• Spring

Spring is perhaps the most under-rated season in Jackson Hole, due to the somewhat unpredictable weather between the end of ski season and official start of summer. Wildlife is extremely active during spring, with some species emerging from their winter slumber, mothers tending to their young and others migrating through the valley to prepare for the summer. You will likely have Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks to yourself, and May and June are filled with special events highlighting the rich western history of the valley. Our local concierge team is passionate about all things Jackson Hole and will assist you to create a most memorable spring experience.

Wild West

Saddle up and soak in the western charm of Jackson Hole and the surrounding valley. Old West Days is a favorite local event for residents and guests alike, celebrating the rich history, stories and culture of Jackson. The rodeo season kicks off the season while the Mountain Man Rendezvous celebrates the rugged spirit of the west. Find your inner cowboy and treat yourself to a custom boot and hat fitting so you will be ready to hit the trails on horseback and soak up the incredible views. If you are not too tired, you can brush off your boots and hit to dance floor at Jackson’s famous Cowboy Bar. Little wranglers will enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride to an authentic chuck-wagon dinner, complete with Cowboy poetry and other entertainment.

Wildlife Viewing Adventure

As the snow melts and the days grow longer, the Jackson eco system transforms, with wildlife becoming more active, and many species waking up from hibernation or migrating back to the valley. Spring is one of the best times for a wildlife tour. The arrival of bison calves and bear cubs also signal that winter is over and spring has sprung. As early as March, the songbirds also return, followed by the birds of prey. There are many options for customized wildlife tours, depending on your specific goals and interests. Tours can be half day or full day with a gourmet picnic included, itineraries are personalized to accommodate kids of all ages, making sure everyone is comfortable, engaged and inspired by what they see and learn about the incredible eco-systems of the regions. Did you know that moose antlers can grow an inch per day?

Golf

It may be hard to keep your eye on the ball while golfing with the Tetons as your backdrop. Spring golf in Jackson and Teton Valley is a bit of an undiscovered secret, with multiple options including lots of availability, expertly designed courses, dramatic views, challenging terrain (you might have to putt around a moose) and balls that fly farther thanks to the high altitude. There are 2 semi-private course options in Jackson as well as several semi-private and public courses in Teton Valley, just over a mountain pass from Jackson. Rentals, lessons and temporary memberships are also available.

Spring Into Spring

Spring is a time for renewal, reawakening, personal growth and transformation. It’s a time to shake off the Winter cold and get excited about warmer weather and longer days. In Jackson Hole, the National Parks are blooming with new life, wildlife is very active as it emerges from Winter hibernation, and hiking trails are lined with wildflowers. All of this sets the tone for fresh possibilities on any wellness journey. You will likely have the trails to yourself on a spring hike, bike ride or trail run. Find a secluded spot to sit down, relax and enjoy the calming sights, sounds and smells of nature.  Many local restaurants offer special pricing over the Spring, as they transition to lighter, fresher menus with more locally sourced ingredients. Local spas, wellness centers and individual practitioners also embrace the arrival of Spring, often offering special promotions and introducing new seasonal treatments and services. After a day of reconnecting with nature, return to your luxury villa for an in-residence massage or private yoga practice. We can arrange for a chef to prepare a delicious meal with fresh, local ingredients, while you sit outside and enjoy the evening alpenglow.

The Clear Creek Group Villa Rental & Concierge Team can arrange everything for you, so all you have to think about is fun. Just give us a call.

INSIGHTS FROM OUR TEAM

A perfect late spring day off in Jackson…

“One of the best days starts with a quick morning hike up Josie’s Ridge. Then stop by Creekside Deli for a sandwich and sloshie, on the way to Jackson Lake for a boating excursion. After spending time at the lake, swimming, boating or paddle-boarding, head back into town for a happy hour session at either King Sushi (for their Theo roll) or Bin 22 (for the Spanish Salad and the Meatball!)”

“Crystal Light, a 300-foot butte 2 miles from the Town Square has a tough climb, but it’s short and the top of the butte is a great picnic spot with views of the Tetons and town. Kids will likely find animal bones to investigate along the way. The hike to Phelps Lake from the Laurence Rockefeller Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park is longer (3 miles round-trip instead of 1), but it’s flat and kids love playing in Phelps Lake, even if most adults find the water frigid!”
