Spring Creek’s Derek Goodson Describes Skiing in Jackson Hole
Skiing in Jackson Hole is either sunshine or powder, or both.
Today, we saw a beautiful sunny day with great groomers, and as seen by the empty chairs, no crowds.
The view from the top of Sublette chair at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort looking south over Jackson Hole just never gets tiring.
Spring Creek Ranch can be seen atop of the East Gros Ventre Butte between the Town of Jackson and the Teton Mountain Range.
Looking to the north behind the Tram is the National Elk Refuge and Grand Teton National Park, and two more reasons to be in Jackson Hole in the winter.
Kathi Davis Explores the Park on Cross Country Skis
Just because it’s winter outside doesn’t mean you can’t get out and have some fun.
Grand Teton National Park is a winter playground for those that get out and experience it and it’s only about a half hour away from Spring Creek Ranch.
Cross country skiing is a great way to explore the park, you get a little exercise and the chance to see moose, elk, deer, and bison.
The day was so beautiful and the sun was calling me to get out! The snow sparkled all around while we watched a bald eagle soar overhead. In front of me are moose tracks crossing the meadow. Truly breathtaking!
Sharon Kuehn Celebrates Anniversary the Jackson Hole Way
We celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary with a sleigh ride at Spring Creek Ranch and dinner at the Granary Restaurant.
On our sleigh ride, we were taken to the top of the butte and the views are breathtaking! We could see Sleeping Indian and the National Elk Refuge, and of course the beautiful Teton Mountains.
Our dinner at The Granary Restaurant was fantastic. The views from the floor to ceiling windows gave us a spectacular view of the sunset over the Teton Mountain Range. For dinner, my husband and I both had fillet mignon and it was prepared to perfection.
Chef Jason Mitchell came out to our table, along with the others dining that evening as well, to see if the food had been prepared to our satisfaction. The meal, the staff, and the atmosphere were perfect!
Thank you for making our special day feel as special as it did 12 years ago!
For the fisherman that can’t wait until the boat ramps are clear there is another type of winter recreation that can be had on top of the ice. There is no better place to be than on the ice at Jackson Lake.
We started our day hoping for the snowmobile to start, but with the sun beaming off the snow, and thoughts of big lake trout we had to go. We packed up the sleds and headed out to one of our favorite spots.
The fishing was incredible. We spent the day at the base of the Tetons trying to decide who was the better anlger, and planning the fish fry we were going to have!
