As warmer temperatures bring blue bird days, the powder conditions aren’t the only things getting slushie at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
There’s something brewing at Nick Wilson’s Cowboy Café in Teton Village…slushies. Since last winter, Nick’s has been churning out a rotating variety of slushies. In the summer, the machine’s contents include virgin daiquiris for the kids, with the option to add alcohol for adults. Cooler winter temps have not deterred slushie consumers, as the batches of slushies are replaced once or twice daily. The consistency of the slushies at Nick Wilson’s resembles adult milkshakes, unlike some of the icier products offered at other slushie stations in the valley. The thickness complements the swirl of whip cream adorning each of the slushies.
Last week, the two featured flavors were creamsicle and white Russian. The most popular flavor has been the Painkiller, which includes Coco Lopez rum, pineapple juice and orange juice, topped with whipped cream and nutmeg. Rumor has it, a Bushwacker is in the works, a slushie that will include white and dark rum, coffee and coffee liquor. It’s sure to be the perfect caffeine jolt for another lap up the tram.
Regain the calories burned on the slopes with one of Nick Wilson’s double patty smash burgers. Using local fresh ground beef, the smashing technique lends the stacked patties an outer crisp from the grill, while locking juices inside.
Every Saturday from March 4 through April 9, Nick Wilson’s will be a prime location to enjoy Music Under the Tram. A free concert series in its sixth year at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, it’s sure to be the cherry on top of your Saturday après.
