One of my favorite ski destinations on the planet, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, which has been rated Number One in North America, is debuting a new event this season, the inaugural Jackson Hole Food & Wine Winter Fest, a 3-day event with celebrity chef Tyler Florence and superstar restaurateur Drew Neiporant (Tribeca Grill, Nobu Restaurants) as the headliners. The schedule includes a Big Wines, Small Plates pairing dinner, Best of Après Ski at the Forbes 5-Star Four Seasons Jackson Hole, a great slopeside hotel that includes an Old West influenced gastropub by Michelin-starred and James Beard Award winning star chef Michael Mina, whiskey tasting and on-mountain wine event. But it’s coming up fast, in a week, and as I wrote this, tickets were going fast. 

Jackson Hole Winter Fest: En & In Vogue

A rather chic spotlight on upcoming Winter Fest hits the Vogue wire highlighting the latest best reason to visit famed Jackson Hole this winter. 

A wintry vacation in Jackson Hole—where the buffalo roam and hot toddies flow like water—promises epic adventures, whether you’re opting to ski, snowshoe, or imbibe warm libations with epic Teton views. Plus, the Wyoming town’s food scene is gaining major street cred—so much, in fact, that it’s playing host to a noteworthy food festival happening slopeside this winter.

Winter Fest Primer

Exactly two-months from today the first-ever winter food-focused event to hit the slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort kick off with Jackson Hole Food & Wine’s Winter Fest.


With the ski season flying by and while we have your brief attention, allow us to provide a primer on all-you-need-to-know about Jackson Hole’s inaugural Winter Fest. Tickets are selling or already-sold-out, so act fast and step up your foodie game and snag a seat at the table.



WHO: A food network favorite Chef Tyler Florence is terra firma for the three-day event. The piece de resistance? Florence cheffing it up at 9,000 FT with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort's Piste Mountain Bistro. While this baller shindig is sold out, there's still time to get up-close and personal with the convivial Chef at Big Wines, Small Plates (where Florence is one of five featured presenting panelists) or catch Tyler and Sous Chef at Taste of Teton Village where these fellas will be in attendance sipping and swirling alongside Jackson locals and visiting travelers.


WHAT: This food and beverage-fueled winter event is a first and includes a heavy lineup of long established local participating chefs, restaurants and beverages purveyors as well as newcomers. Everyone is working hard to service the best experience for Winter Fest guests with the basic idea? #eatdrinkskisupport. Wait, what’s the support part? Jackson Hole Food & Wine is a non-profit dedicated to good food and drink as well as the greater good. @holefoodrescue is a beneficiary partner this year.


WHERE: The Big One. AKA, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village, WY. Reason enough to come to Wyoming, now you can eat and drink like royalty while skiing the iconic Mountain.


WHEN: March 8-10, 2018. Check the full f&b lineup and keep in mind, it’s a great time to be in Jackson Hole. With annual Rendezvous Fest welcoming spring in the Tetons the following week, visitors might want to make a big trip out of it for the ultimate package tour.



In the meantime, we will be strategically skiing and riding up a storm here since it’s a fun, easy way to augment all that eating and drinking to come. We can’t wait and hope you’ll join us for a great little winter food fest in Jackson Hole.
