post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi I hope you can help

I am coming over to JH in six weeks and one day and I was supposed to be coming over with a friend anyway she cancelled her flight and thats a whole different conversation over on snowheads.com !

Anyway the lovely snowheads people have advised I should come over here and you may be able to help I will be in Jackson for 17 days in February I arrive on the 4th so this includes presidents weekend and now as I have to foot the bill for my accomodation all alone I was thinking of the super 8 as this is available for $99 including ski pass is this a good deal ?

I am planning on doing the steep and deep camp at Jackson in the first week I am there and am not sure what else I should plan to do while out there a trip to yellowstone I really fancy but what else should I plan in

Just for the stats I am english 34 very fit and sexy too apparently and female !

So your advice please x

I stayed at the Super 8. Its clean and fairly new. It is in the sprawl part of Jackson with stores and other motels near by. If you are thinking of bar hopping it is a couple miles out of the way so you would need to drive to the downtown area.

Bob Peters is the go to guy for Jackson information, if he doesn't chime in here try sending him a PM.
HostelX is pretty spartan.

Thanks BillA, I can handle Spartan - last year I stayed in a YH in Banff sharing a room this wasnt exactly what I had planned for jackson though was supposed to be coming with a friend and staying in a decentish hotel but her *priorities* changed !!!!!!

So its just whether its best to stay on the mountain or in the town as I am going to be alone for the 18 days !!!

Helen Is

I'll be there for the Seep & Deep camp too. I'm staying at Hostel-X. I think they recommend staying in Teton Village because the camps start early in the a.m. and it can be a pain to drive the extra miles from Jackson.

Maybe stay in the Village for the first week or so, and then in town for the second week.

Humm, let me see if I remember the math. Single + Female + Ski town + enough time to meet folks = good times & not alone by end of trip!



Have fun. Jackson is a great mtn.

49-er & Antler are Cheap

Hi Helen,
You will have fun no doubt.

Two other cheap places are (also walking distance to stores/bars/etc.) are the 49-er and the Antler (s) motel. the bus system in Jackson was great the last time I was there, so you really don't need a car unless you party at the mangy moose (Teton Village) too late. then you call "taxi tim."

For good pasta (carbo loadking) try the snake River brewery where you can get Zonker Stout... After the Alta chutes, you'll need it ;-)

Enjoy,
TS

Antler is centrally located, ski bus picks-up in its parking lot, has a
very large hot-tub.

I'm staying at the 49-er in Jackson this week. It's my first stay at this particular Jackson property and I think that it is a great value (at $82/night AAA rate) for this area during the High Season for ski holidays.

OK, it's not the Four Seasons or the Snake River Lodge and Spa. But it's comfortable, clean, free WiFi, and within walking distance of all the action around the Town Square. Haven't tried, yet, the free breakfasts at the 49'er---too many excellent breakfast spots within a few blocks.

Had a blast at Grand Targhee today. Reminds me a lot of the non-pretentious vibe at Mt Baker (Washington). Definitely more skiers than riders at GT, however. It wasn't a deep powder day at Grand Targhee...but conditions were excellent for December, and the runs were uncrowded (it seemed to me) for their busiest week of the year.
