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 springs.

More information

Granite Hot Springs

In 1935 Granite Hot Springs was opened, including a campground, changing facilities, and a deck that still operates today. About a half-mile downstream is Granite Falls, which appears in this video with a more primitive pool that served as one of the locations in A River Runs Through It (and this video). During the winter it can be accessed by skis, snowshoes, snowmobile or dogsled.

More information.

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.

GoPro is sustained by an odd psychological phenomenon: We watch their videos and can't help but imagine ourselves doing comparably-cool things. "Yeah, I might not be [pro athlete], but I [did a cool thing] at [location].

Before Jimmy Carter was President, He Canoed Some Sketchy Sh*t

Before Jimmy Carter was President, He Canoed Some Sketchy Sh*t

Teddy Rosevelt wasn’t the only president that spent quality time outdoors. Before he was in the White House, Carter was running whitewater. In 1974 Carter canoed Georgia’s Chattooga River in an open-faced canoe with pal Claude Terry, owner of southeastern expeditions. They managed to survive the wild Bull Sluice rapid, which is a prominent class IV rapid that even keeps the most experienced boaters on their toes. That feat made the duo the first to ever complete a tandem canoe descent of the
