Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Winter Itinerary
During the winter months, it’d be fun to stay in Teton Village but if you want a livelier night scene, Jackson would be better. Teton Village is right at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Hotel Terra, Trivago.com
Hotel Terra: Really modern and chic, awesome views and it is ski in and ski out. They have a rooftop hot tub too! Also inside the hotel is Il Villagio Osteria which is a great Italian restaurant with awesome cocktails. I would recommend here for apps and cocktails.
Teton Mountain Lodge: This is the hotel I used to work at! It is really cozy and nice and it is owned by the same company as Hotel Terra. They also have a rooftop hot tub, indoor pool, and heated outdoor pool. Inside the hotel is one of the best restaurants in Teton Village – it is called Spur. They have amazing food (Chef has been voted best chef in the valley 9 years in a row), best cocktails and this is where everyone goes for apres ski. It’s so fun. You have to get the spicy margs and Insomnias. SO GOOD!
Four Seasons: I mean it is the four seasons so it’ll be really awesome but you’re going to pay way more and personally it’s not worth it (trust me you’ll find plenty of places you will be spending all of your money at haha) but you never hear anything bad about the place so up to you!
In Teton Village:
Teton Thai: Best Thai food EVER!
Spur – I mentioned above, it is inside Teton Mountain Lodge and the best place to apres.
Local – the BEST happy hour and cocktails and dinner. This is every local’s favorite as well as tourists. This is where I met Harrison Ford so keep your eyes peeled for celeb sightings because there is sure to be one.
Bin 22 – tapas restaurant that is bomb. Go and grab a bottle or two of wine and order everything on the menu. Great dinner place especially girls night and such.
King Sushi – another amazing happy hour option. They can only seat 20 people in this old cabin so make sure you go at 4:30pm when they open and happy hour lasts until 5:30! It’s $3 wells drinks and $5 wines and sushi specials too.
Sweet Cheeks Meats – awesome grab and go breakfast and lunch shop! You will not be disappointed and the owners are the sweetest people so everyone loves supporting them.
Teton Tiger- asian fusion restaurant that has the best indian food. Also really great cocktails.
The Phoenix and The Dragon – newish place that has opened since I’ve moved and wish it had opened before I did. SO awesome and healthier options!
Cuttys– It’s a Philly bar with 30 different philly cheese steak options and the best pizza in town.
Snake River Grill – the best restaurant and the most expensive restaurant in the valley 🙂 but its worth it. Their steak tartar pizza for appetizer is VERY famous and a MUST ORDER.
Nora’s (in wilson, closer to teton village) – best. brunch. ever.
Peresphone – best. egg sandwich. ever. and honestly just like my fave place ever.
Trio – sister restaurant to Local and equally dank. This is where Will took me on our first date so it’s especially special to me! Always a great menu and service!
Creekside – no better sandwiches in the valley. Turkey club on a croissant was my go-to order for three years and it never let me down. The best place to stop and grab some yummies before heading off to your adventure!
Thai Me Up- really good happy hour specials (order the skid curry, no ragrets) with super dank wings, fries, asian fusionish foods and good beers brewed in house!
Big Hole BBQ – BURNT ENDS MY GOD. Kanye’s favorite spot haha.

Snowmobiling – so there are a few options here. My favorites are:
- Brooks Lake Lodge: Miles and miles of open trails to roam around however you want. You pass the continental divide and there’s so much more snow up Togowotee Pass, it is amazing up there. You get to see another part of Wyoming with Teton views and other mountains and its incredible. I love this tour.
- Granite Hot Springs: you are snowmobiling on a regular road but it leads you to the most incredible natural hot spring. If you do the full day tour, you get to be in the hot spring for way longer and it comes with lunch. Really fun!
- Yellowstone: There is nothing like being in Yellowstone in the winter. no vehicles are allowed in Yellowstone during winter months so the only people you see are people in snow coaches or snowmobiles. It’s insanely beautiful but you will be very tired at the end of the day!
Dogsledding – there are two options here but i would only recommend dogsledding at togwotee pass. It’s incredible and the owner treats his dogs nicely.
Grand Teton National Park – you can take a wildlife tour with a guide which would be fun if you’ve never been in the park and you will learn a lot. But I would recommend renting snowshoes and going on a hike 🙂 the rangers can recommend some good ones based on the snowpack but Taggart and Bradley Lakes are always good ones.
National Elk Refuge– It’s an ABSOLUTE must that you go here. If you will have a car, drive through and big horn sheep and elk will come lick your tires! But there’s a company called bar-t 5 that does sleigh rides that is absolutely gorgeous and really fun.
National Museum of Wildlife Art– I don’t know about you but i love galleries and museums and Jackson has a really cool one in town! It has the largest collection of wildlife art in the country and it’s awesome.
Play At Night
Snow Mobiling, NPR
In Teton Village/ Wilson:
Mangy Moose: they always have live music for apres and sometimes late night too.
The Stagecoach: DISCO night is Thursday nights and sooooooo fun. Must go.
[my usual Friday night line up was Bin 22->Local->Cowboy->Rose]
Cowboy Bar– this is A MUST. It’s a Jackson staple and very famous because it has saddles as seats at the bar. It’s a really fun place where the locals go to play pool and hang out and tourists go for pictures. It’s awesome.
The Rose– on Friday night’s it’s DJ night so it’s like a club in there. LOL. It’s fun but they are famous because it’s an amazing specialty cocktail bar.
Pinky G’s – close out the night with a slice of pizza from here. It’s worth it.
The Wort – bluegrass night on Tuesday nights. Really fun atmosphere! Get ready to dance.
