How to survive Snowmageddon 2017: alcohol, soup, fireplaces, a friend with a shovel…just kidding a plow… and a dream of somewhere warm. Let’s face it, the past week has been a little bit of chaos here in Jackson. Schools have been canceled for the first time since the 90’s, places have been flooding, avalanches have been flowing, and I’m pretty sure there were quite a few days where the only way to get out of either Teton Valley or Jackson was to phone our favorite local celebrity, Han Solo, and ask for a helicopter ride out. In honor of Snowmageddon we reached out to a few places around town to find out how they warm up during this winter white out.
Warm Up with Booze
Amrita, Snake River Grill, and The Kitchen all offer great drinks that warm you up from the core and make you think that you are kind of enjoying the fact that you can’t go outside without the fear of a giant snow ball falling on your head from the roof or neighboring tree.

Warm Up with Soup
There are a lot of great soup options around town and in the winter you can find one at almost every restaurant. Spots like Pearl Street Bagels have soups that change almost daily so you can enjoy a great variety, Jackson Whole Grocer has a wonderful hot food bar serving up some delicious chicken noodle soup, and the Q Roadhouse has Roger’s Clam Chowder.
Sidewinders french onion soup is so popular that it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and the Silver Dollar’s famous corn chowder is a staple in most Jacksonites diets. No matter what you are craving you can more then likely find it at any of the great spots around town or browse through our recipe section of the blog for delicious soup recipes like Allison’s broccoli, spinach and coconut soup.
Now turn on your fireplace or space heater, fill up with some great warm soup, and mix up a favorite winter drink. Start planning your next warm vacation, check out our Issue 10 story on Palm Springs or our recent blog post on a fun trip to Mexico and dream of a day when you can walk to the end of your driveway without having to shovel first. Good luck Jackson, at least the skiing is epic!
