What a winter it has been here in Jackson Hole! With over 580 inches of snow, this has been one of the best ski seasons in recent history. As we say goodbye to the melting snow and welcome the spring sunshine we want to share a few end of the season highlights and then take a look ahead at the coming months.

Rendezvous Spring Festival

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort celebrated its 4th Annual Rendezvous Spring Festival, with Zac Brown Band returning as the headliner.
Jackson offers a variety of year-round art and cultural events. The Grand Teton Music Festival boasts one of the most recognized symphony orchestras in the Rocky Mountains, while JacksonHoleLive is an all-ages, outdoor summer concert series at Snow King Ball Park in downtown Jackson.

 

42 Annual Pole Pedal Paddle

The five-leg race starts at the top of JHMR and finishes at Astoria Hot Springs in Snake River Canyon. Contestants compete either individually or in teams, completing an alpine ski/snowboard leg, a short running leg, a cross-country ski leg, a bicycle leg, and a boating leg.

 

New Dining Options

Two new Italian Restaurants joined the JH food scene this winter. Glorietta is an Italian Trattoria where the focus is handmade pasta and wood-fired cooking.
Voted the Best New Restaurant in Jackson Hole, Orsetto is an Italian bar and eatery serving Italian American classics – make sure to try the Negronis!
