Après-ski in Jackson Hole is divided between the slopeside scene and the more atmospheric nightspots in downtown Jackson.

The Mangy Moose (tel: +1 307 733 4913; in Teton Village base has managed to survive all the changes over the years and remains one of the world’s great après-ski venues. Regularly topping various magazines’ best ski bar polls, skiers and boarders have been frequenting the establishment since 1967.

Eating out

Teton Thai (tel: +1 307 733 0022;, near the base village, serves undisputedly some of the best Thai food in the region and is a hangout for both locals and visitors.

In Jackson town the choice is vast with every niche catered for, including vegan diners at the popular Lotus Café (tel: +1 307 734 0882).
