Wild West Days in Jackson Hole

Looking for premier Jackson Hole summer activities to officially kick off your summer fun? Well, slipping into Jackson Hole, Wyoming over Memorial Day is a long held tradition in these parts! If you’re in the mood for a genuine taste of the old west and the terrific activities that go with it, you’ll head in this direction too. Old West Days, slated for May 28 -31, promise and deliver on three full, action-packed days of family friendly entertainment, food and foot stompin’ western music.  There are Teton Springs Lodge & Spa guests who wouldn’t think of missing the celebrations that this novel summer activity Jackson Hole Chamber provides.
Wild West Days in Jackson HoleFrom Teton Springs, it’s an easy traverse over Teton Pass into Jackson and the Jackson Hole summer activities begin right after coffee on Friday with the Mountain Man Rendezvous & Traders Row. Whatever you do, don’t miss the bow & arrow and knife throwing competitions (front row seats maybe not the best option here!) and check out the vendors hawking “everything antler” for that one-of-a-kind bar stool or chandelier. Jackson Hole Rotary is putting on a world-class wine tasting event but first check out Jackson’s signature Shootout on the Town Square. The kids will love it! Pace yourself, there’s still three more days to go: music on the square, arts & crafts, cowboy poetry, clogging, pickin’ & fiddlin’ and one of the best parades & rodeos in the west. Check it out so you don’t miss a thing at the Wild West Days in Jackson.

You’ll head back to Teton Springs each night weary but with a smile on your face. Maybe it’s time for that hot tub and deep-tissue massage at the Stillwaters Spa; Jackson Hole summer activities are blissfully exhausting!

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.

Teton Springs Resort Salutes Local Hero Lisa Smith-Batchen

I get tired just thinking about running 5 miles and then Lisa Smith-Batchen comes into my mind, and suddenly, I’m ashamed of myself. If you’re not familiar with Lisa “super woman” Smith-Batchen you soon will be. Lisa has long been a local hero to those of us who work, play, walk and run with her in Teton Valley, Idaho. Teton Springs Resort has a proud history with Lisa and recently hosted her “80 For Haiti” event where Lisa and friends walked/ran 80 miles to benefit children of Haiti. Lisa now has millions of new admirerers thanks to a recent interview on CNN News, a short run with Robin Roberts from Good Morning America and countless other east coast news outlets. Lisa is known internationally as a top endurance athlete and is the only American woman who has snagged the top prize at the “Marathon des Sables,” a 150 mile race thru the Sahara Desert. Tired yet?

Why all the hoop-la. Lisa’s latest & craziest scheme is to raise awareness, but more importantly, money, to help millions of orphans in the U.S. and around the world by running 50 miles in 50 states. What’s the big deal you say? We’re not talking a leisure 2,500 mile run that’s a summer project; Lisa will attempt to complete this marathon upon marathon upon marathon in a mere two months. Through her non-profit Dreamchaser Foundation, Lisa, accompanied by a meager but dedicated support crew, hopes to raise $1,000,000 with this “Running Hope Through America” event. All donations will benefit event partners; AIDS Orphans Rising, the Caring House Project and the Orphan Foundation of America.

You don’t have to be a world-class athlete to participate in this history-making event. Runners & walkers of all abilities are encouraged to join Lisa in their state as she crosses America Join us on Saturday, June 19th for a flat & scenic trek around Teton Springs Resort as Lisa makes her emotional way to the finish line at the historic Spud Drive-In Theater in beautiful Teton Valley, her home and ours. A special thanks to the Teton Springs Foundation for their recent $5,000 donation to support Lisa’s Running Hope Through America! I suddenly think I can easily muster 5 miles & open my wallet for orphans everywhere. Will you?
