A Jackson Hole Vacation Guide

TETON VALLEY IDAHO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE OFFERS VISITORS MAGNIFICENT HOT AIR BALLOONS COUPLED WITH AN OLD FASHION FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION!

Any legitimate summer Jackson Hole Vacation Guide will steer travelers visiting the area to neighboring Teton Valley, Idaho, for the annual 4th of July Festival. Also known as the “Hot Air Balloon Rally” and the “Teton Valley Summer Festival,” this event, once lauded as one of the Top 10 Events in North America by the National Bus Tour Association, will sure to please the entire family. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, located in the heart of Victor, Idaho, finds itself smack in the middle of all the holiday festivities. Guests of Teton Springs Resort will also discover a complete laundry list of activities & outdoor recreation right outside their lodge or cabin door.

4th of July in Teton Valley

Only 25 minutes from Jackson Hole, vacation guide in hand, you’re ready for the 29th Annual 4th of July celebration but be sure give yourself plenty of time to sample the incredible activities and recreation at Teton Springs. A sampling includes: golf on the award-winning Headwaters Course, pampering treatments at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, tennis, basketball and state-of-the-art fitness center. Fly fishing at dusk on the resort’s stocked ponds is also a terrific way to close out a dynamic day in Teton Valley. If you’re a beginner, we can help with that too with on-site instruction by resort experts. Tired yet?

Agriculture and ranching have historically been the economic engines in this fertile land on the west slope of the Tetons, but tourism is quickly becoming this valley’s bread and butter. An area map and a Jackson Hole Vacation Guide show the breathtaking Grand Tetons looming large, dominating the valley’s scenery. The Teton River, a Blue Ribbon tributary and fly fishing Mecca, is also one of this valley’s natural attributes. Year-round special events also draw visitors to this quaint but dynamic valley but none represent the heritage and character of Teton Valley more than the 4th of July Balloon Festival.

 

Check out the full schedule at Teton Valley Chamber so you don’t miss a thing. If for some reason you can’t take in all four days (sometimes a day of fishing on the nearby South Fork of the Snake River gets in the way!) at least put these on your holiday “must do” list:

  • Hot, hearty breakfast at the Teton County fairgrounds (a bargain at $5.00 – set your alarm for “early!”)
  • Taking in the prep for balloon launch (the atmosphere and sounds are riveting!)
  • Soaring across the quiet Teton sky in a hot air balloon (advance reservations required thru the chamber)
  • The Tetonia Rodeo (this could easily rate #1!)
  • The Victor 4th of July parade (get there early with your lawn chairs – this is a big deal!)
  • Arts & Craft fair in Victor & Antique & Fine Arts Show in Driggs
  • What else but the fireworks!
  • Widespread Panic at the Spud Drive-in on July 4th (o.k., so this isn’t part of the Balloon Rally but talk about ending the holiday weekend with a different kind of fireworks!)

Call the nice folks at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa to book your room for the summer’s premier holiday weekend. Or better yet, ask about one of the signature 3, 4 and 5 bedroom cabins. You’ll dig the cabins at Teton Springs so much we’ll probably see you around through Labor Day! Toll free: 877-787-8757

Indulge this Mother’s Day at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa

I have always loved Mother’s Day. While I don’t have children fawning all over me on this special day honoring mothers, I simply feel that this special day deservedly belongs to all women. I know in my heart that if my Golden Retriever could serve me breakfast in bed she certainly would, assisted by her faithful companion, and my other baby, Bob the cat. I guess the point is; it’s not a stretch for anyone to bask in the glow of Mother’s Day.

The staff at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon at Teton Springs Lodge in Victor, Idaho feels the same way and are experts in the art of pampering. When you walk into this Spa just the aroma itself tells you you’ve entered a place of peace & tranquility. It’s a refuge if you will, from the outside world and all its woes. Located on the ground floor of the Lodge, the 5,000 square-foot Stillwaters Spa & Salon’s goal is providing its guests complete relaxation and rejuvenation. In fact, guests often begin and end their treatment, set within this glorious alpine setting, in the tranquil Relaxation Zen Garden. The spa features a full menu of massage treatment options including deep tissue, sports and injury management, yoga and pregnancy massages. Other treatment favorites include reflexology, aromatherapy, paraffin wax therapy and hot stone treatments.

There are my personal spa favorites. After a long Rocky Mountain winter, where dry skin is a given environmental hazard, how delightful does a “hydraquench body wrap” sound? You have no idea! I’ll give you a hint. It involves a body buff, a thick application of organic whipped Shea butter, you’re then cocooned in a herbal wrap of ingredients designed to sooth muscles and steeped in a tea bath. If you’re still of this world, you’ll delight in the cool stone facial massage and neck massage that follows while your feet rest on warm stones.

Springtime also means exposing our toes and hands to the world once again. The Stillwaters Spa is featuring a special on a Paraffin Treatment for hands and feet – for the whole month of May – only $40 (or as an add-on to any manicure or pedicure for only $10!). Ecofin Wax, blended with organic essential oils and Shea butter, offers unique benefits besides being a superb relaxing therapy: will soften and moisturize skin and is an excellent treatment for stiff and arthritic joints. BRING OUT THE SANDALS!

Stillwaters Spa: 208-787-7250

The Range at Teton Springs Resort is also planning to honor mothers, and all guests, with their special Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday, May 11th, 10:30am – 2:30pm. Call 208-787-3600 ext 20 for information & reservations.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY FROM ALL OF US AT TETON SPRINGS RESORT!
