Teton talk


Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Steds07: You have our admiration. Your self-admitted “first post ever” on Reddit is amazing. Of course, it’s hard to go wrong with a shot of the Tetons. user “Steds07” posted a pair of fantastic photos, the other from her visit to our valley. We enjoyed the pictures and the conversation on Reddit.

One response was from SensibleMadness: “Wyoming is beautiful country. I love to visit, but I know that much solitude would drive me crazy if I lived there for very long.”

The response from WyoPeeps was apropos: “The solitude is wonderful! I can leave my house and be in the middle of nowhere in 10 minutes.”

Best ski hotels in America

Jackson Hole landed three of the top 10 best U.S. après ski hotels on’s new list. David Johnston penned the piece for CNN Travel that included Kayak’s most popular 4- and 5-star ski destination lodgings.

“Whether it’s a spa treatment or a drink by the fire, here’s Kayak’s list of the perfect places to sit back, kick up your feet or plaster cast, and unwind,” Johnston wrote.

The Rusty Parrot Lodge scored love for their fantastic Finnish-style body massage and spa. “If you want to know how a Jackson, Wyoming hotel got such a tropical name, check out the bird at the front desk, then ask owner Ron Harrison for the full story,” Johnston wrote.

Kayak/CNN were also impressed with the eucalyptus steam room and special spa suites with soaking tubs at the Rustic Inn.

Johnston also proved he knew a little something about the valley when he wrote: “Yep, still in Jackson Hole,” when talking about the White Buffalo Club. He raved about the dinner and bar scene there.
