Grab a fresh pastry and a cup of Snake River Roasting Co. coffee from the lobby before a 6am hotel pick-up. You’ll be headed out to experience the quiet and serenity of the mountains from a new perspective as you take flight over jaw-dropping views in a hot air balloon ride over the Tetons. After your descent, ride the aerial tram up to the Top of the World. You’ll climb 4,000 vertical feet in elevation to check out 360-degree views of the Jackson Hole valley; then, return to Teton Village and grab lunch at one of our favorites, Teton Thai. Post-fuel, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife as you make the drive towards Grand Teton National Park. There, you’ll experience the infamous Snake River on a scenic, sunset float trip through the Park. Drop your gear at the hotel before grabbing one of our custom Woolrich bikes and heading over to Snake River Brewpub to end the night with hands around the fire pit, a game of cornhole, and a tasting flight of locally-made beers.


After grabbing a cup of Snake River Roasting Co. coffee from the lobby, load up your backpack with a handful of picnic favorites and get ready for an adventure-packed day. As you head out of town towards Grand Teton National Park, hit up Pearl Street Bagels for some early morning fuel. Drive out to the trailhead for Phelps Lake, first checking out the Rockefeller Preserve Visitor’s Center to read up on the surrounding area. Keep your eyes peeled for local flora and wildlife as you hike down to the water – then find the best picnic perch and enjoy a day of swimming, cliff-jumping, and sun-bathing out at the lake. Pack it all out, and stop by Dornan’s to soak up their patio views with a cold beer in hand – bonus points if you make it there on a Monday for the Hootenanny.


Wake slowly and head down to the lobby for a cup of our signature coffee blend by Snake River Roasting Co. Grab a magazine or a guidebook to browse while you sip – and once you’ve woken up, get ready to stretch and move during a yoga class at a local studio, Inversion Yoga. Afterwards, wander through the famous elk antler arches at Jackson Town Square to reach Persephone Bakery, a French-inspired café, and indulge in a brunch of fresh eats, pastries, and Intelligentsia espresso. Once you head back to the hotel, ask our front desk to schedule a tasting at Jackson Hole Winery and head out for an afternoon of exploring their century-old barn while enjoying award-winning wines. Soak in the sunshine and patio views, and listen to growers discuss their process and connection to our valley. When you make it back to town, catch the sunset over dinner on the patio of Glorietta Trattoria. Try a few handmade pastas, shared plates, and a cocktail from Proprietors (the team behind New York’s Death & Co.)


Wake early and get ready for a long day of photo-taking and sightseeing in one of the most renowned National Parks in the country -- Yellowstone. With a 12-hour day on tap, pack a picnic and head out the door no later than 7am with a Snake River Roasting Co. coffee and pastry from our lobby in hand. Spend the day driving the Inner Loop of Yellowstone (go clockwise!) and getting shots of some of the most photogenic landscapes in the country. Take your pick of our must-see places, or try to catch them all! In order: Lewis Falls; Old Faithful; Grand Prismatic Springs; Fountain Paint Poits; Firehole Falls; Artist Paint Pots; Norris Geyser Basin; Upper and Lower Yellowstone Falls; Mud Volcano; West Thumb Geyser Basin. Be sure to stop for lunch at a picnic site near Old Faithful, or grab something from the nearby market – either way, grab a milkshake from their diner before heading out for the rest of the afternoon. Complete the loop and charge back to Jackson to enjoy dinner over at Glorietta Trattoria -- and be sure to grab a nightcap before heading back to your room for well-earned rest.
