Santa arrived early over the weekend at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Whenever he visits Jackson Hole, Mr. Claus makes sure his visit is in keeping with Jackson’s more extreme approach and rappels in red-suit style from the iconic tram. Consider it Santa’s alpine answer to a sleigh.
Only in Jackson Hole…
It’s a festive and fun time of year everywhere but if this Santa drop illustrates anything, it’s absolutely Jackson Hole’s particular brand of Christmas magic. While the ever-emerging ski area increasingly morphs into a resort, most visitors won’t find the mechanical, Disney-esque touch often typical of mega ski resorts around the holidays, rather it’s a more low- key, no frills and authentic celebratory sense driven by enthusiastic locals, the family friendly vibe of intimate Teton Village and the pervasive love for mountain culture.
There’s loads of ways to celebrate the season in Jackson Hole for locals and visitors alike. As far as the mountain is concerned, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has rounded up a hearty holiday schedule between now and the New Year. Kick it off with a visit from Cowboy Santa at Teton Mountain Lodge, Holiday Caroling on Christmas Eve at the Four Seasons Jackson Hole and take it all the way to the annual Torchlight Parade.
