Hotel

From the moment we opened the front door to the townhouse/condo we'd call home for the weekend, we knew we'd enjoy our stay. The slate-tiled entrance hall, with its separate "mud room" and benches, was designed with the skier (or summer hiker) in mind. The nicely appointed master bedroom with a private, full bath is also on this first floor. Go up the stairs to a spacious den with a fireplace, dining room, and large kitchen with silver appliances. Each unit at Moose Creek is privately owned, though managed by Jackson Hole Resort Lodging, so I believe the furnishings vary from unit to unit. However, expect alpine lodge decor, like antique skis hanging on the wall, lamps made of antlers, river r...Read More

Restaurant | "Cascade"

After a long flight from the east coast, we were all starving. Our cab driver suggested Cascade for a nice, yet casual meal. Cascade is a cozy restaurant located in the Teton Mountain Lodge. With pale woods, rock accents, a full-service bar, and fireplace, this proved a cozy place to eat. We were quickly seated in a private corner with a window looking over the glistening snow outside. How was the menu? I started with an amazing corn chowder that perfectly complimented my chicken sandwich and sweet-potato fries. My son happily slurped a chocolate milkshake from the kid's menu, chomped down a cheeseburger, and then ate two slices of buffalo pepperoni pizza! ...Read More

Jackson Hole is a world-class resort known for offering expert terrain. However, the Tetons offer more than cliff-jump entrances, wide bowls, and narrow bump runs. Less advanced skiers can find plenty to do, too!While I have been skiing since I was 7 years old, I live far, far away from the mountains. If I'm lucky, my ski "season" is 3 to 5 days a year. Still, I'm a strong intermediate. I like steep, fast, and groomed blues, though I'll venture into the black diamonds and get down fine... most of the time. Jackson Hole offers a ton of trails that suited my skill level and a lot more that left me feeling sheepishly humbled. The place is so spread out, I think anyone could find ...Read More

Do you need a car in Jackson Hole?

Story/Tip

This is the question I asked everyone I spoke with on the phone as I booked our trip. I don't like driving in snow, and I had never been to Wyoming. I knew the airport wasn't far away from the resort (a big reason I chose this ski destination), and the only thing I wanted to do was ski. So, did I need a car?!Well, even though the townhouse we rented came with a private garage, I was told that a car was absolutely unnecessary. This is true, but I discovered it would have been a very nice convenience per the Moose Creek condos. This lodging is located a shuttle drive above Teton Village, so we had to catch the bus whenever we needed to get to the bottom of the mountain to shop. (The shut...Read More
