Resort Hookup: Spur is Jackson Hole’s Hotspot
By: The Snow Biz Edit Team
Après, like skiing, is something that Jackson Hole’s locals do not take lightly. Whether it is dropping into the iconic Corbet’s Couloir or deciding where to grab a post-ski beverage, Jackson Hole’s local community is known for going hard. So, when Jacksonites put their collective stamp of approval on something, we need to listen. And, Jackson Hole’s locals have spoken: Spur Restaurant & Bar in the Teton Mountain Lodge is the place for après.
Spur opened its doors last season in the chic slope-side Teton Mountain Lodge, and Jackson’s tough-to-please locals immediately fell in love with the scene. Located right at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village, Spur garnered a devout local following from day one.
On afternoons during the ski season, after a day spent sampling Jackson Hole’s world-renowned skiing, local and visiting skiers file into Spur, making it the best après option on tap. The atmosphere inside Spur is a mix of urban swank and mountain rustic. Locals order locally made craft brews and share stories from the day, guests can sip on signature cocktails while watching ski films on Spur’s flat-screen TVs.
The bar area can get crowded, but that’s what après is all about; and, luckily, there’s a dining room and menu that complement the après scene. Spur’s dining room is the perfect place to kickback and relax after a memorable day skiing. Executive Chef Kevin Humphreys has a four-year run of being named “Best Executive Chef” by a local poll, and Spur’s fare is a testament to Humphreys’ skill. The Spur team calls their food “mountain cuisine.” Home-style shared plates and large entre dishes are made with local ingredients. The Snake River Farms Kobe Butcher’s Steak and 307 Fries (think poutine on steroids) are two must-order menu options after a day of skiing.
The atmosphere is modern. The clientele is young and hip. The food is delicious. And, the locals love it. So, after a cold day on the mountain, head into Spur—Jackson Hole’s new hotspot—to warm up during the après hours.
