honored game day snacks. If it’s Sunday, it’s Headwaters!

So, let’s have November be, if even unofficially, embrace your senses month. Take in the visual beauty of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest from the deck of a luxury mountain log home at Teton Springs, and if you really listen, you’re likely to hear the distinct sound of an elk bugling deep in the woods.

Feel an overwhelming sense of well-being envelop your entire body with a signature massage at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon and absorb the delicious lavender scent with an organic facial treatment. Last but certainly not least, treat your palate with a night out at the Headwaters Grille.

So, start this winter season off right by taking care of you! Call Teton Springs Lodge & Spa at 877.787.8757 for a visit guaranteed to awaken all senses.

March in Teton Valley Idaho

March in Teton Valley, Idaho – In Like a Lion, Out Like a Bigger Lion! Here in Teton Valley we rarely experience a March that fits the saying, “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” Thank goodness. The month of March in this Yellowstone-Teton territory is usually just more of the same as the months preceding it, powder days followed by even bigger powder days. However, this isn’t the norm. Most people in the great U.S. of A. celebrate the end of winter, and view this change of seasons as a time to finally get outdoors again.

There’s no doubt spring is rejuvenating – to feel the warmth of the sun on our face, watch the buds start to appear on trees, and temperatures heading in the right direction to warm winter-weary chilled bones. These same people pray that if March does indeed arrive with a roar that by the end of the month, winter is simply a distant memory.

But here in eastern Idaho, suffice to say there is definitely a genuine disdain for the arrival of spring. It’s generally accepted that in the year 2013, the waning days of winter are over and the start of spring officially begins March 20th. Official or not, die hard skiers and snowboarders in Teton Valley have the confidence in knowing Mother Nature doesn’t recognize, and certainly doesn’t respect, for what should happen with the onset of spring.

So Many Fun Winter Activities in the Teton Valley

Shifting sunlight is normally the criteria for when the beginning of spring is designated. Ah, light, it is the one component that local residents and visitors to Teton Valley alike embrace who cherish all things winter, like skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and backcountry adventures. In the Teton Mountains, spring simply means longer days, and thus, more play time.

Safe to say most Idaho resorts can’t touch the terrific winter vacation packages that Teton Springs Lodge & Spa offers. For example, lodging in their deluxe hotel and snowcat excursions at Grand Targhee.

Thank goodness Targhee had the vision back in the late 1980′s to take a huge chunk of their most pristine mountain terrain and set it aside as a private reserve for skiers and snowboarders hungry for an affordable & quality knee deep powder snow experience. Granted, Targhee had the unique luxury of owning (well, Forest Service Use Permits in this case but that’s practically like owning) two distinct mountains in Wyoming’s iconic Teton Mountains. So, the Wyoming cowboys in charge of this unassuming and totally charming destination resort created the ultimate slice of heaven on Peaked Mountain reserved just for the cats.

They also left plenty of lift served acreage to go around. As the sun is illuminating the Wyoming sky over Targhee’s quant village, anxious skiers and snowboarders board the
snowcats and chug up to the summit of Peaked Mountain. On a clear day, the Tetons are in full view and the
vistas are staggering. That alone is worth the price of admission.

The Place to Stay While Skiing Targhee or the Teton Village

Teton Springs also offers the option of traveling a short distance across Teton Pass for a day of sliding at the Jackson Hole ski area. Or, stay put at Teton Springs; there’s Nordic skiing and snowshoeing right outside your lodge door. Simply put, there’s no other resort destination in the lower 48 that offers the variety of unique ski and stay packages and other year-round adventures than what this charming boutique hotel offers. For that dynamic spring fling and some nice spring getaway packages, the best option going is their stay two nights and the third night is FREE, in any and all resort accommodations.

Welcome to Yellowstone-Teton territory, home to easily the best skiing and snowboarding and family ski vacations in North America. Spring can wait.
