Getting off the airport in Jackson Hole was CRAZY COLD and WINDY! It was ubleievable! We ended up with a pretty awesome SUV and checked into the Rusty Parrot Lodge. The restaurant here, Wild Sage, was unreal. The truffle and sea salt bread was amazing! The chefs here were top notch. It was an intimate experience with five tables, a fire place and the kitchen connected and open to the dining room. We ate here a couple times.
The first day we accuainted ourselves with the little town we were staying in, found a cute organic grocery store, rented our skiis at the Teton Village, and enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi (which ended up becoming a regular thing to do after getting back each day from skiing :)). It dumped snow every day but maybe one while we were there! I couldnt believe the minimal visibility, it was a White Out!
We skied for the very first time together ever! It was so much fun! The powder was deep and the slopes were pretty challenging because you really couldnt see much. We found a really cool brewery, Snake River Brewery, where we would go have a beer and a snack after a long day of skiig. Everyone there was so friendly and cool to us. We tried another restaurant that was recommended to us from the people we met; Rendevous Bistro, which we went to a couple times, and loved it.
We skied 3 days and had an amazing time together! (like always 🙂 )
On the last day, we spent the afternoon watching the playoffs to the superbowl (New England and the Ravens) at the Snake River Brewery. We had a blast!
