Christmas – A Time for Joy – Peace and Love

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.

This year, parents will undoubtedly hold their children a tad closer and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. It’s a time for forgiveness, to open our hearts to love and spending precious time with family and friends. It feels like now, more than ever, is the time to pay-it-forward, which could be a simple act of acting nobly in any given situation and selflessly giving to others. Maybe that’s why there seems to be more Toys For Tots bins popping up this year, or maybe I’m just more aware of the many in need. It’s a good thing. Most of us are so blessed and have so much. It’s time to share.

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!
