PARKING CHANGE - Click here for details on new location


TRANSPORTATION:
40 passenger bus complete with restroom facilities. Enjoy snacks, beer and other beverages on the bus.

SCHEDULE: Leave Cheyenne (location uncertain yet) promptly at 3:30 PM. Bus loading begins at 3 PM. We'll stop for food in Rock Springs and catch a few winks before arriving in Jackson around midnight. Our buses will take us out to Teton Village to ski each morning and pick us up after the lifts close. On Saturday those who are interested can take the local shuttle from Jackson to enjoy a day of skiing at Grand Targhee. On Sunday we'll check out and load up early before heading out to ski and then meet the bus at Teton Village for the ride home at 4:00 PM. We should be back in Cheyenne around midnight.

LODGING AND FOOD: We will stay at the Elk Country Inn located at the corner of Pearl and Flat Creek Drive, a few blocks from the town square. Dan, of the Elk Country Inn, will host his famous Elk Barbecue for us on Friday evening. Other meals will be on your own at any of the fine eateries in Jackson.

Double Queen = 2 queen beds, Triple queen = 2 queen beds + 1 queen bed in loft & kitchenette
Cabin = 2 queen beds and a double hide-a-bed couch & kitchenette.

Fine Print: We cannot guarantee lodging preferences. For example, if you are a single and want to share a triple queen with 5 others, this means you would be sharing a bed with someone. We might not be able to make that arrangement for you, in which case you would be responsible for the difference at whatever level you end up at. It is our expectation that this trip will be filled early enough that you will be given the option of withdrawing if the extra expense is too great.

DOWNHILL:
Jackson Hole Ski Resort at Teton Village, with 2500 acres of skiable terrain over two mountains, has unparalleled bowls, ridges, faces, chutes and powder for the advanced skier and plenty of intermediate trails for the less adventurous. The 63-passenger aerial tram serves the summit 4139 ft above the base and the area is additionally served by two quad chairs, one triple chair, four double chairs and two surface lifts. This is your last chance to take the Tram.

Grand Targhee Ski Resort is a 1500 acre powder paradise only and hour's shuttle bus ride west of Jackson. Enjoy the groomed slopes or run the untracked powder through the trees. The snow is reputed to be wonderfully light, from heaven, not hoses.

Snow King Ski Resort, right in the town of Jackson, offers a variety of runs, a terrific panoramic view of town and even night skiing for your enjoyment.

CROSS COUNTRY:
The Jackson Hole Nordic Center, located at Teton Village, has 17 km of groomed trails and offers rentals and lessons. Grand Teton National Park and Forest Service lands surrounding Jackson and Teton Village have miles of ungroomed trails as well as groomed trails at Cache Creek and Game Creek. Grand Targhee has a Nordic Center as well. If there is enough interest, we can look into renting a car for an extra cost.

OTHER ACTIVITIES:
Snowmobile into Yellowstone, dog-sled in to Granite Hot Springs, wagon ride on the National Elk Refuge, admire the national Museum of Wildlife Art, shop on or off the town Square, eat fancy or eat plain, tip a few in one of the rowdy bars, see a movie, ice skate, or even visit the library. There's just not much that can't be done in Jackson!
