Vanlife Log, day 23. It’s morning in Jackson Hole, and there is snow that needs to be explored. We pass mountains, and a sea of open land covered in total white, beautiful snow. A left turn takes us into the Teton Village, and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
I don’t know what it is, or if I’ll ever grow out of it, but there is something magical about snow. Being around it seems to add a twinkle of invisible excitement to the air. Something comparable to Christmas spirit.
Jackson Hole Mountain Parking
$20 to park by the mountain
Free parking is down the street, and a complementary shuttle will bring you to the mountain.
Jackson Hole Mountain Dinning
7342 Granite Loop Rd, Teton Village, WY
(Just across the way from the Mountain, beyond the parking lot, on the other side of the street)
The best Thai food I’ve ever had! You will find 4-5 star reviews everywhere. The seating is limited, but there is a nice waiting area with a fireplace where you can enjoy a delicious Thai Tea or Spicy Margarita, made with jalapeño. Try the Tom Kha Gai, a coconut milk soup with lemongrass and Mushrooms.
The General Store
At the base of the mountain, near the lift ticket sales booth. Try a blackberry, almond milk, ginger smoothie. Our little one loved it.
Jackson Hole Mountain Lift Tickets
$50 gives you access to 2 small lifts
$32 Aerial Tram holds 100 people and takes you to the top of Rendezvous Mountain at 10,450 ft
$20 Gondola takes you halfway up the mountain to a restaurant and snack bar and includes $10 in food
And for the rest of us looking for unrestricted epic rides on this 2,500 acre mountain, here are our options.
The price of a single 1 day lift ticket is more than we paid for a 4 day pass at Copper Mountain, CO.
The price of a single day lift ticket is also more than a 3 month spring season pass at Timberline in MT Hood, OR.
But it sure is big and pretty!
