Jackson Hole resort information & après-ski
Après-ski in Jackson Hole takes place in various lively slopeside bars. The Mangy Moose (tel: (307) 733 4913; www.mangymoose.net) in Teton Village base has celebrated more than 45 years in business, and has been voted one of North America's best ski bars.
There's a wider choice of après-ski bars in central Jackson, including several genuine cowboy saloons and a wonderful 1950s-style diner, The Cadillac Grille (55 North Cache Street; tel: (307) 733 3279; www.cadillac-grille.com).
There is a limited but adequate choice of restaurants in Jackson Hole at the base of the mountain, but a far wider selection in Jackson with options ranging from fast food to gourmet.
Teton Thai (7342 Granite Loop Road; tel: (307) 733 0022; www.tetonthai.com), near the base village, serves undisputedly some of the best Thai food in the region and is a hangout for both locals and visitors.
At the top of the Bridger gondola, the Couloir restaurant offers fine Western cuisine amid stunning scenery. The gondola is also open for evening diners to sample dishes such as bison and sticky-glazed pork.
