April in Jackson, WY, can mean a lot of “Closed” or “We’ll be back in May” signs. The ski slopes have closed for the season—this Winter produced just shy of 500 inches of snow! There’s still a significant amount of snow on the ground this year and still flurrying. It’s below freezing today. The roads are quiet. Nothing is blooming yet—and YET, it’s a banner time to visit a normally pricey destination. Many restaurants offer 2 for 1 dinners or killer specials and hotels offer discounted rooms. Some of the dinner proceeds benefit local charities. So, while Yellowstone is not a road trip option third week, parts of Grand Teton National Park are open, we can snow shoe, enjoy a relaxing visit to one the most beautiful areas of the US. This is a anti-inflammatory dish is a killer slab of salmon and grilled vegetable dish from Calico restaurant (on the way back to Teton Village). Off season at a Thin Place has its advantages.
