Playgrounds: Jackson Hole is More than Just Skiing

When you think of Jackson Hole in the winter, the images of skiers and snowboarders ripping around the snow-capped mountains of the Tetons instantly come to mind. Although for the winter months this is true there are plenty of other options for enjoying the mountains that don’t include sliding down a snowy hill. Last year we followed a group of Jackson locals on a different type of adventure in order to showcase what else can be done during a winter day in the Tetons.

In this Video:

Griffin Post

Although he was raised in Sun Valley, Griffin Post’s adoptive home is the Tetons. The riding around Jackson perfectly suits Griffin, who is known for skiing large mountains at an ungodly speed. Since TGR's 2013 film Way of Life, he has left his mark on the Tetons, skiing big lines like the East Face of the Middle Teton, Apocalypse Couloir, Mt. Moran and countless other peaks with a style and grace all his own. When not in the mountains Griffin is a talented writer and one of the few professional skiers that also has earned an MBA.

Cam Fitzpatrick

Professional snowboarder Cam Fitzpatrick was born and raised in Jackson Hole. The son of a ski patroller, he ditched his skis for a snowboard after watching Travis Rice rip around Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Years later he had his full-circle moment when he was a part of Travis Rice’s project, The Fourth Phase. Now Cam can be seen shredding around the resort and starting his own small business, Bar-SIP-Bar.

Blaine Gallivan

You might recognize Blaine Gallivan from his antics this winter during the King’s and Queen’s of Corbet's competition. He took home third for his send into the infamous couloir this past edition of the contest. When Blaine isn't skiing you can find him slinging bread at the People’s and Farmer’s Market. Blaine found his passion for baking when an injury sidelined him for the season. Now Blaine and his partner Franny run their own backing company, In-season JH.

Franny Weikert

Franny is one of the founders of In-Season JH and brings a passion for locally sourced food and ingredients. A shredder in every season she can be found alongside her partner Blaine cooking up pizzas at private events and local farmer's markets. 

Places:

Leisure Sports Rentals

There are a variety of ways to access Granite Hot Springs including guided tours and dogsleds but if you want to have a little bit more control over your adventure we would recommend Leisure Sports Rentals. It’s TGR’s go-to spot when we need to rent snowmobiles for our own trips. You can rent a vehicle, trailer, and snowmobile all for a reasonable amount and enjoy your own day cruising the trails around the valley.

More information

Granite Hot Springs

In 1935 Granite Hot Springs was opened, including a campground, changing facilities, and a deck that still operates today. During the winter it can be accessed by skis, snowshoes, snowmobile or dogsled.

The Bird

The Bird Restaurant is a local favorite with an incredible selection of burgers and beer. Their motto is “if you're a fun-sucker, uptight, unhappy or demanding, maybe try somewhere else that's a little more geared to your sort.” It’s the perfect spot to end a day in Jackson.

More information.

InSeason JH

In Season provides sourdough bread products, wood-fired pizzas and other organic and locally sourced nourishment to weddings and gatherings under the Tetons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Created by Franny and Blaine. if you are planning on staying in the Tetons for a season it’s definitely worth signing up for their bread share program, with delicious locally sourced products each week.

It's every kayaker's worst nightmare, getting pushed off line and into a strainer. That's exactly what happened to french kayaker Rapheal Urscheler, who gets pinned under a log while paddling the "Ex du Bas" on the Ubaye river. Luckily for him he was able to keep his head and was able to push off the log and slide under. Everything worked out, but this video serves as a useful reminder on how quickly it can go from bad to good on the river.  RELATED: A Perfect Example of How Not to Kayak
