Hard to believe another season of off-season specials is already behind us, but we’re happily looking forward to winter with all the snow we received for opening weekend at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The question now is: where can you après? There are a few restaurants that won’t reopen their doors until next weekend, but others are ready to refuel and rehydrate you after a day on the slopes…
The Alpenhof, Spur Restaurant & Bar, Mangy Moose, Il Villaggio Osteria, Bar Enoteca and The Handle Bar are all open and ready to warm you up on chilly ski days. Stock up for on-mountain snacks at Bodega or The General Store. Casper Restaurant and Corbet’s Cabin are two great resort options that are already open daily for the winter season. Piste won’t open up until Dec. 15, but the Off Piste Market will be an option off the gondola starting Dec. 1. Teton Thai reopens later this week (Nov. 28), while the Westbank Grill has been under renovation most of the off-season and doesn’t expect completion until mid-December.
West Bank and Wilson
We can always count on Calico on the West Bank and Streetfood at the Stagecoach, in Wilson, to keep their doors open year-round. But Teton Pines has also resumed their lunch and dinner service, if you’d like to keep your après country club classy. Don’t forget Sudachi when considering your West Bank options, and swing into Rations at Base Camp, in Wilson, pre or post-pass laps. The bagels at Pearl Street Bagels (or espresso) are always a good morning fuel-up as well.
Back open: Creekside Market & Deli has reopened after their short holiday hiatus.
Reopening this week: E.leaven Food Company and Glorietta will reopen Nov. 27. Dornan’s, in Moose, reopens on Nov. 30. Dec. 1 brings the reopening of Hayden’s Post, Jackson Drug and Palate. Snake River Grill will reopen Dec. 2.
Snow King Mountain
Another Jackson destination for winter activities, Snow King Mountain opens operations for the winter season on Dec. 2. Besides skiing, Snow King Mountain includes fun for the whole family with the winter Cowboy Coaster, King Tubes, scenic chairlift and night skiing options.
