Please give me tips on anything to make my Jackson Hole trip great. Staying in Teton Village. I'm a PSIA Level III and by wife is PSIA Level II, fairly descent skiers but always learning. Restaurants, lift tickets, snowmobiling day, best lifts, special things to do and see. Places for me to ski extra hard terrain and my significant other to do the ski around, rejoin. :
I've been a little busy lately so I apologize for the slow reply. I'll post something here in the next few days about some of the tougher skiing. Kind of a follow-up to the one mannsj referenced. Also, I need to look at my schedule, but I'm sure we can get together for some turns during one of those days you're here.
Also in the meantime, here's a little restaurant guide I sent to another Bear recently. By way of disclaimer, I work at the Four Seasons, so keep that in mind with regard to the recommendation on the Westbank Grill. [img]smile.gif[/img]
Restaurants in the Village:
Westbank Grill in the Four Seasons is getting rave reviews (of course, I'm not very objective on this one).
The Cascade in the Teton Mountain Lodge has very good food and nice, intimate atmosphere.
Mara Sushi in the Inn at Jackson Hole is great if you like sushi.
Alpenrose at the Alpenhof has an excellent "tastings" dinner. Planned menu, quite expensive, but people gush about it.
The Mangy Moose has been a Teton Village tradition for as long as there's been a Teton Village.
Gamefish restaurant at the Snake River Lodge is also very good according to reports.
On the way to town, the Vista Grande is still there and still offers very good Mexican.
In town, my favorite nice restaurant is The Blue Lion. Continental cuisine, very nice atmosphere, wonderful place for a couple. If you go, ask if Ned Brown is in. Ned is the owner and tell him I recommended you.
Rendezvous Bistro in town is a fun spot with a great bar and excellent food (holds a lot more people and more bustling than the Blue Lion).
Old Yellowstone Garage has excellent Italian and pizzas. Moderate prices.
The Snake River Brew Pub has award-winning beers and many good menu choices at moderate prices. If you go there, ask for Al or Johnnie Upsher. They own it and know me.
Last but definitely not least, if you have a car and want to go see Grand Teton National Park, you simply must go visit Dornan's in Moose (which is the entrance to Teton Park). Dornan's has an unbelievable view of the Tetons (if the sun is out) and a fantastic wine store as well as a bar and restaurant.
That ought to be enough.
