When skiers and snowboarders rip down the slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort this winter, they’ll have a whole new mid-mountain location to enjoy. Solitude Station is opening up for the first time this season, offering mid-mountain learning opportunities to adults and kids aged 7 and up. The 12,000-square-foot facility hosts the mid-mountain sports school as well as dining and rental spaces, and is accessed via Sweetwater Gondola’s mid-station.
Lessons for younger kids and private lessons are available lower on the mountain. The resort also offers numerous camps, including multi-day options like Steep & Deep, Adaptive Steep & Deep, women’s camps, race camps, and even one with a mindfulness focus.
Skiers and snowboarders will find plenty of room to roam all over the mountain, which offers everything they desire, including deep pow stashes, steep chutes, mellow groomers, and terrain parks with plenty of features for practicing tricks. Riding the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram to the summit and skiing or snowboarding 4,139 vertical feet back to the base is an unparalleled experience.
Even those who don’t ski or snowboard can enjoy a ride to the top of Rendezvous Mountain. Sightseeing tickets are available and visitors can climb on the tram—also known as Big Red—along with skiers and boarders for the ride to the summit. Up top, enjoy stunning views and savor one of Corbet’s Cabin’s famous waffles before hopping a ride back to the base.
Teton Village is a hot spot for family fun both on and off the slopes. Glide around the ice skating rink or watch little ones light up with delight at family-friendly events like Skiing with Santa, stargazing, and raptor adventures.
For a relaxing day, sample luxurious spas, enjoy a facial, massage, or one of many other spa treatments available, decompress in a tranquility lounge, or spend the afternoon soaking in a hot tub and taking in the mountain views.
Spend some time shopping in Teton Village. Upgrade your gear or buy some new duds at Jackson Hole Sports, Teton Village Sports, Nomad Sports Shop, and Mudroom. Or check out the numerous other shopping options in the area, including Rodeo, Mountain Khakis, and shops at the Mangy Moose.
After a long day out and about, satisfy your hunger and quench your thirst at a variety of locations throughout Teton Village. Après favorites include the Alpenhof, Mangy Moose, Spur, The Handle Bar, and wine-focused Bar Enoteca.
Restaurants offer everything from fine dining to casual pizza and tacos, so take your pick from a number of delicious options. RPK3 is this season’s new dining option, located right at the base. The restaurant is named after the resort’s code for a big powder day and specializes in dishing up comfort food and “healthy-ish” options. Other restaurants include South Cable Pizza, Teton Thai, Il Villaggio Osteria, and Westbank Grill, among many other delectable spots.
Cap off the night with a cocktail and live music at the Mangy Moose, or any of the other bars in Teton Village or Jackson. Wherever you choose to go, don’t forget to take advantage of taxis, rideshare services, or the START bus to get back home or to your hotel safely.
