Hot Crossed Buns: Winter Outdoor Dining in the age of COVID

Heated outdoor seating provides another solution to current social distancing guidelines. DragonSeat photo.

The great outdoors have made a comeback during the COVID-19 pandemic. National parks have seen record visitors, bike companies are completely sold out, and many restaurants have made large expansions to their outdoor dining options. But what does the arrival of winter mean for happy hour on the patio? While some restaurants are opting for things like semi-permanent heated geodesic domes or old gondola cars to offer heated dining experiences while adhering to social distancing protocols, DragonSeats is offering an alternative. The Ohio based company started out making heated benches for sports games that proved to also be perfect for ski resorts.

The heated benches are made from fiberglass and can be heated up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The company also offers an add on helmet warmer and spot to dry cold, wet gear out on.

A number of resorts have already begun utilizing these toasty benches. Stratton Mountain, Catamount Ski Resort, Okemo Mountain Resort, Butternut Ski Resort, and Boston Mills/Brandywine resort have all installed DragonSeats to enhance the winter outdoor dining experience. Most recently, one of these heated seats popped up at Jackson Hole’s Alpenhof Lodge with a view of the Tetons from the bench.

While these benches may not be the only solution to increasing winter outdoor dining, they certainly provide a pretty good one. We’re pretty stoked here in Jackson to have something to keep our buns warm for those cold après beers.

This is one of the best sites that discuss about interesting sports-related content and they have shared about the winter outdoor dining in the age of covid-19. I think this is something related to travel or something like that CBD Oil for Intestinal health

It was reported that the man enjoyed cat stew, and as a result, was soon hauled off to the asylum and forgotten. Until now. Rumor has it that he has escaped.

Remember JHMR’s Bottomless January of 2020?

Japan or Jackson? Caite Zeliff sampling the Japow like conditions at JHMR last winter. Nic Alegre photo. Every so often, a storm cycle comes through Jackson Hole that is so marvelous it’s cemented in local lore. They’re the kind of weather events that crusty ski bums will tell you about after one too many shots of whiskey. They’ll get this far-off look in their eyes and exclaim, “Remember the January of 2020?” For those of you who weren’t in Jackson during that magical month last year,
