apres skiJackson’s Apres Skiing scene is not to be missed. The holidays are here and with it, Jackson Hole’s annual influx of wintertime visitors. While many come to Jackson to make turns down our world class ski resort, tour the backcountry, or cross-country ski, others visit simply to take in the breathtaking beauty and partake in the art of après ski.

For those that are unfamiliar, après ski is most simply put, all about relaxation and socialization. It can vary from a trip to the sauna, a massage, a nap by the fire or cocktail hour. According to a recent article posted on CNN.com, it seems as though, Jackson is the place to visit if “apres” is high on your list.

The top 3 of the 10 destinations referenced in CNN’s article (see bottom of the page for link to full article) are all in the Town of Jackson:

  1. The Rusty Parrot—this 32-room lodge is one of the top small luxury hotels of the world. rustyparrot.com
  2. The Rustic Inn—adjacent to the National Elk refuge, this resort offers luxurious, private cabin accommodations. rusticinnatjh.com
  3. The White Buffalo Club—steps from the Jackson Town Square, this hotel is complimented by a renowned boutique spa and award winning restaurant. whitebuffaloclub.com

spaIn the past, Jackson has gained a reputation as a hardcore mountain town, with little to offer those who don’t participate in winter sports, but after reading this article I’m left asking, “what doesn’t Jackson have to offer?”
