I love chocolcate. No, I mean I really love chocolate, and embrace any excuse to give or receive it. It’s not just part of the reason – it IS the reason why Valentine’s Day is my most favorite day of the year. I can’t believe it’s merely a lover’s holiday and not a national holiday. I not only expect that a giant Whitman Sampler will be mine come February 14th, but I also reciprocate, giving a big box of gooey filled delights to my significant other. After all, he’ll share right?!
Bon-bons just won’t cut it for those romantics who have loftier goals on how to truly put the exclamation point on this special day set aside for lovers (or chocoholics!) So, I have a much sweeter idea for all the visionaries out there who truly want to WOW your lover come February. How does a “sweetheart package in Teton Valley” sound? Anyone who has been to this gorgeous valley beneath the Tetons knows that it’s undoubtedly one of the most spectacular places on earth. Lots of folks recognize Teton Valley, Idaho as more of a summer destination – the scenic gateway to Jackson Hole, Yellowstone & Teton National Parks. Outdoor enthusiasts also know that Teton Valley is hands down the recreation capital of the western hemisphere. For my money, winter is even more special and romantic, in so many wondrous ways.
For couples that relish slicing thru deep pow together, the ultimate bonding experience has to be a heli ski trip in the Tetons (talk about getting your heart beating and that’s what love is all about right?!). With over 300” of snow in the region thus far, you can only imagine what a day you would have and, drifting through pillow soft snow is only the beginning of this adventure.
After a day of ripping the pow, I recommend the romantic sleigh ride under the star-studded sky followed by a gourmet dinner at the neighboring Linn Ranch. Back at Teton Springs Resort enjoy a quiet glide across their Nordic tract or a snowshoe excursion off the beaten path. Take your camera; wildlife viewing is part of the tour.
By the end of this day you’ve earned an evening hot tub watching a brilliant sun set in the western sky. Your next stop is the Headwaters Grille. Sip a vintage merlot by the crackling fire while you savor something delectable from Chef’s John special valentine menu on February 11, 12 & 14. Grille. If you can tolerate an additional assault to your senses, try the extraordinary hydraquench body treatment at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon.
And, did I mention carving your own signature turns on the freshly groomed snow at Grand Targhee Resort? Are your pleasure sensors overloaded yet? They will be. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa is the place to make all of that happen for you and your sweet pea this winter. Make it a surprise. Book a luxury suite; it’s almost as affordable as chocolate. Or, consider this special Valentine Package. I think you’ll discover two nights isn’t enough but it’s a start.
