At the end of March this year I headed to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort with a few co-workers for a quick tour and to catch Jackson Hole’s Mountain Festival featuring G. Love and Special Sauce.
Jackson Hole has a special vibe – it has cowboys, skiing, the actor Harrison Ford running around in his helicopter rescuing people and Yellowstone National Park is within 80 miles. I’ve had friends who’ve biked there from Jackson Hole, but I prefer the traditional driving method. The park is easily within a day trip distance, making the resort a great base camp for exploring other places within driving distance.
Our hosts at Snake River Lodge & Spa, a Rock Resort, were amazing. We were greeted with drinks and appetizers upon arrival. I took some time to wander around and was impressed with the rooms, pool and spa areas. The pool is inviting for both adults and children; it starts inside the spa area and goes outdoors, mountains as the backdrop, and a hot tub with a cave like setting. When I walked through the spa area I could imagine myself getting a relaxing massage then chilling out in the private hot tub or quiet area. However, I was too busy skiing and eating to do much relaxing.
I had never skied at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and my absolute favorite part of the trip was taking the tram up early in the morning and eating waffles at Corbet’s Cabin at the top of Rendezvous Mountain. The smell is amazing and our group ordered multiples of the brown sugar butter, Nutella and strawberry waffles. The brown sugar butter was hands down my favorite and I’m tempted to try and recreate it at home, but my preference might be to head back this summer.
The resort is a great place to visit. I’ll head back again to enjoy the great terrain, amazing food and visit my new friends at Snake River Lodge & Spa.
