Fall is legendary for fly fishing in Jackson Hole. Whether a seasoned angler or a novice, you’ll be dazzled by the scenery as you float on the clear waters of the Snake River along the dramatic Tetons. […]
Snow white peaks, sizzling yellow aspen trees, the cool, crisp air of an impending winter: all these traits combine to make autumn perhaps the most universally loved season of all. This season is one of sublime beauty, a time when our gratitude for the great outdoors reaches its zenith. It’s also the season when the need for conservation becomes most apparent.
That’s why Jackson Hole’s local tourism board has named October the official conservation month in Jackson Hole, and Teton Mountain Lodge is proud to consider itself a partner!
To celebrate the environment and champion conservation efforts, town officials have launched SHIFT, an annual conservation festival designed to both raise awareness about conservation in Jackson Hole as well as bring much needed tourism to the area during the slow fall off-season months.
The event will begin on Friday with a local food and beverage festival featuring Teton Lodge’s renowned Western cuisine from award-winning chefs at Spur Restaurant & Bar. Survey local organic dishes and delight in rocky mountain libations from the best restaurant in Jackson.
And it’s not just about eating the food, either. Check out the event’s on-stage presentation and learn to butcher a pig, ferment the harvest produce, and make your own cheese!
After fully satisfying your culinary palate, stick around for a night of food-heavy documentaries and films. Here’s a list of the films scheduled to debut for that Friday:
The event starts at 4:00pm this Friday, October 11. Tickets are $40 which includes the price of food, demonstrations, and films. Additional drink tickets are $5.
But wait! That’s not the end to the weekend’s festivities! Let Teton Lodge be your home away from home as you take the weekend to explore the rest of SHIFT 2013.
Saturday, October 12 will feature a film festival debuting the newest conservation-centered films to
hit the big screens. Ski season is on its way, so be sure you don’t miss out on DEEP: The Story of Skiing and The Future of Snow. This thought-provoking film documents the effect of global warming on the world’s skiing and posits that melting snow could result in the extinction of skiing itself as a sport!
Sunday, October 13 culminates the festival with an art exhibition called “20/20 Shift”. The presentation will feature 20 images per 20 seconds in an effort to give thanks and demonstrate the enormous amount of human potential found in Jackson Hole’s many farmers, artists, hunters, and other conservationists.
Be sure to check into the best hotel in Jackson,
Teton Mountain Lodge, and experience SHIFT 2013 in its entirety. With its luxurious lodging options and world-famous Solitude Spa, Teton Mountain Lodge in Jackson is the perfect place to relax in between the fast-paced and intellectual events of SHIFT weekend. Let’s get together and celebrate the environment!
