Hello, my name in Nate Owens and I am part of the Reservations team at Jackson Hole Resort Lodging.
It was less than a month ago that our furry national weather predictor, Punxsutawney Phil, poked his head up and predicted another six weeks of winter. At the time I scoffed a little because we had experienced a warmer than average January. Fast forward to February and March where things look very different!
February was full of productive snow cycles that helped to bring our current snow totals to an impressive 368”. The skiing and snowboarding has been outstanding, with plenty of classic Jackson powder days to put a smile on the faces of locals and visitors alike. But for me personally, one of my favorite times of the ski season is just around the corner - spring skiing! The combination of warmer weather and a calendar full of fun events makes March and early-April one of the best times of the year to experience Jackson Hole.
Spring skiing in Jackson Hole is when some of my favorite memories have been created over the years. The days are getting longer, the sun in getting stronger, and when the clouds part on those 30 degree days and there is perfectly groomed corduroy under your feet it’s almost impossible not to laugh a little on your way down. It’s an amazing experience!
In my opinion, there is no better way to wrap up a day of skiing with friends or family than to grab a beverage and a chair on the deck of Casper restaurant and let the sun shine down on everyone as you recount the best lines of the day.
March is also the most jam-packed month of entertainment in Teton Village. Families can enjoy the village ice rink (insert ice skating info) before taking in one of the awesome FREE concerts coming up for Rendezvous Festival. This year Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has lined up an incredible array of musicians, ranging from the Devon Allman Project to the upbeat and Emmy Award Winning Portugal. The Man as well as Michael Franti and Spearhead.
And as if people needed more reasons to get excited for the upcoming spring ski season, other popular offerings are returning to JHMR as well! The Town Downhill happens this weekend, as well as Music Under the Tram which brings in beloved local bands to keep the stoke high as people board the tram, gondolas and lifts each weekend.
Now is the time to book your last minute spring skiing trip to beautiful Jackson Hole with Jackson Hole Resort Lodging to take advantage of warmer weather, a roster of fun activities, and unbeatable spring skiing. Do not forget about our Kids Ski Free promotion, Ski and Stay as well as Mountain Collective offers for savings on your trip.
I’ll hopefully see you out on the slopes as we carve the spring corn!
